The reformulation of the education system through the Bologna agreement, creates the opportunity to tune and exchange all different partner’s experiences and use this intensive program to implement new methodological processes based in active learning from the students instead of knowledge transmission by the teaching staff. By building a trusty and accountable program to be fulfilled by all institutions may create possibilities for joint study programs and course fine tuning within Bologna framework.

The teaching and learning methodology will be based in classroom sessions, where the topics will be presented using multimedia facilities, such as power-point slides, videos and demonstrations. Particularly, demonstrations, simulations and videos will be used to show, in a realistic way, the topics addressed in the intensive programme. In parallel, an elearning platform will be used to support the pedagogical activities during the course. This learning tool assumes a crucial role in the intensive course and will assist future editions of learning processes in the area of robotics.

The intensive programme comprises the following 7 modules:

Module 1: Introduction to robotics
Duration: 3 hours
Lecture: Instituto Politécnico de Bragança
Topics: presentation of the IP course. Robotics: contextualization, history, advantages and typical domain
applications.
