Workshop “Explore first: Drawn on experience to gain a deeper understanding”

  • Trainer: José Lencastre (University of Minho).
  • 22nd September 2023, 15:00 – 17:00 CEST.
  • “Explore First” is a pedagogical model that strives to make the student the leading actor in their learning in scenarios where digital action is merged with face-to-face activity. The purpose is for students, working in small groups, first explore a topic using their prior knowledge to consider possible solutions. By struggling, the students gain a deeper understanding of the structure of the problem and its elements. Then, students explain the best answer.
