3 INSYSTED Webinars ON!

Three webinars of the INSYSTED project have been carried out in which the INSYSTED pedagogical framework and the Serious Game developed within the project have been explained, practiced and discussed.

The first webinar on the 11th November 2021 focused on introducing the instructional booklet and the INSYSTED pedagogical framework. Ada Giannatelli, Digital Learning project manager at METID – Politecnico di Milano, presented the features of the INSYSTED pedagogical framework, focused on MOOCs, serious games and forum-based online learning communities and explored how it can support the design of courses in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The second webinar, held on the 24th November 2021 by Alessandra Tomasini, Digital Learning project manager at METID – Politecnico di Milano, provided practical information and tips about how to use the digital learning tools in courses and lessons, describing concrete examples from professors who adopted MOOCs, serious games and online learning communities. In this webinar, a discussion with participants also brought to the identification of potential actions to guarantee equity among students, and practical advice about how to engage students when using these digital tools.

The third webinar, held on the 18th January 2022 by Thomas Volling and Lissy Langer, respectively Professor and Head of the Department of Industrial Production and Service Management and Ph.D. student at Technische Universität Berlin, focused on presenting the serious game developed in the INSYSTED project.
