INOOC in EADTU OOFHEC 2018 in Aarhus presenting our MOOC within the Horizon 2020 ANNETTE project

INOOC. UNED  has participated in “The Online, Open and Flexible Higher Education Conference” – OOFHEC2018. Blended and online Learning: Changing the Educational Landscape, organized by the EADTU (European Association of Distance Teaching Universities). The conference was hosted by Aarhus University, Denmark.

In the Conference, our work in the field of nuclear ET innovation was presented, and more specifically our current development of the MOOC on Nuclear Safety Culture within ANNETTE project in collaboration with TECNATOM.

Fostering innovation in the nuclear ET sector through e-learning and MOOCs within the Horizon 2020 ANNETTE project

Alonso Ramos, M., Sánchez-Elvira Paniagua, A., Sanz Gozalo, J., Abarca Ahijado, D., González González, F., Feliz Murias, T. & Castro Alonso, M.

UNED has played an important role in the introduction of eLearning to guide the innovation in the project. Our commitment to the project is centred in the MOOC “Introducing Nuclear Safety and its application to the nuclear field”. Nuclear Safety Culture (NSC) is a multidisciplinary discipline, the first driver for all nuclear organizations, and a must when teaching on any subject in the nuclear field. The MOOC, built on the expertise in NSC of the engineering company Tecnatom, and guided by the know-how of UNED in open, online learning and MOOCs, is then part of an innovative offer for advanced education, contributing as well to a horizontal communication between stakeholders in the nuclear sector. Also, the possibility to be followed by anyone anywhere opens the scope of the participants to professionals from other industrial sectors, and to talented young students or professionals. Considering the number of people retiring and the difficulties to attract talent to the nuclear sector this networking activity becomes one of the strategic objectives of the MOOC.
