15.10.2012

Kjer se življenje začneThe Best European Schoolbook Awards were presented last week at the International Book Fair in Frankfurt. An award also went to one of our successes, the textbook Where Life Begins: Cell Biology and Genetics for Biology in Grammar School.

This year, 26 publishers from 19 countries took part in this longstanding competition. The quality of the 50 submitted textbooks was evaluated by a distinguished international jury of experts, whereas the awards themselves are regarded as the most prestigious European awards that can be won by a European textbook.

The award-winning textbook Where Life Begins ...
Where Life Begins ... presents an extensive and complex subject in an easy-to-understand manner that awakens student curiosity and facilitates learning of the fundamental concepts of modern cell biology and genetics. The textbook is the work of experienced textbook writers, top experts and professors at the University of Ljubljana – Marina Dermastia, PhD, Radovan Komel, PhD and Tom Turk, PhD.

More textbooks already in the pipeline!
Following the same didactic concepts and principles that have brought the Rokus textbook the award, further additions to the textbook series will be produced: Ecology and Evolution, and The Diversity of Living Beings.

We are pleased to share this news with you and invite you to view and use the free electronic version of the textbook, which can be accessed on the Rokus e-textbook portal www.irokus.si.
