EMBED Training event: 4-7 June  

On 4-7 June 2019 the EMBED training seminar in Dublin, Ireland will take place. This 3-days intensive training session is organised by the project team of EMBED. The training seminar will be an opportunity to learn about state of the art of blended teaching and education and to apply new concepts on the current context of your university.


Participants will further generate feedback on the multidimension maturity model for course design as developed by the consortium (micro) and on the institutional strategies needed in order to implement it (meso).


You will also learn about the monitor to assess the maturity of blended and online educational practices at universities. The monitor is conceived as a multi-layered instrument with dimensions and indicators that were newly developed or adapted from previously validated instruments. Its goal is to grasp in detail practices and conditions for blended learning. All instruments are piloted across different institutions, programmes and courses


Invited participants are:

  • Teaching staff
  • Teaching and learning departments
  • Learning technology departments
  • University leaders
