Title: U.OpenLab methodology: a conceptual model and flowchart for dynamic co-production and (re)use of digital contents
Issue Date: 2016
Abstract: Project-based learning offers a student centered pedagogy and a dynamic approach which promotesa deeper knowledge through real-world challenges and problems solving.The U.Openlab concept is developed at the University of Porto (U.Porto) in the context of theteaching/learning process and is assumed to be an interaction facilitator platform between real-worldneeds and practical works topics. The aim is to provide innovative answers and the effective use ofassessment results, the credits recognition for future professional or scientific careers and asustainable process oriented for, among others, universities heritage services' needs.The pilot-project in course at the University of Porto, focusing on the U.Porto Digital Museum, includesa technological infrastructure with three main components: several collections, an information andservices management platform, with its corresponding digital repository; the U.Porto communitycontributions management platform (U.Porto OpenLab); and an adaptive framework that will supportvarious interface applications with non-specific audiences.The U.Porto OpenLab considers two main areas: the bidding management area / calls forcontributions and a contributions personal management area. The professor, the student and theclient are the actors in the process. As for main tasks we point out the reception, selection anddistribution of real needs / problems. Having concluded the assessment process, results wereselected and an online publication was submitted. The inherent credits are recorded in a contributors'digital portfolio management and in the professional social networks profiles.The methodology will be presented and discussed as well as the process along with the obstacles andother factors contributing to the success and future replication of this experience.
