Our three, in-class module frameworks have been co-designed and tested with universities and their student teachers (Spring 2018, Spring 2019), incorporating their feedback to help finalise the design of the modules aimed at the development of digital pedagogical skills of future teachers. Universities are invited to join their European colleagues in Autumn 2019 teaching programme. We offer three teaching module frameworks, with a flexible implementation. You can either implement the whole course, or its parts, depending on what suit your curriculum and needs.
All teaching module frameworks are supported by ITELab university teaching staff hub, which is coordinated and supported by lead university partner, University College Dublin (UCD). The staff hub is used by UCD during the teaching terms, to share the latest information and updates.
