The aim of the A*Midex Foundation is to strengthen the excellence of the education courses at the Aix-Marseille site. It is at the origin of the "Academie d'Excellence" label created in 2013. Its purpose is to set up a laboratory for experimentation in pedagogical innovation, give greater visibility to education and support the internationalisation of curricula and the international mobility of students and teacher-researchers.
CALLS FOR PROJECTS - EDUCATION
The main action of the education component is the call for projects " Académie d’Excellence » open to education projects that wish to implement new actions on the following themes : pedagogical innovation, internationalisation of curricula, interdisciplinarity, pedagogical uses of digital technology.
In 2016, as part of a process of scientific support for projects and self-evaluation, the A*Midex Foundation organised an "Academie d'Excellence day" which is part of the Rencontres "Faire et dire la science autrement".
Three collective reflection workshops on themes with high stakes for higher education were also organized in 2017 :
