Innovative educational programs
Innovating for Education Elective
Accessible to all bachelor’s and master’s degree students (excluding students completing their PACES year).
The Innovating for Education Elective is an optional, second-semester elective that students can take in most bachelor’s and master’s degree programs. You can sign up for this class as well as another optional elective during the second semester.
In the vast majority of cases, you will help the university by contributing to educational projects overseen by the AGIR Department, a professor, or a professor and the AGIR Department. You cannot work on an educational project outside of the university. You can propose your own project or work on an existing project.
C2i – IT and Internet Certification
C2i certification attests that a student has mastered the set of skills needed to complete the work that a university class entails.
Assistance with producing e-learning modules and designing and creating applied games
The university encourages the creation of innovative educational resources that focus on harnessing the collective intelligence of teachers, students, and educational engineers.
