BIOERA+ Bioeconomy in University Agile Teaching with Erasmus+
The BIOERA+ project has evolved from the need to develop, reinforce and make teaching methodology in the field of bioeconomy more flexible. Bioeconomy remains crucial for sustainable development of Europe. The Covid-19 pandemic confronted academic community with the necessity to adapt rapidly to the demands of online work.
For many lecturers and students, the lack of face-to-face contact resulted in less effective and less engaging classes. However, this experience can also be treated as an opportunity to enhance teaching methodology, alter the approach to the methods of motivating, activating as well as evaluating students’ work.
Workshops at universities
Until the end of June 2022, M-Powered will be conducting Design Thinking workshops for each of the partner universities. Lecturers and students will not only have the chance to learn the method, but they will implement the method while working on specific problems that emerged during the pandemic years in the following areas: teaching methods and techniques, motivation, assessment in online and blended learning.
The effects of these workshops will form the basis for writing a manual of best practices in teaching methodology, envisaged as one of the Project results.
