Marc Landry pilote Neuron-Line !

Le Master ISIS devient un enseignement en ligne, en formation initiale et continue.

Le 4 décembre 2015

Le projet de partenariat stratégique Neuron-Line est lancé !
Le 4 décembre, la réunion de lancement du partenariat stratégique, Neuron-Line, a eu lieu à Bordeaux. Porté par le Pr. Marc Landry (UF Biologie, Collège Santé), ce projet européen vise à transformer la totalité du Master de Neurosciences ISIS en un enseignement en ligne, à la fois offert en formation initiale et continue.

This European project is piloted by Prof. Marc Mandry (Biology Unit, College of Health Sciences) and aims to transform the format of the entire Neuroscience ISIS Master program into online teaching, available for initial and lifelong learning.

Neuron-Line in a nutshell

Neuron-Line is a European project supported by Erasmus+ and based on a consortium of nine partners including the following universities: University of Bordeaux, the University of Strasbourg, the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, University West, Sweden; the University of Valence & the Jaume I University, Spain; the University of Krakow, Poland and the University of Turin, Italy. It also features the participation of the Mediterranean Neuroscience Society in France which opens collaboration with the Mediterranean zone and notably with the partner universities of the ISIS Master which are located in Egypt, the Lebanon and Morocco.

This international track of the Neuraoscience Master, delivered by the University of Bordeaux, was created via a Tempus European project and is taught by an international consortium. A large part of the classes are already carried out by video conference or accessible online via a Moodle platform. Neuron-Line will enable the entire study program to be carried out online by implementing new tools and modifying the course for lifelong training. The proposed tools will provide a large variety of educational methods that are suited to different learners (initial and lifelong training). These learners will be able to manage their own training as Neuron-Line takes their individual experience into account and organizes independent activities according to specific profiles.

The kick-off

This launch meeting gathered together all the project partners (from Spain, France, Italy, Poland, Sweden) in order to discuss the key upcoming stages of the project. For Bordeaux, as coordinator of the project, it was the ideal moment to explain the administrative and financial rules for a strategic partner project.

In the next few months, the consortium will focus on finalizing the training model (in particular for the lifelong learning section) and implementing the specific tools for e-learning and virtual meetings and classes. Three international conferences are programmed to follow the work in progress, the first taking place in Krakow in September 2016. These conferences will also be the ideal occasion to network with industrial partners within the biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors, a top priority for the Master, especially within the framework of lifelong learning.

For Bordeaux

Within the Bordeaux Campus, Neuron-Line contributes to the development and the promotion of distance teaching tools and innovative educational practices that may be expanded to other study programs within our university. This project is being developed alongside other modern, international study programs in Neuroscience such as Neurasmus and NeuroBIM.

The integration of the ISIS Master within a consortium boosts the development of this program and makes it even more attractive for professionals.
