Project activities

The project will involve a number of activities and the project partners have agreed to undertake the following.

  • Schedule local ABC workshop(s) and provide evaluation data to the project partners.
  • Tweet photos & provide information to local staff to aid in project dissemination and reporting.
  • Develop and revise local country versions of ABC materials, so that they better align to national educational cultures and drivers.
  • Review and input to the development of generic technology advice (from partners not translating ABC materials into local languages).
  • Publish case studies (using the provided template) about how ABC has been localised and the outcomes for staff.
  • Run events to disseminate the ABC workshop to external institutions. E.g. a local ABC workshop available to nearby institutions, conference presentation, webinars etc.
  • Participate in the development of local special interest groups within each partner’s country or region.
  • Contribute digital content, including blog posts, Twitter posts, photos, videos, webinars (recorded), to aid project dissemination.
  • Some partners will develop joint paper publication(s).

As Associate Partners, the University of Oxford are also contributing to some project outputs, with a focus on how ABC can be used to support the migration to Canvas Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). Along with the University of Amsterdam they will bring an additional perspectives on how the ABC learning design method can be used to support learning design within Canvas.

The majority of other partners use Moodle as their institutional VLE, otherwise known as a Learning Management Systems (LMS). Some partners support multiple VLEs and will be able to share their perspectives on how ABC can be modified to suit these.
