ABC-LD @4EU+ workshop

The academic development team of 4EU+ is pleased to announce the official launch of the ABC-LD @4EU+ workshop for academic teams and teachers of our universities. We offer the ABC LD @4EU+ tool as a sustainable and creative activity for a developing academic environment taking into account contemporary and future requirements for 21st century education.

The ABC method’s main goal is to provide teachers and educational developers with a quick and engaging yet in-depth tool, building a coherent and student centred teaching. It is meant to support teachers’ skills and integrate teaching teams around shared educational goals. The method is taught via an interactive training conducted online, and allows the participants to design or redesign their modules, courses or curricula in a rapid, activity-centred and user friendly manner.

The ABC-LD @4EU+ workshop is dedicated first and foremost to academic teachers implementing 4EU+ educational projects but also those willing to start educational collaboration within the Alliance. Whole teams already working on educational projects, or individual academic teachers are welcome to participate in the workshop.

I would also like to remind you that, according to the regulations, if you are infected (with a positive test result) or you are sent to quarantine due to close contact with an infected person (quarantine according to the regulations does not apply to fully vaccinated persons), you are obliged to inform a student’s affairs office (respectively: r.kamińska@uw.edu.pl or ji.chomicz@uw.edu.pl) and acting Vice-Dean for Student Affairs (wa.student@uw.edu.pl) about the situation.

The notification should contain the following information:

I would like to remind you that it is not enough to report your absence to the lecturers who conduct your classes – cases of SARS-COV-2 infection require compliance with the national regulations in force during the pandemic.

 

Yours faithfully
