DIGI- ENE initiative under ETF Network for Excellence organised a webinar dedicated to Digital Pedagogies on 31 May 2022 from 11.00 to 14.30 CEST.
The online event was in English with interpretation in French and Russian and it was open to all ETF Network for Excellence members.
The event raised a huge interest gathering more that 100 participants from different ETF partner countries and EU member states.
The webinar followed the launching event “Developing and Sharing Excellence on digitalisation of teaching and learning” organised in March 2022.
“Digital Pedagogies” is one of 4 areas identified together with DIGI ENE members:

A separate online event will be dedicated for each of the thematic areas. Next webinar will be organised after summer break.
The webinar about “Digital Pedagogies” aimed to:
- present approaches to teaching for effective technology integration into education

The last part of the webinar was dedicated to the second component of DIGI ENE Initiative: DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS. Development projects are thought to be bottom-up initiatives aimed at materialising the real change by piloting new tool/approach/methodology by selected CoVEs.
Roberto Righi (STEPS) presented 6 submitted proposals which focus on the following topics: innovative pedagogical approaches; flipped classroom; assessment of digital readiness; development of Digital Action Plan; creation of digital content.
The DIGI ENE focus is digital teaching and learning practices. The overall objective of the sub-initiative is to show how digital teaching and learning can efficiently increase students’ learning, presenting tools and methodologies, and supporting participating Centres of Excellence in integrating them in their working environment.
