11-12 December – Barcelona, “Design for Learning” Open Event

Last Thursday December 11th the HANDSON project took part of the round table during the METIS Open Event.

The “Design for Learning: new tools for educators” event was organized by the GTI of the UPF as part of its activities in the METIS project and in collaboration with Cibernàrium – Barcelona Activa.

The event was addressed to teachers from any educational sector (with priority for Higher Education, Vocational Training and Adult Education) interested in knowing existing learning design tools and experiences of use. The program included:

– a plenary keynote talk by Gràinne Conole (“Design for Learning”),

– a Panel on “Experiences using the Integrated Learning Design Environment (ILDE)” (with representatives from diverse educational institutions) including the HANDSON project,

– and hands-on workshops where teachers had the opportunity of using learning design conceptualization, authoring and implementation tools integrated in the ILDE.

The collaboration of these two European-funded projects has been very useful and enriching. Thanks!
