DRIL Fund: Digital Resources for Instruction and Learning

The vice-presidency for education created the DRIL fund to support teachers in creating digital resources for education. Two calls for proposal are organised per year. Teachers can submit a project with the submission form. An editorial committee composed of representatives from schools evaluates the projects.

Contents. The vice-presidency wishes to strengthen the use of MOOCs in teaching basic polytechnic skills (math, physics, computational thinking) and core concepts in science and engineering (e.g. control systems and fluid dynamics for mechanical engineers; electromechanical conversion and electronics for microtechnics). MOOC production can also be supported for master and doctoral courses when the content preparation is taken over by the labs.

Tools. In addition to MOOCs, we invite you to develop digital tools that provide more, quicker and richer feedback to students, that help them solve complex problems, give them the possibility to run experiments and link domain knowledge with a computational approach. The goal is not to replace practical work in the labs but rather allow to integrate experimentation and problem-solving in lectures.

Next call for proposal: November 5th 2018. Download the submission form.
