The Technical University of Moldova expresses its profound gratitude to Professor Olav Jull Sørensen from the International Business Center, University of Aalborg, Denmark, for his valuable book donation, offered from his personal library.
Currently, this imposing donation containing 106 titles of works contributes to the completion of the big collection of the UTM Library, coming with valuable international literature in the economic and managerial field, in order to ensure the quality of the study and research process for university professors and students.
It is worth mentioning the notable support of Professor Olav Jull Sørensen in the successful implementation of projects financially aided through European Union funds, namely TEMPUS “Enhancing the University Autonomy in Moldova (EUniAM)” and ERASMUS+ “Introducing Problem Based Learning in Moldova: Toward Enhancing Students’ Competitiveness and Employability (PBLMD)”. His help made it possible to forward proposals for the restructuring of the Higher Education system in the Republic of Moldova by increasing university autonomy and plan definite actions for the improvement of teaching methods aimed at training the skills needed for the economic environment.
Professor Olav Jull Sørensen, as a pioneer in the development and implementation of problem-solving learning and teaching, introduced this revolutionary method to his own academic environment at the University of Aalborg. His support allowed the remodeling of 6 teaching curricula in Moldovan universities. Today, these study programs are the most requested by candidates for higher education.
The staff of teachers and students of UTM is grateful for the help offered for encouraging the development of new teaching methods in the institution and assisting the teaching and research process with international publications.
