What topics will be boarded?

We believe our university is not taking advantage of its full potential regarding bachelor and degree teaching. This event will focus on re-inventing the way classes are taught as well as student participation and evaluation methods. The sessions will be:

  • Tuesday: New ways of presenting class content (SPOCs, videos, notes, slides…). Throughout this session, different alternatives to conventional slides will be introduced and the participants will have the chance to design new ways of presenting teaching material.
  • Wednesday: New class and participation mechanics (gamification, competitions, presentations…). We will talk about methods of participation and we will devise new options so that students have a more active role in the classes.
  • Thusday: New evaluating methods (tests, laboratories, projects…). We will review the current ways and design a more balanced, fair and flexible evaluation.

Who can participate? Do I have to attend to every session?
