On September 27th – 28th, the third Steering Committee meeting in Rome starts with an overview of the activities performed and the results achieved. The result of the survey related to the “Quality education system and local needs” (WP1) is shown. Laura Tomè from UNDeC (Argentina) outlines that the market demand on Renewable energies in Argentina needs more competences on
The results are considered in order to design the new 6 modules, looking at each university needs and strengths and what they already have.
The meeting continues to deal about the methodology and the structure of the courses, detailed syllabus, accreditation process, planning of elaboration of didactic materials. A semester program, composed by six modules will be included in each University system. The program will be composed in 6 modules of 5 ECTS each.
Looking at the beneficiary country needs, Universities have to support and to facilitate accessibility (disability), equity of access (gender) and innovation. DIEGO, to head for these needs, aims to convert part of n. 2 courses, elaborated for lessons in presence, in video-lessons for open distance education and training (at least 30% each) through the WP4. This activity could support Universities to facilitate accessibility (disability), equity of access (gender) and innovation. Rino Ragno and Claudio Napoleoni from Sapienza deal respectively with the transfer of knowledge on Sapienza’s strategies on E-learning and on MOOCs’ networks in order to foster distance learning. MOOCs will give students an additional chance to be educated and train in their specific discipline of interest, a chance to learn more about Renewables, free, accessible to all, above all to the disabled people, at very high quality levels. In order to make more understandable the methodology of training in the case of e-learning and to give a direct experience, a simulation is carried out. Participants are divided in three groups and to each of them is asked to promote the university and the new courses through a video.
