Keynote About EEDA At IEEE EDUNINE 2024 In Guatemala

During the IEEE World Engineering Education Conference - EDUNINE 2024, held in Guatemala City, Guatemala (10-13 March 2024), Alex Villazón from Univesidad Privada Boliviana (UPB), presented the keynote "Modernizing collaborative digital education in emerging regions with active learning methodologies". 

The Keynote was done remotely during the first day Plenary Session of the Conference and describes the complete EXPLORE Energy Digital Academy (EEDA) framework, in which EUBBC-Digital Project is part of.


Abstract: Collaborative development of digital learning ma- terials in emerging regions often hinders their widespread adoption due to resource constraints, limited infrastructure, skills gaps, lack of training for educators, and cultural or linguistic diversity. To overcome these limitations, we applied a collaborative development of digital learning materials, applying active learning methodologies such as the flipped-classroom perspective, challenge-based learning, and the use of remote laboratories. Educators from different regions around the world co-create learning modules that can later be reused, adapted, or translated for implementing various courses and programs. Before publication, all learning materials are peer-reviewed to ensure high quality. Several postgraduate programs in Energy are under development in different emerging regions, following an innovative educational approach. More than 43 universities collaborate across 21 countries on 4 continents with the support of 5 Erasmus+ Projects of the European Commission, aiming towards a global network of educators to modernize collaborative digital education.
