The program is built on interdisciplinarity, collaborative projects and challenge-based pedagogy and is coupled with the different “labs” of the CRI that support students projects and courses (Makerlab, Gamelab, VR Lab, Mobile lab, MOOC Factory, etc.). Internships have also an important place in the program. Finally, students are also free to engage in various collaborative projects conducted in the “labs” of CRI and to launch their own projects. Their involvement is valorized in the curriculum.
You need to validate at least 6 courses, which means to have a final grade equal to or larger than 10/20. Grades will be based on your attendance (courses and conferences), oral participation in classes, quality of your homework and success to the final evaluation. It goes without saying that we do expect you to follow all the courses and pass all the exams. For your final grades, only the 5 best ones will be taken into account.
The first semester is an intense entry into the field of EdTech! Designed to provide you with a global understanding of the digital transformation happening in education, support to design a relevant and challenging research problematic or entrepreneurial project, the course structure encourages work in the form of projects, promotes exchange and feedback, multiplies formats (workshops, seminars, lectures, peer-to-peer sessions, etc.) in order to maintain an intense and challenging intellectual emulation.
After three weeks of Bootcamp which aim to create an emulation in the new promotion and create a common foundation of values in multicultural classes, you will contribute the following program:
UE.1.1 – Game Design for Learning
UE.1.2 – Learning by doing
UE.1.3 – Cognition & Learning
UE.1.5 – Instructional Design and Online Learning
UE.1.6 – Open science and Citizen science
UE.1.6.1 – Citizen Sciences, Digital Transition and Education
UE.1.6.2 – Introduction to statistics for social sciences
The second semester offers an additional experiential dive through a 4 to 6 months internship in a wide range of structures (laboratories, international institutions, associations, start-ups, schools, large and small companies, etc.). However, Friday is devoted to the continuation of the lessons and projects of the 2nd semester.
UE.2.1 – Philosophy as a pathway to social science
UE.2.2. Internship I
UE.3.1.4 Seminars and masterclasses
The second-year mainly consists of 9 months of internships (usually two internships, each with a duration of 5 months) and mandatory courses at CRI. The courses consist of 3 weeks of workshops and one Friday during the months with no workshop. Some courses will be recurrent and some others will be intensive sessions. Apart from courses, the students are also required to participate in the monthly Masterclasses which usually take place in the evenings (18-21pm).
UE. 3.1. Creating An Interdisciplinary Research Project
UE. 3.2. Critical Analysis of Scientific Approaches of Learning
UE. 3.3. Internship II
Throughout the year, students work on writing a Master Thesis based on a subject that they themselves have defined. This exercise is led by the mentors of our pedagogical team.
UE. 4.1. Research project
UE. 4.2. Design, Creation and Evaluation of an Innovative Project (Workshops)
UE. 4.3. Data and Education
UE 4.4. Internship III
