The InDO project aims to make inclusive frameworks such as Understanding by Design and Differentiated Instruction more accessible to higher education teachers and trainers.
Through four main resources - an online course, a compendium of template activities, an app listing digital resources, and a policy recommendation document - we aim to empower educators to put technological solutions at the service of pedagogy and to enhance their teaching performance, thus optimising the relevance and effectiveness for educators across Europe.
The Online Curriculum introduces educators to Differentiated Instruction and will help lay the groundwork for future resources. The technical adaptation will be important to create an engaging, effective online learning experience.
It will be a comprehensive, user-friendly curriculum that allows educators from across Europe to access free, online learning on blended UbD and DI.
The Compendium of experiential laboratory for “Pedagogies for Innovative Classrooms” requires careful, European-wide research leading to a practical resource to guide educators to find the pedagogic strategies most suitable for their work.
The compendium will be published in a digital format and, It will challenge educators to broaden and deepen their understanding of what is possible in terms of innovation and creativity to address the teaching of new skills to diverse groups of individuals.
The InDO App will empower educators to know and adopt the Education 4.0 agenda for forward-thinking education that harnesses digital technology as a means to enable all students, from all backgrounds, to learn in the best way possible.
The final deliverable of the project is aimed at setting the basis for the integration of the blended UbD and DI into the current curricula, by providing guidelines for the adoption of approaches, tools and processes developed in the project lifetime so far. The Policy recommendation Report will therefore be a guidance document on how to use the project results.
