DigiTel Pro Courses on Synchronous Hybrid Education, Blending Your Education and Online Education Now Available
The DigiTel Pro partnership brought together advanced “schools” in research, innovation and good practice in synchronous hybrid (KU Leuven), blended learning (TU Delft) and online and distance learning (UOC, OUNL, UNINETTUNO).
Experts developed online courses on models and guidelines for the design, development and delivery for each of these three predominant formats in a post-COVID perspective. The courses are in line with the most recent research and innovation. They include the student perspective that enables students’ readiness for digital teaching and learning.
The aim is to provide an excellent opportunity for continuous professional development (CPD), primarily for course and curriculum developers and for all those who support teaching staff and learners, secondarily for leaders who direct these processes in higher education. Relevant post-COVID issues are addressed, e.g. activating learning, interaction and collaborative learning, inclusiveness and assessment and feedback. The courses not only address immediate needs, but guide universities towards sustainable, high-quality digital education for the future, including continuing education and professional development. The courses also cover innovative models of multi-campus and international education and blended and virtual mobility.
The program can be integrated into institutional or national continuous professional development initiatives, as well as European Universities (EUI) alliances.
The courses are now available via DigiTel Pro Official Website. Including courses on Synchronous Hybrid Education, Blending Your Education and Online Education. Find below a description on each one of them and chech out more materials on Zenodo:
- Synchronous Hybrid Education – This course propels you to different learning environments with simultaneous online and F2F-presence. In order to tackle the concept of hybrid learning & teaching, discuss student engagement in this context, and help you understand the spatial and technological needs. The principal aim is to enable you to make informed decisions on how to merge the social component and the learning objectives & activities with an increased desire for flexibility.
- Blending Your Education – This course is about how to design and develop blended education and teaching (a deliberate combination of online and offline learning activities). Based on what we’ve learned from COVID Teaching and in the EMBED project learners apply concepts to adapt to a more inclusive and engaging blended learning experience, through guidelines and pedagogies leading to mature and high-quality education.
- Online Education – The course encourages reflection and active participation. No matter if your teaching model is going to be fully online or just a part of your hybrid model, this course will help you to understand the principles and the logics of the different elements interacting in an educational online environment.
