METIS Event “Design for Learning: new tools for educators”

The Open Event was organised by Davinia Hernández-Leo, member of the GTI, as part of the METIS project in collaboration with Cibernàrium – Ajuntament de Barcelona last week (11th, 12th December) on “Design for Learning: new tools for educators” was a success!!!

The event was addressed to teachers from any educational sector and other stakeholders (academic managers, etc.) interested in learning design tools and experiences of use. Over 100 participants attended the plenary sessions: a talk by Grainne Conole on “Learning Design” and a Panel sharing “experiences of using the ILDE“, with representatives from diverse educational institutions including Àgora association, KEK-Eurotraining, The Open University, the University of Valladolid and the HandsOn MOOC initiative.

The interest shown by participants in the 6-hour hands-on workshops was also outstanding. 40 teachers (diverse educational levels, but mainly Higher Education, Vocational Training and Adult Education) had the opportunity to use learning design conceptualization, authoring and implementation tools integrated in the ILDE. One of the workshops was coordinated by Jonathan Chacón, PhD student at the GTI. Some of the participants will continue in contact via a Linkedin group. And since there is a number of people interested that missed the workshops, the GTI will run an additional session in January.
