E-Learning from Nature: Irish experience and results of an Erasmus+ project collaboration

Marie Walsh, Limerick Institute of Technology (Ireland)


E-learning from Nature was a project funded by the European Commission and the Italian National Agency for Erasmus+ programme. The project involved collaboration between six partners from five countries to promote learning in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) subjects and innovative teaching methods.
A website was developed to compile, collate and disseminate the results of the project. This is still accessible and includes: a database of local areas of natural interest in each country that might lend themselves to triggers for STEM teaching and learning; a collection of E-learning video lessons related to the local areas; a Teachers' Guide to promote various pedaogies for active learning. The Teachers' Guide included useful toolkits for implementing the pedagogies. These included teaching using real-life scenarios, actively involving students in the learning process, making use of new technologies and promoting transnational collaboration.
This poster will summarise both the results of the project, and the experiences of the Irish teachers who took part in the project. It will also evaluate current interactions with the website and the Facebook page associated with dissemination of the project.
