To reach the above objectives, each C-CoDE will be set up to achieve the following results, initially within the institution:
A. Review institution-wide plans and regulations to deploy digital tools, content and technology at all levels of education
A blueprint is agreed upon with all academic stakeholders (institutional, national, …).Academic regulations are updated to allow and promote the use of digital education
|B. Appoint and train technical staff in the operation and maintenance of a multimedia production studio||Permanent technical staff is capable of managing a multimedia production studio and delivering ready to publish/broadcast educational resources|
|C. Undertake the necessary physical plant works and procurement of technical equipment to set up a multimedia production studio||A fully functional multimedia production studio is on-site, allowing the production, shooting and editing of high quality digital educational content|
|D. Appoint and train a pedagogy specialist and 3 to 4 experienced faculty as academic advisors to the wider academic community in the use and production of digital educational resources||An education specialist and a team of experienced faculty are trained and are actively organising information/training seminars, as well as coaching fellow faculty in their educational activities|
|E. Train and coach university faculty in instructional design and in the use and production of digital educational resources||Courses are updated and integrate pedagogical approaches that take advantage of the full potential of digital educational tools|
|F. Design and implement quality control mechanisms ensuring that high-level standards are reached in the academic output of the Centre||The Centre dispenses high-level, high-quality, courseware and digitally-based pedagogical vehicles within (i) the institution and then (ii) within a wider community of STEM higher-education institutions|
The aforementioned training activities will be organised both on site (i.e. within the premises of the partner university), at EPFL or UM6P, or remotely, and will include seminars, webinars and/or intensive 3-4 days workshops.
For the duration of the project, a personalised coaching service will be offered by UM6P and/or EPFL to the newly created Centres and associated faculty for the production and use of MOOCs and OERs, as part of their pedagogical project in STEM education.
