Analysis on how to combine new technologies with more traditional methods of teaching

2021.10.08.

The Covid pandemic upset traditional academic life and turned online solutions into a probably long term feature of university education. Nowadays, teachers and students can choose from an arsenal of extraordinary digital tools.

 

In spite of that, a lot of courses still resemble a lot to what they used to be, pushing a frontal lecture, a powerpoint presentation or in the best case a seminar type discussion into a Zoom room. Given the richness of the digital offer and the continuous development of this market, what university teachers need in order to keep up with the latest developments, is not a yet newer digital tool, newer online platform or more discussion groups but a pause to reflect on the possibilities this digital revolution brought into their practice. They possibly also need some guidance as to how to combine new technologies with more traditional methods to pursue pedagogical objectives that do not need to radically change because of the new circumstances.

 

And that is what we are bringing in in STROLL's intellectual outputs research. The IO1 outputs presents information in two topics: on one hand, it focuses on digital education (Analysis about the Questionnaire Digital teaching/learning); on the other hand, it focuses on the pedagogical advantages of exploring the city by creative means and virtual student mobility (Good/Promising Practices Report). Here you can also find an interactive map where you can find all the best practices geographically located.

 

The main objectives of this reports are to list the most popular, available online teaching tools and platforms for both students and teachers, to describe their experience of online learning/teaching process and lastly to identify best practices and examples of the best teaching tools with good examples of their innovative use for similar or very close pedagogical purposes. This collection of tools and good practices will be an open-source document which practicing teachers all around the EU can turn to in order to find ideas for their own classes and teaching assignments.

STROLL launched together with the University of Thessaly, the Complutense University of Madrid and Intercultural Psychology and Pedagogical Institute at ELTE, is searching for ways to integrate online learning into the curriculum not as a necessary evil but as an exciting opportunity to learn differently, giving possibility for students of the 3 partner universities to participate in a rich virtual student exchange program in order to study spatial justice in 3 different cities: Budapest, Madrid, and Thessaly.

 

The project that will last 2 years is financed by the Erasmus+ program.
