Project Summary

The aims of this project are:

• To enhance student learning experience in PCs in accordance with the ET 2020 objectives by promoting development and innovation in T&L, supporting integration of technology & research, and dissemination of good practice

• To modernize HE in the PCs in line with Bologna agenda and to establish cooperation in education & training between EU & PCs and amongst PCs by promoting virtual mobility of teachers & students, and enhancing lifelong learning resources & means

These aims will be achieved through completion of the following objectives:

• To strengthen Teaching Staff Development Centres (TSDC)

• To build up capacities of PC HEIs’ teaching staff

• To establish a Virtual Academy of Teaching & Learning (VATL)

• To promote greater awareness on innovative & technology-enhanced T&L

About 30 staff & 100 trainers will be trained on innovative T&L methods and ICT-based interactive and elearning technologies for TSDCs. 28 technology-enhanced teacher training (TET) classrooms, 9 multimedia content building studios, other e-learning facilities and 5 new TET courses will be set up in PC HEIs.

The project places a strong emphasis on the capacity building of a wide cohort of teaching staff in PC HEIs by utilizing a multiplier effect via “train the trainer” initiative. The trained trainers will adapt & deliver newly developed TET courses to over 530 university teachers.

The project will provide PCs’ HE communities with an interactive professional communication, mutual learning and virtual mobility platform & Open Educational Resources – the VATL, to promote innovative T&L practices and continuous development of teaching staff.

As a result of the project implementation 6 virtual VATL’s communities of teaching practice around particular teaching approaches & disciplinary groups, an annual virtual forum on innovative T&L, as well as internal institutional incentives will be established to promote awareness on innovative pedagogy and excellence in T&L.
