In the context of COVID-19, the project will search, evaluate and disseminate international best practices promoting new online/blended learning approaches capable of delivering high academic/technical qualifications, high-level and graduate degrees. The project will focus mainly on higher education, but as there is a similar problem affecting all educational sectors, IDEAL will help inform a broader professional learning context.


Key areas to be addressed:

1. Capacity building of tutors and institutions

4. Accessibility, such as those with physical or hearing impairments

2. Effective use of technology

5. Pedagogy and delivery

3. Inclusiveness in the virtual classroom

6. Creation of modern learning materials

The ambition of the project requires partner institutions to take a longer-term view of sustainable digital solutions, whilst acknowledging the imperative of a quick response that had to be taken in the light of Covid-19.

The project is driven by Higher Education but will work in collaboration with TVET. As the challenge is shared, this provides an opportunity for collaboration and partnership working which will in the longer term benefit learners. This project also underlines inclusion in the design and delivery of learning approaches.

The project will deliver strategic approaches to embedding online learning across an institution as well practical guidance for tutors and teachers.
