The main aim of the project is to design, develop and evaluate a new educational model of learning programming languages and later advanced IT topics, which will be based on the suitably balanced combination of several contemporary educational approaches, modern learning environment and immediate feedback. We believe that proposed educational model will engage young people, as well as learners of all ages, to study programming languages and other topics of IT in a way, which is closer to their expectations, learning preferences and which prepare them for the life-long (constant) learning.
A balanced combination of contemporary educational approaches.
Modern learning environment based on the evaluated educational model as a background.
Eight programming language courses with more than 2000 microlearning units and 1500 code assignments.
Six advanced online IT courses focused on software and data engineering with real assignments.
Experience with the cross-sector cooperation between universities and SMEs in the international environment.
Advanced methodology for evaluation of learners’ behaviour using learning analytics.
Transnational project meetings were organized in line with the project milestones. Their main aim was to present the current state of the project, promote the intellectual outputs, analyse the data about the pilot deployment of the courses and discuss the open questions and future tasks.
Multiplier events entitled Innovation in Teaching Programming Languages, an educational model, were focused on the presentation of the developed micro-learning educational platform Priscilla. Simultaneously, the courses were presented to participants from different sectors (university, secondary schools, technological, and training organisations). Participants were able to test the educational platform under the supervision of trained lecturers and obtain new knowledge and experience.
