Learning Teaching Training Activity (LTTA) held in University of Palermo, Italy from 6-10 March 2023. Three Tallinn University master’s students – Darina Akhmetzyanova, Abimbola Toyosi Adegoke, and Mohammad Osama from the School of Digital Technologies (Human-Computer Interaction and Open Society Technologies study programmes, respectively) were accompanied by Dr Abiodun Ogunyemi for a five-day training activity under the project Redesigning Introductory Computer Programming Using Innovative Online Modules (RECOM).
Twenty-five students and eight teachers/researchers from Higher Educational Institutions participated in the event. The students received some lectures and worked in mixed groups to ensure that students from different universities belonged to a group. The students interacted with and evaluated four learning materials: video tutorials, mobile games, e-quizzes, and case studies, integrated into a virtual learning system, and provided feedback.
Multiplier Event (ME) held in Tallinn University on 20 March 2023.
The objective of the activity was to allow prospective participants to interact with the project deliverables, namely; i) a guidebook for online/hybrid learning, ii) Video Tutorials for online learning, iii) Games for learning, and iv) a case study approach to online learning; and also evaluate learning materials (project deliverables) after they engage with them. A total of 9 people participated in the event. Professor Merja Bauters, Dr James Sunney Quaicoe and Dr Abiodun Ogunyemi facilitated the activity, which was quite a success.
