Objectives & Outputs


The overriding goal of the project is to develop a joint Master degree on ICT in ESD deployed virtually and respond to the increased needs of practitioners who want to play a key role in moving forward the issue of ESD in their working environments. The specific objectives are to:

 

  1. Develop a joint Master on ESD supported by ICTs consisting of interdisciplinary modules amounting to 120 ECTS. A Diploma Supplement will also be issued with the joint degree.
  2. Develop course modules addressing the environmental, social, cultural and economic pillars of sustainable development supported by social software tools and infused by open source learning objects.
  3. Develop a virtual learning platform for uploading course content, enrolment and maintenance of student records, academic profiles, scheduling of units, course monitoring, liaison etc. combining two open source platforms (Moodle & Mahara).
  4. Develop a blended training toolkit addressed to university staff who, want to infuse ESD into their teaching and courses and/or apply virtual tutoring modalities.
  5. Implement the training toolkit with 25 university staff from partner institutions to support the running of the joint Master.

 

During the two-year financial period of the project the following outputs will be produced:

 

  1. A curriculum for the joint Master degree equivalent to 120 ECTS;
  2. An e-training toolkit for training e-tutors on ICT in ESD;
  3. A virtual learning platform to manage and deliver the content of the curriculum and the e-training toolkit;
  4. Training 25 university staff to function as e-tutors.

 

In the long-term, the e-training toolkit for training e-tutors will contribute in training and supporting e-tutors. The joint Master programme is envisaged to offer greater access to teachers and other practitioners to be trained as ESD Leaders in their formal and/or non-formal settings.
