Friday, 3rd October – Aula 02A (Portátiles)

The METIS project ( gathers the experience of some of the leading research groups in the field of LD, and contributes to this aim by providing educators with an Integrated Learning Design Environment (ILDE),, and educator-training approaches for using the ILDE to support effective LD.

The workshop will lead participants through a cycle of Design Inquiry of Learning, supported by METIS tools and practices. In such a cycle, designers define their target audience and learning context, identify an educational challenge for this audience within this context, consider existing solutions to this challenge and appropriate theoretical frameworks, conceptualise a solution, prototype and evaluate it (using the ILDE support). Thus, participants and their co-designers will be able to produce a draft LD and deploy it to a VLE or another learning platform (e.g. Moodle, Blogger, MediaWiki) at the click of a button.

The assistance to this workshop is free and public, both for TEEM’14 attendees and non-attendees. Please fill the form to register in the workshop at:
