Innovating Learning Design in Higher Education

-

The iLED project aims to enhance digital readiness, resilience and capacity of HE through purposeful use of innovative digital pedagogies, tools and learning design.

Overview

The project ''Innovating Learning Design in Higher Education'', approved by the Erasmus+ programme - KA2 - Cooperation partnerships in higher education, started with its activities in October 2022.

The project aims to enhance digital readiness, resilience and capacity of HE through purposeful use of innovative digital pedagogies, tools and learning design (LD). There are four objectives: supporting further implementation of learning outcomes (LOs) via development of an innovative, LO-based LD concept and tool; co-creating LD implementation in virtual/blended learning; innovating HE curricula through LD and supporting flexible learning; fostering teachers’ competences in digital pedagogies.

The Faculty of Organization and Informatics, University of Zagreb is coordinating this EU project led by Full Prof. Bla┼żenka Divjak, PhD. Project partners are the Goethe University (Germany), the University of Oulu (Finland) and The Open University (United Kingdom).

The role of IET

In particular the OU will lead WP3: Validating Learning Design in authentic online and blended learning and teaching environments, based on Learning Objectives and using Learning Analytics inventory (methods & tools). Furthermore, it will help to evaluate and update the initial Balanced Learning Design Planner.

Impact

  1. Supporting further implementation of learning outcomes (LOs) and student-centered curricula via development of innovative LO-based LD concept and tool, available in several languages, and their evaluation in international HE contexts.
  2. Co-creating LD implementation in authentic learning situations in virtual and blended learning environments to support effective learning and meaningful implementation of innovative pedagogies and tools.
  3. Innovating HE curricula through sound LD using innovative digital tools and pedagogies, enabling flexible learning pathways, supporting modular approaches, mobility and trust in microcredentials.
  4. Building the capacities of HEIs, primarily skills and competences of teachers, for meaningful implementation of TL and assessment aligned with contemporary learning theories and approaches, supported by OER and tools.
