                         PLE actions developed in institutions of higher education are nowadays inserted in the context of  a

                         pedagogical innovation that can be summarized very shortly as "from teaching to learning,

                         a paradigm change". In this framework, the organizers of the workshops would like to ask workshop


                      -> Teachers: "Do you feel that your students should better do some activities in order to participate

                      in your courses? In which of those activities would you like your students to develop more autonomy?"

                      -> CCSPs members: "What tools do you see as enabler of those activities? What services can you

                        set up in order to enable those activities?

16h10 - 16h15 : You vote!

During the workshop we will collect a small series of questions. At the end of the day, all participants will be asked to answer the questions by an online survey tool.
