Within the technological boom we experience nowadays, the demand after engineering specialists is rapidly increasing. This course is designed for teachers of all subjects, who desire to learn and then to teach efficiently about fast developing disciplines such as Computer science and Robotics, which are considered to be an inseparable part of human future life.
This course seeks to provide teachers with knowledge regarding Programming, Coding, Robotics, 3D printing, but also with teaching methods developing rational thinking, decision making, cooperation and communication in a cross – cultural environment. The goal is to promote practical, interactive and playful teaching strategies in order to enhance student’s motivation, to improve self – learning process but especially to raise the quality of education.
