The SOURCE MOOC design methodology will define the general course outcomes and a short description of the aim and values of the SOURCE curriculum.

Each Module will consist of different topics since more than one competency can be addressed within the Module. For each Module, a standard template (Module descriptor) will be drafted containing:

Module short description

Learning outcomes and list of transferable skills

Learner workload

teaching and learning methodologies (business case, critical analysis, case study, tutorials, critical reflection, workshop, lecture notes, literature review, hands-on activities, etc.)

how the Module aligns to the SOURCE Outcomes

Indicative content sources per topic (text, web resources, reference books, journal articles, etc.)

The training modules will be used for:

– The engagement and motivation of the target group (high-quality content addressing real needs and skills gaps)

– Offering methods/strategies that create sticky learning experiences and provide practice zones to gain further proficiency (microlearning approach)

Regarding the specific topics at least one module:

will be dedicated to climate-resilient topics and how the integration of educational technologies can benefit them;

will be dedicated to using digital tools in conducting data-driven research activities addressing presentation, visualization and reproducible research;

will be focused on the methodologies and tools for designing video lectures (or audiovisual material).

A diverse set of qualitative and quantitative assessments will be developed and integrated into the online course. From a technical point of view, this includes self-assessment, case studies/problem-solving approaches, scenario-based questions, etc. Methodologically, the project team will design the certification process, taking into account the international best practices on the subject, e.g. ISO 17024.
