NEWTON EU H2020 Postdoctoral Researcher




Nour El Mawas received a PhD degree in Computer Science from the UTT at Troyes in 2013. Her work was about the design of serious games for expertise training in complex situations like Crisis and Sustainable development. Her main propositions were the ARGILE approach to design participatory and knowledge-intensive Serious Games. She did her postdoc research (2013-2015) at Université du Maine about the design of instructional scenarios on Learning Management System (LMS). She was a researcher in Telecom Bretagne, she was working on MOOCs personalization in a lifelong learning perspective. Currently, Nour is a researcher in NCI (National College of Ireland), she is working on innovative pedagogical methods used to teach STEM subjects.
