Cooperation to implement Creative Thinking and Gamification for innovative online training of STEM students

Project Details

Description

To thrive in today's technology-driven economy, the current generation of STEM students, who have been affected by the pandemic, needs the motivation and determination to quickly adapt to the technological changes.
Consortium members will cooperate to identify, share and improve online methods with creative thinking and gamification techniques to stimulate learning using Digital Innovation for Social Change.
The project will provide a methodology and teaching programs for ITC (Information Technology) and CS (Control Systems) unit courses for improving teachers' competences in using gamification and creative thinking techniques to support them in the development of new learning materials, tools and evaluation methods to enhance the existing e-learning infrastructure used within their own organizations. The interconnection between implemented teaching programs at the consortium level will be based on the European e-Competence framework, which refers to the competencies in the IT professional work context.
Thus, students will benefit from new online tools which will inspire their learning through repetition in a stimulative way, increase their interest and motivation for the STEM courses, lower the dropouts, improve their creativity, help them to succeed in a rapidly changing environment and give them a common language for competences and proficiency levels applied and understood across Europe. Online tools developed in the project will add value to the classical approach of university unit-courses, through student centered learning, tailored to individual evolution on learning, supporting learners to choose an attractive and flexible learning path, which will allow them to better adapt to the demands of the labor market expressed through e-competences.
