Methopedia - sharing learning activities and approaches

What it is and why we created it

Sometimes we need new inspiration for arranging our lectures: group work, tandem learning, open spaces, web quests, video casts or group puzzle etc. What about sharing these and new activities (methods) with others and learning from them?

Learning technologies developed in recent years have the creative potential for improving the quality of learning. However, this potential will only unfold if institutions implement suitable methodologies and learning cultures, and if instructors become able to integrate active learning by choosing suitable activities. As the effects of assessments like Pisa show, learning institutions and educators want to benefit from the different learning cultures existing in Europe.

Led by the German Partners, the European Methopedia community website ( was therefore developed for blended learning experts to share knowledge, methods and designs in a wiki-based platform. The target group of Methopedia are mainly educators/trainers, but also administrators and students. The first content has been provided by the project partners and application partners as well as workshop participants and users from connected networks.
