Blended Learning: Advanced Teacher Training
Start date: Oct 15, 2012,
The BLATT project provides strong stimulus towards the implementation of the student-centred educational strategy, expanding a range of the educational tools which could help this process. Student-centered methods are the intrinsic facets of most of the e-learning applications. Through use of online methods students are in control of their own progress by covering the subject matter personally, by having the subject presented in the way that corresponds to their own learning style preferences and pace. This is also the step towards not only more attractive and engaging work but more efficient education. Most of the content is to be delivered through tasks in a solution-orientated and collaborative work-promoting ethos. The e-learning component of a blended-learning approach requires continuous contact between educators and learners; a significant proportion of contact hours will be contracted during out-of-class time and are dependent neither on physical nor geographic location.The project aims, however, not only to integrate new methodology, but to induce rigourous and thorough changes in the current curricula which are thus expected to become models for the wider curricular reform throughout the university. This is to be achieved through closely monitored alignment process and the implementation of wider theories of learning and through changes in assessment methodology. WIDER OBJECTIVE1.
