In January 2021, The Community of Practice on Geo E-Education (E!GEOCOP) started at the Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation. We started in response to COVID-19 as we transitioned to online learning but are still faced with many challenges moving forward. This community of practice in ITC will share good practices internally and with partners on reshaping courses, communication/interaction with students and colleagues during courses, publishing course content on learning platforms.
This project, in cooperation with the ITC Education unit, has prepared a talk series to address important aspects in e-education. Topics include e-learning tools, best practices in online learning environments, copyrights and open education, the role of instructional designer. The standard time slot for these talks will be on Wednesdays at 15.00 – 17.00 and the aim is to organize at least one talk each month. For the time being, they will be online and will also be recorded, so they can be (re-) watched at a later moment as well.
The upcoming talk will be on Best Practices of Online Environment, Copyrights and Open Education.
Wednesday 21 April 2021 at 15.00 - 17.00 CEST
