The Unit for New Technologies in Education offers a wide variety of continuous training courses in ICT, either as e-learning or blended-learning. They are split according to the target group, covering the academic community of the U.PORTO or the external community.

It is also possible to schedule specific training actions requested by an organic unit or by a group of teachers, to meet a particular need or to strengthen an area of knowledge, in the field of ICT applied to Education.
In an attempt to complement the teaching/learning process using new technologies, the GATIUP offers a multimedia production service that develops a variety of materials for teachers with online curriculum units in the U.PORTO Moodle platform. Content types developed are: animations; simulations; videos (e.g., classes, laboratory protocols …) and different graphics (e.g., posters, logos…).

The Unit for New Technologies in Education also coordinated innovative projects related to e-learning.
The strong investment in innovation areas seeks to promote the increasing flexibility of training, responding more effectively to the growth of professional mobility of students of the U.PORTO.
