Group of people

From September 20 to September 23, CHARM-EU Knowledge Creating Team (KCT) members, educationalists and experts met in person for the very first time after 1,5 years of working online. A relief for everyone involved in the design of the CHARM-EU curriculum. They attended a Hackathon in Montpellier where they were able to come together and work on their modules for Phase 2 of the Master’s programme.  

This event was the perfect opportunity to move forward with the definition of the content and teaching methods. Apart from the great progression on the modules and more engagement with the CHARM-EU Educational Principles, it allowed CHARM-EU KCT members, educationalists and experts to build stronger inter-connections and have fruitful conversations over team building activities and informal moments.  

We would like to thank you to all of them for the hard work, commitment, energy and positive mindset during this week that will be key for the future of CHARM-EU.
