Free workshop looks at future of hybrid model for law teaching
The Center for Education and Research in Innovation (CEPI) at Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Sao Paulo Law School is now accepting applications for a workshop called “Hybrid Education: Is This the Future We Want?” The free workshop will itself take place in hybrid format, between November 9 and 11. It is aimed at professionals who perform activities related to education (teaching, research, teaching assistance, extension projects, and academic or administrative coordination) on law courses, at both undergraduate and graduate levels.
The workshop will occur in hybrid format. On November 9 and 10, there will be synchronous meetings via Zoom, while on November 11, there will be in-person meetings in the FGV Sao Paulo Law School’s auditorium at Rua Rocha, 233, 2nd basement, Bela Vista, Sao Paulo and also on Zoom. There are 20 available places on the workshop, which will have 11 hours of activities in all. There will be three hours of asynchronous activities on the days of the meetings, at a time to be chosen, based on each participant’s availability. Participants who are present for at least 75% of the class hours will receive a certificate of participation.
The objective of the workshop is to provide a space for experimentation with new learning tools and methodologies, in order to collectively reflect on the incorporation of the hybrid learning model into Brazilian higher education institutions. During the meeting, the preliminary results of a study by CEPI on blended learning will also be presented and debated, allowing participants to share their experiences and best practices.
By the end of the course, it is expected that participants will be able to analyze the current status of the incorporation of hybrid learning and changes that higher education has undergone in recent years, identify the concept of blended teaching and learning, reflect on the advantages and disadvantages of this model, compare scenarios, identify strategies and formulate recommendations to tackle practical challenges for its implementation. As a methodological reference, the course will present innovative learning methods and tools that value collaboration and autonomy while assuming that learners play a leading role in the construction of knowledge.
If you wish to take part in the workshop, please apply no later than 11:59 pm (Brasília time) on October 23, by filling in the online form here.
