The COMBLE project explored the questions “When is an institution (universities, further education, enterprises) ready for Blended Learning – what are the common challenges and solutions?” and “How can trainers design active and collaborative learning?” Educators can find and share over 100 learning activities in the main product of the project Methopedia (methopedia.eu)
Aim: To improve the quality of Blended Learning
Recently developed learning technologies based on collaboration and social interaction can improve the quality of learning. However, this potential will only unfold if institutions implement suitable methodologies and learning cultures, and if instructors become able to integrate active learning by choosing suitable activities.
One important step in supporting pedagogical innovations is to combine learning technologies with collaborative and learner-centred learning activities: group work, learning in projects, working on real problems or complex learning settings like tandem learning, open spaces, web quests, video casts or expert learning.
Training and education will be innovative and foster digital competence if it focuses on both ICT and methodological competences. Through the wiki based community Methopedia (www.methopedia.eu) we support the improvement of educator’s/trainer’s competences for interactive, elaborated and collaborative learning.
