MathICs is an Erasmus+ CBHE project (Capacity Building in the Field of Higher Education; Key Action 2). It is one of 164 projects selected at European level out of 1005 applications submitted in 2020 with a success rate of 12% in the South Mediterranean region. It has a budget of nearly 1,000,000 € and aims to strengthen the teaching of mathematics in Morocco through the use of new information and communication technologies (ICT) in order to contribute to the modernization of the mathematics education system in Morocco.
From January 15, 2021 to January 14, 2024
For the benefit of mathematics professors as well as PhD students, MathICs organize twice the following three training sessions together with a final phase of application of the knowledge acquired:
Training on the use of some software and some teaching material.
Training on the creation of moocs, audiovisual content and, in general, e-learning mathematics content.
Training on some pedagogical teaching methods using ICT in the classroom.
“Pedagogical adaptation to mathematics lessons.” The last step of the training period will take the form of a workshop presenting practical activities on the knowledge acquired. In particular, the trained staff will produce videos, moocs, etc. which will be discussed during the workshop. The final version of the works will be shared through some platforms.
To succeed in its mission, MathICs will install two media rooms in each of Moroccan partner institutions: one for the creation of digital content and the other for e-learning.
