Due to the Covid 19 Pandemic, “Neuropedagogy” 3d online transnational project meeting replaced the face-to-face one which would have taken place in Greece. The University of Patras hosted the meeting, and partners took place in two days (4 and 5 of October 2021) interactive, collaborative, creative and meaningful dialogue.
University of Patras introduced Greece to their colleagues from the Wyższa Szkoła Biznesu i Nauk o Zdrowiu, Fundacion Universitat Jaume I-Empresa, Innetica, UC Limburg, UC Leuven, and “Angel Kanchev” University of Ruse. Using a cultural multisensory presentation, Greek colleagues aligned Neuropedagogy’s theorems with the sounds, the images, the dances, and the tastes of their county, trying to bridge the gap that distance had created among partners. They made it happen!
The first day was devoted to project’s Training Methodology. During the first day UC Leuven presented ideas and options for the methodology and the implications for the training program structure. Afterwards, a fruitful discussion among partners followed. The structure and the content of the training modules were defined, and each partner took the responsibility to contribute to the design and the development of specific modules.
The focus of the second day was the selection of both, the project’s online platform which will incorporate the course "Didactic method based on Neuroscience" and the Community of Higher Education Lecturers. The University of Patras, as the leader of this Work package, was the second days organizer. Initially, it was asked from each partner to present two examples from desirable platforms, that could act as good practices. In addition, all partners were actively engaged in a flipped collaborative activity. A shared dashboard was the collaborative board that gathered all partners ideas about both platform’s technological environment and functionalities.
As a result, we can say that NEUROPEDAGOGY Project Training Methodology, and Platform’s and Community’s Instructional Design had already made their way. Next tasks and meetings were defined and the 3d meaningful and effective transnational meeting came to a happy ending.
