The staff training is part of eDESK’s training itinerary for university educators. Participants must complete the eDESK MOOC before joining the face-to-face training,  which is focused on the development of digital and entrepreneurial skills among university faculty.

The face-to-face training will focus on providing faculty with tools for the implementation of hybrid, digital and blended methodologies in their classes.

Once the face-to-face training in Lisbon is completed, participants will carry out a pilot implementation of the methodology in their classess following what they have learned in the MOOC and the Staff training to test the eDESK methodology.

The training will be conducted in English


Places reserved for educators from the partner organizations  of eDesk. The training will be conducted entirely in English, so a high-intermediate level is mandatory for the proper participation in the training. Places are limited. 


If you are pre-selected, you will be contacted via email by eDESK for arranging the details. Remember that your travel costs, accomodation and meals in Lisbon during the training will be covered by the eDESK project.
