The project aims to provide a holistic view and solution in building total capacity required to transition from the traditional, frontal model of teaching in institutes of higher education to distance learning. Quality standards in higher education now mandates the integration of technology in its teaching methods – whether face to face, flipped, hybrid, or solely online. Specific emphasis is placed on pedagogical, technological, and educational know-how.
With this toolkit the project aims to provide the basic skills and competences that virtual teachers should master, specifically for the target populations, and to promote training system to achieve this goal.
The framework and the infographics of an online course was designed within the project. This can be used by teachers who are developing distance learning courses with digital content and resources, using different tools for communication and assessment.
