The Board of Trustees of the UB has awarded this year’s prizes to teaching quality: under the individual category, to Albert Cornet, professor at the Faculty of Physics, and under the teaching group category, to the Observatory for Education in the Arts (ODAS). ODAS has also been awarded the Jaume Vicens Vives award to teaching quality given by the Catalan Government.

Albert Cornet’s experience is focused on the constant improvement of learning and teaching quality. He has provided teaching with methodological changes, new strategies for assessment and the use of ICT tools. He has been a pioneer and proactive person in the adaption to the European Higher Education Area, in the creation of massive open online courses (MOOC) and recently, in promoting a methodological change to adapt the laboratory practices to the face-to-face restrictions due to COVID-19. In the UB, he has held the position of the rector’s delegate for teaching innovation, and he is currently the director of the Department of Electronic and Biomedical Engineering.

The Observatory for the Education of the Arts is a consolidated teaching innovation group of the UB that works on the research on teaching of university art studies. It is a multidisciplinary, interdepartmental and interuniversity group. Among the goals of the group are the promotion of the social commitment on education of arts through problem-based learning, between projects and equals; the improvement of teaching quality and the introduction of ICT tools as teaching-learning resources. It has two work lines: one to focus on the learning environments in specific subjects, and another focused on the design and curricular assessment within the framework of the studies.
