ECTNMOOC.EU is a website that offers a series of short, open online modules designed to enhance STEM-CPD (Continuing Professional Development) for educators. These modules cover a variety of topics, including lab safety, rubrics for assessing lab work, and effective use of digital tools for teaching and learning (TPACK). The modules follow a microMOOC format, with a solid active learning course design that focuses on a single teaching/learning concept and takes about a couple of hours per student. They consist of engaging, media-rich reading material, short video clips, and assignments. The online modules are designed with an active learning approach and a constructivist orientation using the ADDIE developmental model.
