Course Delivery

1. Welcome and online presentation of the MOOC

General Introduction to the course was organized on Thursday 1st December 2022, where the University of Murcia as WP4 coordinator introduced to all the participants the training plan, the learning outcomes, and provided participants with instructions on how to join the course (both on how to access the online platform and make the best use of resources).

2. Synchronous lessons: A cycle of training webinars (once a week)


  • Each Tuesday for 6 weeks
  • Kurdish time: 12.00 h – Pisa, Oslo and Murcia time: 10.00 h – Évora time 9.00 h
  • Duration of each online session:  1.30 hours including questions time and debate

3. Complementary materials (activities, reading, video, link to web pages, etc.)

Additional material was provided to trainees including readings, a list of suggested resources to consult, a PPT of the training, and some video- pills on very specific topics. Resources are Open Educational Resources, materials from other European projects, materials developed specifically for the training and international training resources. 

4. Online Conversations

Conversations aimed to arrange moments of dialogue between Kurdish Universities and European Universities, as well as between Kurdish partners themselves. The online conversations focused on specific sub-topics of each Module, with the scope of answering trainees questions, providing clarifications and deepening cases and real-life examples. These Q&A sessions were scheduled in 3 moments: February 7th 2023, February 23rd 2023 March 7th 2023.

To facilitate the process, Kurdish colleagues at the end of each module collected questions, doubts, and issues on which they would need clarifications.  

5. Evaluation

Evaluation questionnaires were delivered at the end of each module. In addition, a general evaluation of the course is carried out to investigate the capacity of the MOOC to contribute to the project objectives and the sustainability plans of Kurdish universities for the training. Results of the evaluation are presented in the report available here.
