Overview of the C-CoDEs

To reach the above objectives, each C-CoDE will be set up to achieve the following results, initially within the institution:

Action Result(s)

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.
