Teachers are always looking for new ways of getting their students involved, and the teachers involved in ESCAPAdE are no exception.

If you are also interested, please check out our MAPe web platform developed initially for the Erasmus+ “Asiafood” project, and adapted for our project. The teachers from the network have posted descriptions of educational methods they have tried. You can have an access to all cards, including those developed by ESCAPAdE partners (click on “ESCAPAdE” in the “Entry Search” folder). You will find for example:

If you wish to add your teaching experience, ask julien.rose(at)supagro.fr for an access code.

Some new teaching methods were used during the Summer School organized by ESCAPAdE and ELLS in August 2021 in Alnarp (Sweden). Here is a short description of student’s tasks during this summer school.

Students views on innovative teaching was assessed through a short online survey in 2019. Results of this survey are here (pdf file).

You will see there that many advantages found for innovative pedagogies: mainly

“It improves student’s engagement”

“It improves student’s self-discovery”

“It improves imagination and creativity”

“It improves transfer of understanding”

“It improves relevance to real life”

But students are less convinced that “it improves know-how and craftmanship”.

Students who experienced innovative pedagogies believe that their learning success was higher. They would prefer the proportion of innovative pedagogies to be increased.

But the quality of those pedagogies mostly depends on teachers who are providing them.

We are proud to share our experience with you!
