Quality of Virtual Studies

The Project

Project number: 2020-1-LT01-KA226-HE-094740
Period: 01/06/2021 – 31/05/2023
Project coordinating institution: Kaunas University of Applied Sciences
Project partners: Savonia University of Applied Sciences (Finland), School of Coding Limited (England), Francisco de Vitoria University (Spain), Zagreb School of Business (Croatia)
Project summary: This project will improve the quality of virtual studies by creating teaching/learning methodology and implementing technological and pedagogical innovations (teachers’ didactic, digital competencies, gamification of the study process), which will increase study accessibility and learners’ motivation. This project is dedicated to educate staff about pedagogical and technological innovations (growth of digital literacy competencies among academic staff) and to transfer the good practices for cohesion in Europe. Teachers with a deeper understanding of virtual learning, pedagogical and technological innovations will be able to use this information in their subjects, which will ensure the quality of studies, student motivation and academic integrity. HEI will be able to ensure the quality of virtual mobility and the recognition of study results by developing the internationalisation of HEI at home (virtual student and teacher mobility, inter-institutional studies, mobility windows). The aim of this project is to increase the quality of teaching/learning in VLE and the study process by creating preconditions for the recognition of the acquired results during virtual mobility. During the project, the VLE teaching / learning methodology will be prepared and according to it, 4 pilot study modules will be created, in which students from the project partner institutions will carry out virtual mobility.

Outputs

VLE teaching/learning and assessment methods analysis report.

The purpose of this analysis is to investigate the situation of Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs) and related areas at institutional, national, and international levels to develop VLE teaching/learning and assessment methodology. 

VLE teaching/learning and assessment methodology

Based on the results of the research of VLE teaching/learning and assessment literature, legal documents and best practices, a comprehensive VLE teaching and learning methodology will be developed.

VLE methodology application practice

The VLE methodology application practice is intended for teachers who prepare and improve VLE classes according to the developed VLE methodology.
