RGSL joins InnovaEDU network (Development project within Nordplus framework) which brings together five innovation-oriented universities in the Nordic-Baltic region (University of Tartu, Uppsala University, Aarhus University, Riga Graduate School of Law and Norwegian University of Science and Technology) with extensive expertise in blended and online teaching environments. The purpose of the project is to a) facilitate the multi-level transfer of know-how and innovation in teaching methods and b) enhance the harmonization of practices among the partner universities.
The interdisciplinary network is built on the need to address the emerging trends in ICT and educational technology which reshaped the environment of learning; as well as the lack of comprehensive, open platform in the Nordic-Baltic region, providing unified approach for development of learning spaces at multiple levels. In this regard, the network relies on the pre-existing ties and successful cooperation of participating universities within the frameworks of European-wide networks and projects (Coimbra group, the U4 network, Erasmus+ mobility visits and previous Nordplus cooperation).
In order to achieve these goals, the members of the network will develop a seminar series based on three working packages: WP1 Digital; WP2 Flexible Learning Space and WP3 Pedagogical and Networking.
Network plans to produce common repository for sharing didactical material as well as templates, teaching aids, summaries of good practices in the realm of online and blended learning.
