Neuropedagogy is the new Erasmus+ project of FUE-UJI that will train university teachers through an innovative didactic method based on neuroscience. The Polish Academy of Business and Health Sciences will coordinate the 5 partners that form the partnership, including FUE-UJI.

This European project has been funded by the Erasmus+ programme in the “Strategic Partnerships for Higher Education” category. During the next two years, Neuropedagogy will train teachers through an online platform in which the teaching community will work on their transversal competences in the area of communication.

The consortium of the Erasmus+ Neuropedagogy project, in addition to its coordinator, the Polish Academy of Business and Health Sciences, includes the following partners: FUE-UJI through EuroFUE-UJI (Spain), INNETICA (Spain), the Angel Kanchev University of Ruse (Bulgaria), the University of Limburg (Belgium) and the University of Patras (Greece).

Therefore, the Neuropedagogy project consortium will develop neuroscience studies applied to higher education and studies to identify training needs, an innovative training methodology and a good practice guide based on neuroscience, as well as create an online training platform that will include the course “Neuroscience-based teaching method”.

This project is aimed at higher education teachers who, given the rapidly changing context in which we live, need to develop new skills as teaching and research staff. This brings to 15 the number of European projects that FUE-UJI will be implementing in 2020 through EuroFUE-UJI.
