INFINITUS – knowledge sharing in dyslexia teaching
Start date: Sep 1, 2014, End date: Aug 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

INFINITUS strategic partnership : How can we fight dyslexia in different cultural settings and with different target groups? In March 2014 Tietgen organised a Grundtvig workshop where all partners worked together sharing knowledge in the field of dyslexia in a bilingual context. The application is the outcome of a workshop. The topics for the activities are defined by the strategic partnership based on dialogues and knowledge sharing of the workshop. INFINITUS aims at : • sharing knowledge and innovation in the field of fighting dyslexia to enhance human resource development in the region • secure employability for people with dyslexia by enhancing learning possibilities for people with learning disorders • developing new innovative learning methodologies for people with dyslexia to strengthen the possibilities for persons with dyslexia to participate in learning activities • enhancing employability and motivating lifelong learning possibilities for people with dyslexia focusing on better use of human resources • promoting synergies and cross-fertilization throughout the different fields of dyslexia education and training There are different kinds of organisations involved in the partnership which are all involved in dyslexia e.g. teachers, researchers, stakeholder organisations and the National Dyslexia Association. This means knowledge sharing and development within the field. A special sub-work package under the project management in order to secure the quality of the project • quality monitoring • ensure process quality • forecast and mitigate risks for project continuity • check outputs against plans An external evaluator will be associated to the project management responsible for quality monitoring and evaluation. Expected outcome of the project : Output: Innovative methodologies and learning materials developed and tested in 8 European countries learning materials Identified best practices that are language- portable (generally beneficial/productive) and the elements that are language-feature linked (i.e. work when using some languages but not others) Knowledge about dyslexia in the partner countries and awareness of how to implement and use the DOT and other innovative methods in different cultural settings and with different target groups. Based on the recommendations from the external evaluator, the consortium will agree a two-year operational implementation plan, starting at the end of the project period which will outline: • A management structure for sustainability activities beyond the end of the project; • The nature of service to be offered to providers (learning materials/ guidance/consultation etc.); • The method of financing the sustainability initiative; • Intermediate milestones required to set up the above, and responsibilities of various partners. Aside from this, one will be able to observe: Sustainability of the products and the networks Website with all the information about the project and material will be kept accessible for different stakeholders, institutions and dyslexia networks. The open licensing strategy of the project will also ensure that anyone will be able to reuse and adapt the materials of the project for their own contexts completely without restriction.
