Inter-Institutional Hybrid Classrooms: A CHARM European University Perspective
11th November 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
The European Universities initiative offers joint curricula across multiple university campuses using an innovative, challenge based, and student-centered approach. Teaching and learning practices for these universities of the future need to be aligned with a technology enhanced, transdisciplinary approach across multiple European locations. A major challenge is how to deliver inter-institutional modules across locations at the same time. A hybrid classroom solves this challenge by offering a space for students to learn both locally and remotely, and is an ideal model for teaching across an inter-institutional programme.
Trinity College Dublin is a partner of the CHARM European University, and is delivering a Master’s in Global Challenges for Sustainability with the University of Montpellier, Utrecht University, Eötvös Loránd University, and University of Barcelona in 2021 – 2023. CHARM-EU hybrid classrooms are designed to support inter-institutional teaching, including one-to-one, one-to-many and many-to-many scenarios.
In this workshop, participants will be introduced to module design, development and implementation across an inter-institutional postgraduate Master’s programme, and how this design was supported by a hybrid classroom approach. A focus will be on the structures used to support inter-institutional module design with transdisciplinary stakeholders where the hybrid classroom is used as a teaching environment across five European Universities.
Sharing our experiences of the inter-institutional and hybrid teaching modality of CHARM-EU module development will be of interest to any higher education administrative, teaching, and management staff working in inter-institutional teaching environments. It will also be of interest to educational technologists and instructional designers seeking novel means of teaching innovation in their own universities.
Focus of the event
- Sharing and valuing ongoing teaching and learning enhancement work
- Considering the place of teaching and learning in evolving institutional contexts, e.g., in the context of institutional mergers
