The MOOC-Maker project „Construction of management capacities of MOOCs in higher education“ and ACAI-LA project „Adopting quality, accessibility and innovation approaches in latin american higher education“ that are part of the European Union’s Erasmus+ program, create synergies to promote virtual education mainly in Latin America through the development of workshops.
As a first work action, both projects have agreed to give diffusion workshops within the framework of the First International Congress: Educating in the network society, realities, challenges and perspectives to be developed in Medellín, Colombia; and reciprocally a workshop to disseminate results at the International Conference MOOC-Maker will be given in the city of Antigua Guatemala.
About the workshops
The challenge that today involves the internationalization of higher education has motivated the development of these workshops whose purpose is to show the management of quality, accessibility and innovation in the curricula of Latin American and European universities.
The objective is to carry out a technological and knowledge transfer, considering the aspects related to the educational and social inclusion for all; Taking into account social diversity and social and professional needs, to improve the quality of university curricula, through the effective use of pedagogical methodologies and ICT tools.
These workshops are activities carried out under two projects funded by the European Union’s Erasmus + program, through key action 2: „Capacity building in the field of higher education“.
