The FEMOZ project is pleased to announce that an online workshop series on new technologies and digital tools for innovative teaching was offered this summer in Mozambique for the colleagues of the University Mondlane (UEM) and University Rovuma (UNIROV) in the FEMOZ Training Centers for Educational Technologies (TCET), which were implemented in the framework of our Work package 5 (Capacity Development Hub).
For delivering these workshops, the FEMOZ project has engaged the renowned German company “Wandelwerk. Centre for Quality Assurance and Enhancement”, an expert company in the education field that offers tailor-made training and consultancy services in a variety of aspects of Quality Management and Higher Education Management worldwide (https://en.fh-muenster.de/hem).
The workshop series took place in August and September 2022, comprising five workshops and an application phase. The individual workshops covered the following thematic areas:
The workshops were designed for up to 15 participants (lectures of UEM and UNIROV). In these workshops, the focus was on participants’ activity and providing space to work on specific questions or challenges of the participants. Moreover, state-of-the-art tools for online teaching were presented and tested using free software. Furthermore, it was made sure that the software and knowledge could be used free of charge within the framework of the digital infrastructure in Mozambique (e.g., English-language, licence-free, no requirements for particularly up-to-date operating systems, can also be used on mobile devices).
The working material developed by the Wandelwerk (presentations, worksheets, and guidelines) were made available to the UEM and UNIROV for further use after the workshop.
