  • Delegation from Singapore's National Institute of Education visits Inspé

    On April 5 and 6, the Inspé d'Aix-Marseille welcomed a delegation from the National Institute of Education (NIE) at Singapore's Nanyang Technological University. The meeting provided an opportunity to discuss collaboration objectives in terms of training and research.

    The visit was marked by the signing of an application agreement by Prof. Pascale Brandt-Pomares, Director of Inspé, and Dr. Liu Woon Chia, Dean of Teacher Education at NIE. This agreement provides for the implementation of a student and staff exchange program.

    These two days provided an opportunity to present various projects and actions undertaken by our institution:

    • Celavie project, for a multilingual theatrical performance approach, led by Sandrine Eschenauer, teacher-researcher and Isabelle Brugnoli PEMF at Mistral school in Aix-en-Provence, and supported by the Ampiric pilot cluster.
    • Julien Garric, in charge of the laïcité mission on issues of inclusion and secularism.
    • Students on the Professorat des Ecoles and Enseigner une Langue Vivante Etrangère (English option) courses presented their Inspé training and the French education system.

    A visit to the Lycée International Georges Duby de Luynes was also organized in collaboration with Christophe Gargot, Délégué académique aux relations Européennes et Internationales et à la Coopération (DAREIC).

    This visit and the signing of an agreement open up excellent prospects for further cooperation in the internationalization of teacher training at the Inspé d'Aix-Marseille. These exchanges, in terms of both research and training, lead us to think about education and training beyond our national borders.

  • Hybrid Intensive Programs (BIP) - Call for proposals

    Opening of the third edition of: the Call for Projects for intensive hybrid programs (BIP), within the CIVIS alliance.

    The deadline for submission to the alliance is May 15, 2023.

    Aix-Marseille Université has been experimenting with this new Erasmus+ scheme for a year now, thanks to the alliance's network and the components and promoters already involved. We would like to thank you for your support, and look forward to continuing to deploy these short, flexible and inclusive programs within our institution.

    How do I submit a BIP project to CIVIS?

    There are two distinct administrative procedures for submitting a BIP project to this AAP - BIP CIVIS.

    You can submit your CIVIS BIP project either as a coordinator or as a participant:

    1) a BIP project submitted by AMU, making our university the coordinator (management of the program, tuition and allocated budget), the project must then follow an internal validation procedure (approval by the Component Council and CFVU), before submission to CIVIS - please refer to this explanatory page.

    By way of additional information, the next CFVU date for positioning yourself as coordinator for the AAP - BIP CIVIS is May 11, 2023;

    2) You can also have your application submitted by another CIVIS university, in which case our university will participate.

    Reminder: the BIP, a new ERASMUS + scheme

    This scheme enables joint interdisciplinary and international training activities to be developed.

    The mobility of international students within a BIP is correlated with project funding - whether for BIPs where AMU is coordinator, or for BIPs where AMU is a participant. Hence the importance of student enrolment campaigns for these courses, for us and our partners.

    Eligibility of BIP CIVIS projects

    The aim of BIP CIVIS is to establish teaching partnerships and academic exchanges (knowledge and mobility) with member universities of the alliance.

    • Proposals must involve at least 3 CIVIS member universities.
    • The program must have a hybrid format (virtual sessions and 5 days of physical mobility).
    • Participation in the BIP must correspond to a fixed number of 3 to 6 ECTS (or equivalent workload for doctoral students) - when AMU is coordinator, the BIP delivers 6 ECTS.
    • Proposals must be linked to one of the CIVIS Alliance's 5 Hubs or Thematic Clusters

    o Health

    o Cities, territories and mobility

    o Climate, environment and energy

    o Digital and technological transformation

    o Societies, culture and heritage

    The CIVIS coordination team will be happy to answer any questions you may have:

  • E-BELONG: Sense of Belonging in Online Learning Environments

    The E-BELONG: Sense of Belonging in Online Learning Environments project has been selected by the European Commission under the Erasmus + program, Strategic Partnerships for Digital Education Readiness Projects. This new CIVIS educational initiative focused on pedagogical innovation will address the social and emotional engagement of students in an online learning environment, with the aim of finding effective ways to facilitate online education. The initiative involves seven universities in the CIVIS alliance and is coordinated by the University of Bucharest.
    COVID-19 has accelerated the digital transformation of higher education, and this "forced digitization" has naturally been accompanied by numerous challenges, the main one being to ensure the continuity of the teaching and learning process under the unexpected conditions imposed by restrictions on social interaction. Successful learning depends not only on the quality of the knowledge and skills to be acquired, but also on the quality of social interaction between students and instructors.
    In these circumstances, the CIVIS expert group on innovative pedagogies decided to take up the challenge and tackle this issue with the development of the E-BELONG project. Seven universities in the CIVIS alliance will work collaboratively on this initiative to address the social and emotional engagement of students in online learning, and more specifically on two aspects of pedagogical innovation that have not yet been addressed: (1) equity for vulnerable groups and (2) ensuring the socio-emotional conditions for learning in higher education.

    Project objectives :

    • IDENTIFY best practices that could improve teaching and learning when using digital tools and create the conditions for students' social and emotional engagement in online learning.
    • PROVIDE a framework for the transformation and adaptation of learning support services, with a particular focus on vulnerable groups.
    • CREATE tools to develop students' sense of belonging in the context of virtual learning communities.

    The team involved in the project will co-create knowledge, support mechanisms and services to be offered at all universities. Project activities will include

    An analytical selection of vulnerabilities in the education system, with a particular focus on the emotional and social impact of the pandemic and the identification of new categories of vulnerable people, mapping of existing digital media used by member universities for teaching and learning and assessment of their effect on the sense of belonging,design thinking as a method for adding knowledge about opportunities to strengthen the sense of belonging among different categories of students to help with course design, support services and the creation of digital tools.

    The results and materials of the project will be openly accessible to the entire academic community seeking to offer high-quality online teaching practices and guarantee socio-affective learning conditions for its students.
