Prof. Bergadaà will receive the 2019 Grand Prize for Pedagogical Innovation from these institutions on October 16 in Paris. This course had previously been a finalist in the international Reimagine Education competition in London on 11 December 2019 and selected by Swissuniversities in 2019 as well.
This year, the teaching becomes open to all students; GSEM students will be joined by fellows from other schools of the University of Geneva.
