Haven’t you ever thought that there was something in the university that could be improved?
On the 8th and 9th of May the first Local Event on Education (LEoE) was held in the UPC, organised by BEST-UPC. The members of the UPC community were invited and both students and professors discussed aspects of the current education.
In total 23 participants, via debates and roundtables, discussed teaching methods and how to implement them efficiently. Amongst many topics they talked about: master lectures, project based learning, help based learning, cooperative learning and the case method. All of this was achieved sharing experiences, discussing pros and cons of each case, answering forms and debating in small groups in order to share all the ideas in the end.
This event is a result of the international education department of BEST which aims, with events like this, to gather opinions and ideas from members of the university community so as to keep improving the European university. The outcomes of this event will be published in documents that will be public for all the UPC community through the schools and for the general public via the BEST-UPC site.
