Technology Enhanced Learning
 
Description
This research activity started some years ago to establish a set of competences able to support the whole University (uniPM) teachers in developing online courses to be used in a blended mode ( F2F + online) to improve learning of our students. Therefore a PhD curriculum was established and an embryonic support organization able to assist teachers in the didactic and medial design of their online courses was defined. During time specific research activities and national and international collaborations have been developed. It can be easily understood that a great attention has been initially devoted to Technology Enhanced Learning in technical and professional domains, namely engineering domains related to Automatic Control and System theory applications. This original interest was extended to Economics, Biology, Agricultural and Health Care domains giving rise to number of methodological and experimental research activities. Accordingly, at present this research activity is focused on:
  • Monitoring and quality assessment of web-based learning courses;
  • Evaluation of different e-learning environments;
  • Combination of formal and informal learning in adult education and LifeLongLearning
  • Personalization and adaptivity in the design of learning materials and activities.
Laboratory Experimental and implementation activities are located at CESMI
