Descripción
There is little study on issues such as how to encourage e-learning in Spain, the interplay between traditional and multimedia dynamics in Materials Science and the crucial question of how researchers and scientists can and should facilitate the integration of Materials Science into society. In addition, more and more frequently students work in multicultural environments nowadays. This is why there is a growing need to have a deeper awareness of the worldwide research in Materials Science and a critical capacity to engage in understanding different cultures. With this in mind, we have developed a project that responds to both the need to improve online teaching based on multimedia resources and to bring Materials Science close to anyone anywhere: International Materials Science Seminars. International Materials Science Seminars aim at combining the expertise of several advanced research groups and creating a unique opportunity for foreign and Spanish students in terms of cutting-edge research. While learning online about a specific discipline, students from different continents understand how it is easy to acquire intercultural competences by sharing similar experiences. The impact of our project is highlighted, among other things, by the free experience and inspiration from the speakers, current protagonists of the research that they present. This project is in essence a bridge between two continents. Our methodology has been applied for six years delivering more than 220 seminars, teaching Nanoscience, Biomaterials, Polymers, Ceramics or Composite Materials. Since 2009, the talks have been offered for free viewing online, (>250.000 views in YouTube) reflecting a still growing audience. It is a global community welcoming people from every background and culture who seek a deeper understanding of Materials. On the long term, we hope it will serve to foster intercultural understanding within students and to advocate for innovation, scientific understanding and social consciousness of Materials Science.
