Intensive study programme for HE students - Amman (JO), 18th-27th February 2018
Overview of performed activities and materials

Introduction

The ENEPLAN intensive course with students was held in Amman from 19th to 27th February. Approximately 90 students were involved (10 for each HEI from Partner countries). Students, coming from different faculties, were divided into 4 interdisciplinary groups with a supervisor from the hosting institution, a coordinator from partner country and at least 2 tutors, who guided them along 4 c-mapping exercises applied to integrated energy planning topics. The University of Roma 3 presented the C-Mapping method and tools, prepared introductory materials, and supervised the groups' work.

Exercise 1 – Mapping students’ previous knowledge

Objective of the exercise was to encourage students to make the most of what they already know on the topic of energy planning, by identifying relevant concepts and connecting them with meaningful linking phrases.
