Multiplier Event of THEE project – Brussels | 19 July
On the 19th of July 2022 UNICA hosted the Multiplier Event of the project Teaching in Higher Education Effectively via Eye-tracking (THEE) at the University Foundation.
For two years the project partners, led by coordinator – and UNICA member – Middle East Technical University (METU), studied eye movements of lecturers and students through the use of special glasses during classes. The analysis of eye data has provided direct information about the cognitive process of lecturers, allowing them to improve their teaching skills.
These findings resulted in computer-aided learning content, which is currently being designed and developed to facilitate the rapid transfer of knowledge and skills that academicians should acquire.
Objective of the Multiplier event
On the morning of 19 July, the Consortium presented the findings of the project and shared the resulting learning contents at the University Foundation in Brussels. This was one of the Multiplier Events in the context of the project, with a few others taking place in other project countries: Turkey, Italy, and Lithuania.
