The main activities of LiDe concern an intensive summer school on Lighting Design as mentioned in the topics above. Each topic will consist of teaching (lectures) and training (experiments, computer simulation, Lighting-Design applications and team projects). Since LiDe is a design course mixed with knowledge on technology and physics, the final activity will consist of a team project where all knowledge acquired in the summer school might be implemented. In order for the summer school to run smoothly, careful design will be taken in advance, i.e., organization and administration of the LiDe, structure and contents of the summer course and finally the evaluation of the whole course.
The learning outcomes from the summer school are envisaged to be:
- the theory related to the topic, i.e., light/technology, light/culture, Lighting Design within urban areas,
- the training material related to the topic, i.e., the technology used in everyday lighting, the technology used in cultural applications, the methodologies used for urban areas
Added value for students and teachers The course will significantly contribute to a deeper knowledge in these new topics and scientific fields, adding value to the students, the teachers and the participating institutes. This can be achieved by the structure of the course and the topics chosen to be taught. As a result, the teachers will be given the opportunity to exchange ideas in common learning topics and achieve an advanced knowledge by the multilateral cooperation at this international context. This will lead to a better understanding of the structure of lighting design in other countries and will provide the advantage to upgrade and enrich the current modules taught at the institutes of the participating countries. In addition, the synergies expected to be developed, will lead to a stronger and long-lasting cooperation, enabling the opportunity for further cooperation in common projects, as, for example, the Erasmus central actions, curricula guidelines and thematic networks. In addition, the LiDe will improve the quality and significantly increase the volume of multilateral cooperation between higher education institutions. This will be fulfilled by the structure of the course, the participation of lecturers and the transnational cooperation among the institutes to be involved.
