LEARN Award

On the occasion of EPFL celebrating its 50th anniversary with secondary school teachers, the Center LEARN wanted to spotlight teaching innovation in Swiss schools.
A call for projects was launched in order to identify innovative teachers and their projects addressing the digital transformation of education. The focus was on the pedagogically designed integration of technology in teaching and on teaching of computational thinking. A jury selected 10 projects based on the criteria of pedagogical innovation, evidence-based approach and collaboration or sharing with colleagues.
The following persons composed our jury:

  • Alberto Piatti, Director of the Department Education and Learning at SUPSI
  • Guillaume Schiltz, Professor of Physics and Expert of Science Teaching at ETH Zurich
  • Siara Isaac, Conseillère pédagogique au Centre d’appui à l’enseignement CAPE à l’EPFL
  • Francesco Mondada, Professeur de robotique et Directeur académique du Center for Learning Sciences de l’EPFL
  • Simone Deparis, Professeur de mathématiques à l’EPFL
  • Christiane Castella Schwarzen, Rectrice du Collège Sainte-Croix, Fribourg

We thank the jury for their great work!
On the EPFL education day, 10 finalists from 8 different Cantons, presented their projects in French, German, and Italien to the audience in the packed room at the Swiss Tech Convention Center. Congratulations to all of them!
