FOSTERING INNOVATION

FOSTERING INNOVATION

Innovation has always been a key point of our teaching. In recent times, we have been among the first universities in Italy to switch completely to online mode within only 7 days since the beginning of the lockdown, delivering over 6,000 classes and performing over 2,000 graduations in just a few weeks.

Massive investments on the newest infrastructure technologies are being made to face the challenges of today’s situation: the so-called “blended” learning (both online and on-campus) allows all of our students to feel part of our great community, even if they are prevented from being with us physically. Our special initiatives, such as free SIM cards (60GB) or refunds (up to 60%) for the purchase of a computer, are meant to cover additional expenses incurred by students and families in distance learning.

INNOVATIVE FOR A LONG TIME. INCLUSIVE BY CHOICE

INNOVATIVE FOR A LONG TIME. INCLUSIVE BY CHOICE

Unipd offers high quality teaching and rapid digital transformation because, for some time now, it has been working to this end. For three years, Unipd professors have been "going to school": they have attend refreshing courses to learn how to teach with innovative methods, which are not only restricted to the use of technology, but also include a more engaging, direct and empathic relationship with students, in line with EU guidelines.

We are aware that all students are different from one another, which leads to increasingly heterogeneous groups, and we care about promotion of learning environments meeting each one's strengths, by guaranteeing equal access to training, while taking disabilities, health difficulties, stories of migration and other difficult experiences into account, and promoting teaching methods that are increasingly capable of letting everyone experience fair and quality education.

For us, being innovative also means reducing bureaucracy and implementing cutting-edge tools such as Blockcerts degrees: the standard proposed by the MIT Media Lab in Boston, which allows the issue of a digital degree certificate (formalised and stored in a blockchain).
