The main goal of the iMOOC Climate Changes: The Context Of Life Experiences is to introduce the concept of climatic changes in the context of sustained development, relating it to the experiences lived by all of us of how to adapt to them and curb their effects, be it floods, water shortage, rise in the sea level or coastal erosion, to name a few.
1) Certificate of course completion through a peer assessment process.
2) Paid formal creditation (4 ECTS), if required by participants in a period of up to 3 months after the course, pending subsequent formal assessment of the work in the course and a face-to-face exam.
Participants are expected to study independently, exploring the resources, searching and exploring other relevant material on their own, doing the suggested activities and reflecting on their learning experience, producing artefacts that demonstrate their understanding of the topics and their competences in applying that knowledge. They are also expected to engage in the interaction with other participants and to take an active role in the dialogue around the topics being dealt with, contributing in relevant ways for the knowledge being created. They are responsible for their own learning and for contributing to a dynamic, supporting learning community as well.Formative assessment with self-correction will be made available, but participants are also encouraged and expected to discuss and give feedback to one another throughout the learning activities.
