The idea of Digicamp is a simple one: many USI students have outstanding skills in one particular field of digitalization, from activities at university or their extracurricular experience. This knowledge should be shared.
The USI Digicamp 2024 will take place from March 4 to March 22, 2024.
Founder, USI Digicamp
“With the USI Digicamp we showcase the wealth of capabilities of our students and recognize that teacher and student are mere roles that can be inverted.”
Apply as student/teacher
Do you want to share your knowledge and digital skills with your colleagues and obtain valuable teaching experience at the same time?
After the successful past editions, the USI Digicamp, is launching an open call to USI students for proposing their modules for this year’s edition, which will take place from March 4 to March 22, 2024.
The idea of Digicamp is simple: some USI students have outstanding skills in one particular field of digitalization, from activities at university or their extracurricular experience. This knowledge should be shared. To do so, USI students take the floor and teach a Digicamp module.
We invite individual students or teams of two students from all faculties to propose modules for the USI Digicamp. Digicamp aims at gender parity and particularly invites female students to propose modules.
Topics for Digicamp modules should fit into the broader field of digitalization and its applications, for example: programming, data science, web applications, digital media (images/video/sound), social media, generative AI or the blockchain. Modules consist of 4-6 teaching hours (à 45min), so they should be focused on one skill, topic or specific tool.
Questions? Save the date!
We will answer possible questions in room A13 (Red building) on 16 Oct at 18:00 hrs.
Please submit your proposal by Tuesday, Oct 31 at 23:59hrs to [email protected].
The proposal should contain the following:
- your name(s)
- title of the module
- possible teaching languages (Italian, English or both)
- a short description (max 100 words!)
- your motivation why you are able and why you want to teach this module (max 50-100 words)
Students/teachers will be compensated for their effort and will receive a digital certificate. An introductory seminar on how to teach will be offered for one day during the first week of December. Participation at this seminar is mandatory for all student/teachers.
Your proposal will be evaluated by the Digicamp team, lead by its founder Peter Gruber. Please send your questions and proposal to [email protected].
The USI Digicamp 2023 will take place from April 17 to May 5, 2023. The definitive program will be published here by the end of December.
The program is aimed at USI and SUPSI students enrolled in the academic year 2023-24. Participation is free of charge. The registration will open at the beginning of February, 2024.
