Project outcomes include:

  • Transfer of innovation from the world leading institution (The Open UK) on lifelong learning and on preparing teachers to teach with ICT, and global perspectives from the International Council for Educational Media
  • A teacher training and lifelong learning framework
  • Face-to-face and online teacher training modules
  • An online portal with a community of teachers.

The modules will include instructional materials, learning environments and tools, and a teacher/trainer handbook. Reports will also be produced on the evaluation of the training implementation, as well as on the dissemination and exploitation of the results.

The short-term impact of these outcomes include to reach out to at least 500 teachers through workshops, trainings, and conferences.

The long-term impact will be to reach out to thousands of students and to advance the quality of teachers competencies and the overall quality of education offered to EU citizens. Furthermore, the integration and extension of the transfer of innovation from partners’ previous projects will enable us to create a dynamic and robust framework that will empower Cyprus and Europe to become a leader in trainer and teacher training, as well as online and blended learning, with an emphasis on lifelong learning.
