The second edition of the Blended Learning Award is out   

This award is given to the best curricular units taught in a format that combines face-to-face and distance learning.   

"The undergraduate students are very receptive to teaching methodologies that bring new technologies and combine face-to-face work with remote work, individual and group work, that address totally unknown areas, so they were a spectacular audience for the course we developed", underlines Margarida Trindade, professor, at ITQB NOVA, of the curricular unit that won the first edition at NOVA and also received the Grand Award of the Blended Learning Award (BLA) 2021. 

"This award was innovative in recognizing collaborative and international ways of working between teachers and non-teaching staff, as well as the great potential that exists in NOVA to create differentiating educational offers in emerging areas, such as scientific management", she adds.   

It is a competition that seeks to recognise the effort made by universities to adapt to the imposed need to have an education combining face-to-face and distance learning methods.

Starting now for its second edition, this Blended Learning Award will reward the disciplines that best applied this type of teaching in each of the three universities (NOVA University de Lisboa - NOVA, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid - UAM and Università degli Studi di Roma Tor Vergata - UNITOV) and in the different areas of knowledge.   

For the final score, the efforts of the teachers to meet the challenge launched by Covid-19 are also considered.  

With this award, the consortium's objective is to increase the quality of Higher Education by promoting fast learning and inter-institutional collaboration. All faculty members of the consortium, institutionally recognized for their scientific and pedagogical skills, can apply.
