Sobre a palestra:

Recently, Coventry University (UK) has been awarded ‘Gold for outstanding Teaching and Learning’ and for three straight years we were voted ‘Modern University of the Year’, among other distinctions. This is the result of different factors, including its Education Strategy, where Digital Fluency is one of its six pillars.

In this lecturer I will be sharing some of our initiatives related to Pedagogy, Innovation and Digital Media at Coventry University. I will mention some policies, units, jobs and initiatives that are supposed to increase the digital capabilities of both students and staff.

The session will include a period for discussion in order to share different experiences, namely the local good practices on digital education.
