Creating (and adapting) learning content for linguistics and languages courses

UPSKILLS training event – 15 September 2021, 3 & 4 May 2022

WHAT

This training event aims to bring together the project partners and provide them with intensive training on how to adapt existing learning content and generate new one as part of UPSKILLS. 

WHY

The aim of the UPSKILLS project is to identify and tackle the gaps in digital and research skills in existing programmes of study and develop supporting teaching and learning materials that incorporate aspects of gamification and educational games.

WHEN

The event will take place in two stages:

  1. A first training day on the 15th of September 2021 which will train partners on the pedagogical orientation of the materials to be produced and will provide detailed guidelines on how this will take place. 
  2. Two further days of training on the 3rd & 4th of May 2022, which will focus on aligning creators’ perspectives and ensuring uniformity in line with the project’s aims in the relevant outputs.

WHERE

This is an online event organised by the University of Belgrade and the University of Malta and will be held on Zoom.
