About the event

The GRE@T-PIONEeR is a Horizon 2020 project coordinated by Chalmers University of Technology, running over the period 2020-2024. 18 university teachers from 8 different universities located in 6 different countries gathered forces to offer advanced courses in computational and experimental nuclear reactor physics and safety. All courses are flipped hybrid courses, i.e., students work on online preparatory activities at their own pace before attending a set of interactive sessions organized on 5 to 10 consecutive working days. Those sessions are arranged in a hybrid set-up, with students following the sessions either onsite or remotely. In the 2022/2023 academic year alone, this innovative format was completed by 185 students in 8 courses, achieving an impressive 87.7% success rate.

This seminar goes beyond mere statistics. We will delve into the intricacies of course structure and organization, and critically analyze the effectiveness of our teaching methods in fostering student engagement and participation. Some parts of the seminar will be arranged interactively so that the participants can brainstorm and receive guidance on how to adapt and apply similar methods in their own engineering and educational fields.

Whether your interest lies in higher education, life-long learning, distance education, hybrid teaching or pedagogy, this seminar is for you. It is not just about nuclear science and technology; the strategies and insights gleaned from the GRE@T-PIONEeR project are transferable, offering replicability and valuable lessons for any other engineering field.

Do not miss this opportunity to be part of this educational journey, network with like-minded professionals, and explore ways to transform your own teaching methodologies.
