Creation of research-based digital materials (Moodle) to develop STEM competences
This course is an output of SCORE project (ERASMUS+ KA2). Its focus is on innovative teaching practices in an European context: using e-learning resources (JSXGraph & H5P), tools (Moodle) and Learning Analytics procedures, in order to enhance the quality of teaching and learning.
Course is organised in collaboration with Alicante University.
To familiarize participants with examples of good practice in STEM teaching .
To discuss the use of the Moodle to develop STEM competences.
To explore the integration of interactive HTML5 simulations in web environments
To encourage participants to develop teaching materials using e-Learning tools.
To learn how to use Learning Analytics tools to evaluate effectiveness of the teaching.
To share educational experiences and increase collaboration within the European dimension.
From the presentation of materials developed by SCORE project, participants will be invited to discuss some guidelines to create digital materials based on the results of didactic research and analyze their didactic effectiveness using Learning Analytics tools.
The course will be divided in three type of sessions:
PLENARY: background talks by experts or presentation of participants experiences followed by a discussion.
WORKSHOP: computer room sessions about exploring interactive resources, Moodle STEM materials and assessment analytical procedures.
WORKING GROUP: hands on sessions where participants, working in small groups and assisted by a tutor, create interactive learning material and Moodle modules.
1. Course preparation (online, starting on 1st of July 2018): Participants to share info about themselves and their KA1 project, to update Moodle skills and to have an overview of the materials created by SCORE partnership.
