Learning Design for Flexible Education


Teachers’ digital competence has indisputably evolved throughout the COVID pandemic, and learning design has become more complex. There is a gap in effective learning in digitally-mediated contexts. The FLeD project aims to facilitate the design of effective flexible learning scenarios for Faculty. We seek to guide in applying the flipped method making the best use of pedagogies and digital technologies to prompt the sustained shift towards flexible education.We apply agile and design thinking methods for project management and work organisation. First, we generate and test resources to guide inclusive, digital, and flipped learning design. Second, we develop a digital tool for decision-making in flipped learning design. Finally, dissemination activities include publications, events, and virtual training to spread the knowledge developed on flipped learning for effective flexible education to a broad audience.The main results are: a flipped learning-based pattern with scaffolding to guide flexible, digital, and inclusive education; a playful and collaborative learning design experience through a digital tool for decision-making; virtual training on the FLeD tool and learning toolkit; open resources and Handbooks to sustain the practice and theory of effective and inclusive flipped learning for flexible education; and a network of knowledgeable people on flexible learning.
