>> Kick-off meeting in Alicante The first meeting of the SAMNIC Consortium was hosted by AIJU - the SAMNIC lead partner - in Ibi (Alicante), Spain, on 15 January, as an introductory meeting of the partners and start of the detailed planning process. It was followed by a one day workshop at the University of Alicante, the SAMNIC partner in charge of the development of the internet/ICT platform that will support the MOOC.
Important progress during the second meeting The second meeting took place on 5 March, in the Italian town of Padua, hosted by the Department of Cardiac, Thoracic and Vascular Sciences of the University of Padua, the Italian partner in the project. At this meeting, the training model was defined in terms of subjects, duration and learning methodology, and progress made in the design of the training materials. Among others, the MOOC will cover subjects such as the legal framework for children’s products, risk analysis and epidemiology of the injuries related to products used by children.
The pedagogical design will be focused on five key areas: learning, activities, resources, interactivity and assessment. SAMNIC MOOC will offer digitised materials on children’s product safety that will be freely and openly available to use and re-use for teaching and learning.
SAMNIC MOOC will be tailored to the real needs of industry (especially SMEs) and consumer organisations in order to enhance the skills and competences of their key staff on child safety (technical staff, quality team, designers, trainers, etc.)
The consortium of the SAMNIC project, coordinated by AIJU, is formed by the Czech Association for Toy and Play, SHH (the Czech Republic);the University of Alicante, UA (Spain); the European Association for Coordination of Consumer Representation in Standardization, ANEC (Belgium),and the Università Degli Studi Di Padova, UniPd, (Italy).
