ENSEIGNANTS ET INGÉNIEURS PÉDAGOGIQUES

  • STEAM Staff Week – 15 et 16 octobre 2024

Le département d’accompagnement pédagogique de l’USMB, APPRENDRE, travaille sur la conception d’un événement éducatif basé sur les approches MATIS (STEAM en anglais) dans l’enseignement supérieur.

Le STEAM STAFF WEEK qui aura lieu à Chambéry les 15 et 16 octobre visera à fournir une compréhension partagée de ce qui pourrait être réalisé par STEAM dans l’enseignement supérieur en identifiant les compétences fondamentales. Nous nous concentrerons sur :

  • les principes fondamentaux et la méthodologie de conception de STEAM,
  • la pertinence de l’interdisciplinarité dans cette approche éducative
  • et ses avantages dans l’enseignement supérieur.

Une combinaison de sessions plénières théoriques, d’ateliers pratiques, de tables rondes et de retours d’expérience permettra aux enseignants universitaires et aux ingénieurs pédagogiques de développer les compétences nécessaires pour intégrer efficacement l’approche STEAM, tout en s’alignant sur le déjà institutionnalisée approche par compétences.

Langue d’instruction : langues de l’alliance UNITA

L’événement est ouvert aux enseignants universitaires et aux ingénieurs pédagogiques sur inscriptions.

Un programme plus détaillé sera disponible dans les mois à venir sur cette page.

Rendez-vous les 15 & 16 octobre !

Enjoy a short, flexible international experience with UNITA partners.

Are you still hesitating about studying abroad for a semester or a year? Discover UNITA's intensive hybrid programs, a new format for international mobility that's part online, part face-to-face!

Erasmus+ Blended Intensive Programmes ( Blended Intensive Programmes ") allow you to take part in online teaching activities carried out by multicultural teams, and to spend a short period of time in the country of the organizing university.

Programs cover a wide range of themes, including the environment, the circular economy, languages, literature, cultural heritage and food. All students can apply for a BIP, whatever their field and level of study, provided they meet the prerequisites for each program.

Funded by Erasmus +, a BIP also enables you to receive ECTS credits for the distance learning part of the program as well as for the period abroad!

Students taking part in the intensive program receive Erasmus+ funding on a flat-rate basis:

  • 79€ per day for a stay of 5 to 14 days to finance your accommodation and living expenses,
  • 56€ per additional day for longer stays (up to 30 days),
  • Possibility of a financial supplement and/or travel package for students with fewer opportunities and for those who use less polluting modes of transport: green mobility top-up and inclusion top-up.

Marine BOUILLETUSMB student who took part in a BIP on European citizenship in Portugal:

I took part in the Intensive Hybrid Program in Portugal on European identity and citizenship. I found out about it via an e-mail from our director Claire Salmon, who told us that this program could be of interest to our academics, as I study political science and international relations.

From an academic point of view, this academics was beneficial, as I was able to deepen my knowledge of the European instructions and other points related to this subject.

On a personal levelit allowed me to open up to new people and cultures.to new people and new cultures.

I have very fond memories of this program and it was an unforgettable experience. It's a real opportunity to deepen your knowledge of a subject, in another country, at virtually no cost.

UCIL (Collaborative International Learning at UNITA) allows you to integrate an international dimension into your courses.

A UCIL, whose practical application comes from the word "COIL" (Collaborative online international learning), is a type of online teaching that enables you to integrate an international dimension into your courses without the need for geographical mobility.

By adapting all or part of your course to include a period of pedagogical collaboration between you and an Alliance colleague from a different country, and/or a period during which international students work online synchronously or asynchronously. It's an innovative approach that provides students and teachers with a meaningful intercultural experience.

Learning foreign languages

What is intercomprehension? 

Intercomprehension between neighboring languages (CI) is a language acquisition methodology that enables you to quickly learn to understand several foreign languages from the same linguistic family.

En pratique, il s’agit de développer des stratégies cognitives qui permettent de tirer parti du bagage linguistique dont chacun dispose déjà, en le valorisant naturellement et rapidement. Pour cela, l’IC construit des ponts entre les langues et permet une compréhension réceptive et mutuelle des langues voisines, et à une capacité d’interaction avec des personnes qui les parlent.

Why promote this approach?

UNITA is an alliance of 5 Romance-language countries: France, Spain, Italy, Portugal and Romania. This makes it an ideal location for developing the intercomprehension method and facilitating interaction and mobility.

When welcoming foreign students to our courses, teachers of all disciplines are made aware of the intercomprehension method, which facilitates access to courses taught in French.

For students:

Since the start of the 2021 academic year, USMB has been offering intercomprehension courses, which are available in the same way as learning a modern foreign language. They can therefore be integrated into your course of study, depending on your background. Find out about the possibility of taking these courses when you register for your course.

D’autres formations courtes et événements ponctuels ayant lieu tout au long de l’année peuvent vous permettre de découvrir et de pratiquer cette méthode. Ils seront publiés sur les réseaux sociaux et dans l’Espace étudiant.

For teaching staff :

UNITA trains language teachers to become IC trainers.
Short courses are also regularly offered to provide an introduction to or practice in intercomprehension.

Information will be available by e-mail and in the current calls section.

For administrative staff :

Short training courses are offered to administrative staff to introduce or practice intercomprehension.

Information will be available by e-mail and in the current calls section.

Yannick Vidal, educational engineer in the USMB's APPRENDRE Department, took part in an introductory course on intercomprehension at theSMILE 2022 event.

The principle of intercomprehension appealed to me; I was curious to see what it meant and how it was done. I was curious to see what it meant, and how it was done. It helped me develop exchanges, as I was in a group with people from other universities and other countries. I don't think it's just a professional thing, it's a personal thing too.

Participate in R&D and value-added activities

The alliance is carrying out a research project, Research for UNITAto develop new initiatives, particularly in the alliance's priority areas. Its aim is to structure research within the alliance, and enable the pooling of resources and knowledge.

Le projet est financé par le programme Horizon 2030 – Science with and for Society (la science avec et pour la société).

UNITA has launched six thematic hubs to structure research within the alliance:

  • Renewable energies - USMB contact: Benoit STUTZ
  • Circular economy - USMB contact: Grégory CHATEL
  • Cultural heritage - USMB contact: Stéphanie Beligon
  • Global health 
  • Societal changes
  • Digital World

The aim of these hubs is to bring together researchers from the 12 UNITA partners to develop new research programs linked to the chosen themes.

Grégory Châtel, research professor at the UFR Sciences et Montagne (SceM), member of the circular economy hub, supervisor of two UNITA co-supervised theses:

UNITA enables us to see other ways of working and to exchange ideas with international colleagues working on similar themes (...) to make links. For me, these are new research collaborations.

Committing to / defending UNITA's values
