Project Description

He who would learn to fly one day must first learn to stand and walk and run and climb and dance; one cannot fly into flying.

Friedrich Nietzsche

The ESCOLA course is an online course that you can complete in a flexible way

It has been developed to encourage and facilitate teaching staff who use engineering labs for their courses to better utilise the full range of teaching resources – including visual and interactive – to improve the quality of the learning experience for students.

It was written by experts who are passionate about engineering and highly knowledgeable about digital pedagogy.

More interactive learning experiences have been shown to increase student engagement and participation resulting in improved quality of learning and understanding of the topic. One of the issues faced in the engineering sector is that Higher Education educators are often lacking the digital pedagogy skills and most prefer to employ the classic teaching methods. This ESCOLA course aims to encourage educators to employ these immersive and interactive teaching approaches and digital teaching tools as a means of enhancing the learning of students.
