Technische Universität Berlin

The first round of our modules’ implementation finished successfully. Five universities implemented the SMAGRINET modules teaching 71 students in total. The students participated in an evaluation which is being analysed next in order to further improve the modules. After updating the modules, they will be taught again during the second implementation phase.

Status

Kaunas University of Technology and Technische Universität Berlin both taught their module in person in the very beginning of 2020. Université de Lorraine and Tallinn Technical University started their module when universities all over Europe were shut down due to the corona virus. Nevertheless, a change from present teaching to an online course ensured the modules’ implementation. The University of Ljubljana also held an online course in September.
In total, 71 students participated in this first implementation phase and their feedback was gathered to further improve the modules.

Results

First results show, more than 95% of the evaluated students see the modules as personally interesting. Roughly 90% also state that the module motivates them to learn more about the specific topic and is useful for their aspired profession.
Moreover, the feedback stated that different researches presenting their own research topics brings great value to the course. When asked for areas of improvement, students pointed out that they would like to participate more often and that some topics might need adjustments according to their level of difficulty.

Next Steps

Given the very positive feedback, only small adjustments will be made to the modules before implementing them again. The second implementation phase will most likely be held online. Feedback will be gathered and taken into consideration for the final version of the modules.
