Track 2. Educational innovation


The education sector needs evolution and changes. Evolution in order to apply student-centered learning paradigms with effectiveness and efficiency; changes in the approaches in order to allow including new methods such as the different varieties of MOOCs, in teaching and learning processes. Educational innovation is the tool that permits the evolution and changes in the teaching and learning process.

At present, the education sector tries to implement a set of changes that will shape the near future, not only regarding teaching and learning but the university mission. The introduction of learning paradigms is finding important difficulties to take place. Besides, new models that are believed they might have a transforming effect in the universities (MOOCs for example) are now in full debate, not only about their transforming potential but also about their learning efficiency.

Innovation is a tool that helps to mitigate and eliminate existing barriers and, on the other hand, acts as transforming effect in the educational process.


This track wants to have results of the technologies/methodologies application that meet real needs in the following areas:

  • Learning communities
  • Learning personalization / Adaptive learning
  • Training and assessment of the teamwork
  • New learning models (flip teaching, etc.)
  • Innovation in online learning methods (massive or not)
