4 Key design idea(s) To obtain in one year the competences that a current expert in libre software acquired by experience during the last years Holistic approach In line with other experiences in Europe and worldwide One step ahead of just technical skills (but not forgetting technical issues) Rooted in real world experiences and academic evidence Let s explore new learning processes
5 Some design assumptions Knowledge about libre software is maturing, facts are available Industry and society need professionals well trained in libre software Target profiles: IT engineers (informatics, telecom, etc.), but open to other backgrounds Goal: comprehensive, multidisciplinary education on the matter To reach, as a result of the master, the level of an expert with good knowledge of the libre software world All materials available as libre documents Global community: English for written communication Student activities as open as possible
6 Some goals for the master s program Meeting point around libre software in Madrid Academia Community Industry (Politics) The libre software way, e.g., synchronous (IRC) and asynchronous (mailing lists, forums) communication channels Service to the libre software community with publicly available learning materials Methodology based on blended learning
7 Blended learning Combination of good practices of on-site and off-site learning Suites well to the geo-chracteristics of the region of Madrid......and the lack of time availability of students Theoretical lessons 25 %: on-site 80 % Practical lessons 60 %): on-site 30 % Evaluation 15 %: on-site 30 %
