  Meet&Share: virtual classrooms for TrEC students

With the implementation of social distancing measures, opportunities to meet and share university life have been reduced.

In order to overcome this critical situation, the Department has proposed the Meet & Share initiative to the 1st and 2nd year students of the Bachelor's degree in Economics (TrEC), a virtual space designed to encourage relationships and informal meetings between students.  

Those virtual classrooms were 'open' from 28 May to 18 June 2020 and were lasting 2 hours.

The calendar of the virtual classrooms was available on the Moodle platform - Student Services Area (Career Coaching and Orientation Services).

  What's up? Online teaching from the students' point of view

How do dSEA students experience online learning? What are the difficulties, but also the strengths and good solutions in this period of distance learning?

Two meetings intended for our Bachelor's degree and Master's degrees students.

A moment of discussion, led by our moderators, dedicated to those who experience distance learning first-hand, but also an opportunity to gather indications and suggestions for improvement.

The meetings were held on Zoom.
