is the Touring Scheme?
UK turned down an offer to continue participating in Erasmus after
Brexit. Universities and other organisations in the UK can apply for
grants to help cover travel expenses and living costs as well as the
administrative costs of running the scheme.
The Turing scheme will provide placements across the world.
Applications have to be made by bodies such as universities, further
education colleges and schools. If they are successful, these bodies
can invite their own students to apply for individual funding.
However, the UK universities are still eligible to participate in
Erasmus programmes and as long as funding is awarded before the end of
2020 students and staff will be able to go ahead with their exchanges
even if they take place after the end of the transition period.
the HUM@N project, we aim to develop a set of tools and guidelines
addressed to higher education educators in the field of humanities with
the goal to improve their ICT skills, teaching performance and
consequently the attainment of their students and motivation.
Ultimately, we seek to renovate the classic ways of teaching humanities
subjects which are the least likely to be affected by the digital
transformation, yet are those that can benefit the most, bringing our
cultural heritage to a stake of the European economy in different fields
One of the three tools HUM@N project will develop is a handbook. It’s
content has been developed from case studies and policy recommendations
and it will help institutions and professors to learn more about the
project. The video about the Handbook is HERE
Video of the Handbook from the
tracking system for learners in MOOCs and
online learning of the “ASTRE” project
project ASTRE aims to develop a tracking system for MOOC learners. The
tracking system will focus on the impact that the attendance of MOOC
and the certification have had on the learner’s personal and
professional competences, further education, career path, professional
status, earnings etc.
The first intellectual output of the project is a tracking system for
learners participating in MOOCs and online learning. At the core of the
tracking system a tracking survey is addressed to MOOC learners that
have completed a specific course. This survey has been defined for
improving the quality of offered online learning courses and its impact
on egressed students. The results will be analysed and they will help
the course designers, to update the course and implement any necessary
change in order to improve the impact of the course in the student
success in labour market, either by finding a new job or by promotion.
