Training courses for teachers in Universities for Nurturing innovative Educative practices in Distance and blended learning based on self regulation
TUNED main aim is to provide innovative teaching skills for professors and lecturers about the application of self-regulated learning (SRL) and motivation in distance and blended learning/teaching. Learning and Educational Technology Research Lab is a part of the consortium, contributing to applying the theoretical framework of SRL in the project context.
The general project objectives are: 1. Promoting an innovative short training course for professors and lecturers in HEIs, 2. Creating a structured cooperation between HEIs to develop a collaborative course, 3. Implementing a micro-credential system to validate the learning outcomes, and 4. Developing a MOOC for HEI teachers including practical, user-centred activities in the form of serious games.

The TUNED project will deliver four project results: 1. A pedagogical framework on collaborative and self-regulation learning (SRL) in a blended and online learning (PR1) 2. An innovative short-training course for professors and lectures in HEIs (PR2) 3. A serious game (PR3) 4. Guidelines for the replicability of the TUNED approach in other HEIs (PR4).
The project brings a twofold cascade effect: - From one side to the organizations that could involve
new participants, enlarging the impact of the outcomes - From the other side, providing new tools to the professors in HEIs and teachers’ trainers that will bring a multiplicative impact on the teachers providing a benefit to the students both in academies and schools.
