University Goes Digital for a Sustainable Global Education

Stefano CAPOLONGO (docente coordinatore), Marco GOLA, Andrea BRAMBILLA, Erica Isa MOSCA

The purpose of the project is to improve digital skills of University teachers, to reinforce their capacity to respond the challenges Universities are facing during the COVID-19 pandemic or will face on future similar challenges. With active involvement of the lecturers and students from the beginning of the project, ATHENA creates, tests, and implements innovative digital practices, putting technologies in use to create new pedagogical approaches and achieve better learning and teaching experiences. The project seeks to foster cooperative learning environments, making them transformative and inclusive through the effective adoption of new technologies, such as e-learning, gaming platforms, virtual and augmented reality, systematically modelled to activate key competencies in digital learning. The project creates templates that lecturers can adopt and adapt to their classes, using different pedagogical approaches: the toolkit includes ebooks, videos, games, quizzes, AR and AI.
