UVAC RESEARCH PROJECT – Erasmus+ : INVITATION

UVAC RESEARCH PROJECT – Erasmus+ : INVITATION

UVAC is part of an Erasmus+ project called IDEAL (Improving Digital Education for All Learners) with UK FE partners and HE institutions in Greece, Italy and Turkey. UVAC’s particular interest is the effect on work-based/integrated learning including in apprenticeships.

This project looks to tackle the challenges of delivering effective learning through online delivery and the use of digital technology. The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the already rapidly growing EdTech sector, with institutions across the world forced to rapidly adopt online learning approaches. This has raised serious questions about the quality, effectiveness and capacity of this type of learning. Key areas being addressed include:
• Capacity building of tutors, practitioners and institutions
• Effective use of technology
• Inclusiveness in the virtual classroom and in the use of digital technology including the needs of students with particular physical, learning or communication needs
• Pedagogy, practitioner professional competencies and delivery
• Creation of modern learning materials

We are interested in garnering more information from our UK institutions with regards to your response during the pandemic. The following survey asks just 3 questions. Would you please complete, share and encourage others within your organisation to complete too. The more insight (i.e. responses), the more rigorous the other outcomes of the project will be. They include a newly created framework for digital competency in higher education, skills and work-based learning, a road map to successful and innovative practice and a set of tools to assist with the planning, generating and repurposing of programme content and, most importantly, how to ensure value can be added through changing pedagogies and practice.

PLEASE COMPLETE THE SHORT SURVEY BELOW. IT WILL TAKE NO MORE THAN 20 SECONDS.
