Last week, Thursday the 24th and Friday the 25th of March, the DigiTeL Pro partners came together for the first time in Kortrijk, Belgium for the first official Peer Learning Event. The event was organised by the partners from KU Leuven. 

On the first day, we got to know more about the institutional policy in relation to the transition to digital education at KU Leuven, and how to positioning Synchronous Hybrid Education.
The partners also took a guided 
tour in the warm-hearted campus and unique learning spaces.  

On the second day good practices 
on implementing Synchronous Hybrid Education at KU Leuven, campus Kulak Kortrijk, were shared. 
And a presentation was given on 
the learning lab concept of integrating practice and research related to Synchronous Hybrid Education .

Overall, the partners concluded that it was a fruitful and very interesting PLA which makes us look forward to the second one on the 6th and 7th of October at TU Delft, The Netherlands.

DigiTeL Pro:
Launch of the courses

On Thursday 18th of November 2021, the official DigiTeL Pro Launch took place. During this launch the experts provided an 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-Corona issues were addressed, e.g. activating learning, interaction and collaborative learning, inclusiveness, and assessment and feedback. The courses will 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 will also cover innovative models of multi-campus and international education and blended and virtual mobility.

European Commission's Initiative: Professional approaches to digital higher education (Launch DigiTeL Pro Courses)

The DigiTel Pro partnership brings together advanced “schools” in research, innovation and good practice in synchronous hybrid (KU Leuven), blended learning (TU Delft) and online and distance learning (Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, The Open University of The Netherlands, UNINETTUNO). It will also focus on the student readiness for online learning (DCU-NIDL, Dublin).

Experts develop online courses on models and guidelines for the design, development and delivery for each of these three predominant formats in a post-Corona perspective. The courses will be in line with the most recent research and innovation.

The courses will be launched on Thursday 18th of November 2021, 14.00-16.00 CET.

The courses will be launched on Thursday 18th of November 2021, 14.00-16.00 CET.

Please join the Launch of our Course Programme on:

  • Synchronous Hybrid Education: based on settings that have in common that both on-site or 'here' students and remote or 'there' students are included simultaneously;
  • Blending your Education: with a deliberate mix of synchronous and asynchronous methods: based on a course design with a conscious combination of online and offline learning activities;
  • Online Distance Education: based on a course design with a continuous physical separation between teacher and student. 
  • Student Readiness for Digital Education: giving students the digital edge to succeed as an online learner at university and ​setting them on the path to achieving their learning goals.

 During this launch you will be able to meet the team leaders in dedicated break-out sessions.

Participation in the course programme, starting early 2022, will enable you as educator to make the transition from emergency online teaching during Covid-19 to fully professional teaching and learning in digital higher education. This first mutual acquaintance will ensure that the courses connect with your real needs and expectations. At the end of the session you will be able to continue interaction with the team leaders up till the start of the course.

Please find more information on the launch and the registration on our Eventbrite page.

Professional Development for Digital Teaching and Learning

The partners in DigiTeL Pro are prepared to valorise their expertise in continuous professional development courses (CPD) in order to reinforce the ability of universities to provide high-quality, inclusive digital education. They are at the edge of expertise in teaching and learning scenarios, connecting with main trends in practices observed during the crisis, and in the student learning experience:

- synchronous hybrid learning: based on settings that have in common that both on-site or ‘here’ students and remote or ‘there’ students are simultaneously included (synchronous hybrid learning (KU Leuven-imec);
- blended learning: based on a course design with a deliberate combination of online and offline learning activities (EMBED strategic partnership, TU Delft, KU Leuven);
- online and distance learning: based on a course design with a continuous physical separation between teacher and learner, synchronously and asynchronously (OUNL, UOC, UNINETTUNO);
