Guidelines And Tutorials For Teaching Staff And Verification Of Effectivity

Leading Institution: University of Granada

Detailed Guidelines and Tutorials will be designed for teaching staff on forms and applications of the Course, as well as different assessment tools and how best to implement them (WP6). Target for this guidelines and tutorials are Humanities Teaching staff. The effectivity of this output (WP7) will also be verified during the training seminars and the dissemination activities.

The Guidelines for teachers is in itself carrying an element of innovation, of course, for online teaching, not the classical, in person, class teaching. The challenges are numerous, considering the results of the preparation questionnaire already perfected by the University of Padova.

The guidelines will help teachers to consider the specific learning objective, context, pedagogical and didactical approach when selecting digital resources and planning their use within an existing course within university level content and teaching and assessment structure.

The expected impact is the use of those Guidelines first by teachers of our respective universities (Mediterranean) in the course of European Historical Landscapes. However, those Guidelines will be structured in a way to have great transferability potential to other courses in the humanities, because of the involvement of experts in pedagogy, psychology, didactics and sociology. The creation of Guidelines is primarily the task of the University of Granada with a number of pedagogy and Elearning experts and the University of Zagreb equipped with experts in pedagogy, didactics, psychology and sociology. The University of Padova will deal with the technical instructions.

The two teams will use first the results of the questionnaire (months 1-6), to understand which are main technical difficulties underlined by the teaching staff in order to develop main tools for tutorials.

Guidelines will be related to 2 different aspects:

1. On the contents which will be mainly developed by the University of Granada

2. On the didactical aspects and the different kind of exercises and assessment methods used and eventually improved and completed with blended activities which will be developed by the University of Zagreb

3. On the technical aspects of the use and customization of the course which will be developed by the University of Padova and the Institute of Cyprus.
