The ‘International School’ in Nuclear Engineering renews itself at a distance

Despite the restrictions on international travel, the International School in Nuclear Engineering (ISNE) has been maintained, in a hybrid format (face-to-face / distance learning) to the great satisfaction of participants.

It was out of the question for INSTN to cancel the iconic annual ‘International School’, which leads nuclear engineering training, with 6 one-week courses that present the international state of the art in the main areas of nuclear engineering.

Course speakers, international experts, and all stakeholders have rallied to offer an innovative, hybrid training course, accessible remotely but also face-to-face, in order to satisfy trainees who have been able to travel.

Five modules - neutronicsthermo-hydraulics, materials physics, fuel physicsnuclear waste management - were provided by alternating between sessions on the online teaching platform “INSTART Learning Experience”, virtual classes, face-to-face and remote site visits, as well as blended learning.

Trainees praised the organisation and format of the course: “Among the strong points of this training course, I can mention the excellent welcoming, moderators’ good organisation, and the variety of the disciplines.”; “Despite the distance, we got a very good understanding of the topics.”

The organisers are therefore considering using these teaching formats in future editions, with distance learning in some cases. This innovation will allow a greater number of foreign researchers to benefit from the courses given by our international experts, mainly from the CEA, IRSN and Paris-Saclay University
