Launching the European Maturity Model for Blended Education (EMBED) 

On 2 September EMBED will launch the European Maturity Model for Blended Education in Edinburgh.


EMBED is a reference model for developing and implementing blended education. The EMBED partner experts from Delft University of Technology, KU Leuven, University of Edinburgh, Dublin City University, Aarhus University and TAMK will share with you the development and use of the maturity model for blended education. This model embraces all levels of an institution: the design of blended courses, organisational aspects such as staff support, training and institutional leadership, next to policy development and strategies which enable an institution to innovate continuously its blended education, teaching and learning.
