International cooperation network for knowledge transfer of and digital learning facing postCOVID crisis

“International cooperation network for knowledge transfer of and digital learning facing postCOVID crisis” (InCoN-TDL) was launched in June 2020, through the project “International cooperation network for knowledge transfer of and learning facing postCOVID crisis”. This project was funded by the Pro Vice-Chancellor for Institutional Policy and International Relations of the National University of Distance Education (UNED) (Spain).

As a result of this, the network was configured as a space of international, European and Latin American confluence. It grew, got richer and benefited from the feedback by the participation and contributions of researchers and teachers from innovative interdisciplinary fields.

The crisis caused by the COVID-19, together with the isolation that has led to, has provoked the dismemberment of inter-university networks which under normal circumstances were strongly cohesive. For this reason, InCoN-TDL aims to re-establish the university network that allow the strengthening of connections between European universities and, in turn, on the basis of a specialized training process against disinformation, serve as an antidote to the infodemic.

Now more than ever it is important to address the connections between different university institutions through their teaching staff as well as the formation of networks with common objectives. From an international perspective, the collaboration between universities and associations that take part in part, try to give an answer to an increasingly uncertain digital society from an innovative educational approach, in which technology and digital pedagogical innovation converge in alternative methodologies that facilitate progress of the university education system.

In short, the network’s aim is to provide the university community with digital skills and raise its awareness in relation to the general threat posed by the phenomenon of disinformation for a cohesive Europe, and more specifically in situations of uncertainty, such as the one experienced during the health emergency.

Lines of work

On the basis of the established network, different initiatives are proposed:

I1. Train teachers in digital skills through massive open and accessible courses.

The first sMOOC was «Digital Competences in Uncertain Times», whose objective is to digitally train teachers and professionals from different areas of education and civil society. It is intended for educational institutions and social organizations with training needs in the five areas of competence established by the latest European resolution on teaching digital skills (information literacy, communication and collaboration, creation of digital content, security and problem solving).

The first edition of the course is developed together with the University of Quilmes (Argentina). (Date: 02/22/2021 to 04/04/2021)

I2. Request research and innovation projects that allow the transmission of resources and innovations made to European and Latin American contexts. It is intended to be done through the application and development of Erasmus + projects, K2 Action «Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices», in the actions «European universities» and «Capacity building in the field of Higher Education». Therefore, transnational projects will be based on a multilateral partnership between higher education institutions.

Participation in projects depends on the calls to be published and its acceptance.

I3. Establish agreements between universities, when the circumstances and mutual needs require it.

I4. Launch cooperative innovation projects between universities with the aim to offer a cartography of digital pedagogies. This map shaping will take into account two moments of analysis. On the one hand, it will analyze the students’ previous academic experiences in education and digital communication. And, on the other, it will be founded on the results of the study of the potentiality of innovative pedagogical initiatives based on communication processes, social networks, new narratives, performance, collaborative and active learning, augmented reality, among other methodologies implemented by the network members.

The UNED has been working in this direction since the academic year 2017-18 and is currently working through teaching innovation projects developed by the Communication, Social Networks and New Narrative Group (CoReN) (GID2017-4) Coord. Sonia Santoveña-Casal), to which some of the members of this network belong to. The Group carried out a process of mutual enrichment with contributions from other members of INCON-TDL and thus advanced in educational innovations from an international point of view.
