Description and objectives
We propose a synthesis of the problems and solutions of distance learning and give tools to develop interactivity and motivation of the participants to help them in the development of self-management and self-assessment of the groups. We also create activities based on works of cultural heritage (especially piece of art and craftsman’s work). The teaching activities in this IO allow teachers to enhance interactivity with and within the group of learners.
This IO also focuses on participants’ competencies in distance learning and provides practical learning tools for group work in an egalitarian manner, for reflecting on life and life-long learning, and for managing one’s own learning via self-assessment in a blended learning context. The pedagogical activities proposed in this IO allow learners to develop their peer learning competences, their motivation and learner autonomy.
