About the D-Skills Jean Monnet Module


Teaching and learning and the use of digital tools have become one of the key priorities on the EU agenda in the last years, but there is limited evidence in terms of the policies, strategies, and measures adopted by the European universities to respond to these new developments and further consolidate the teaching component, by focusing on the role digital technologies can improve the teaching process. In this context, this project aims to make a contribution by investigating the field of EU Integration Studies. With this objective in mind, the project proposal has designed teaching, research, debate, and publication activities.
