METIS

WP1: Project Management

D1.2 Project Management Plan
The main goal of this document is to devise and to make explicit a project management plan aimed at fostering a smooth and productive functioning of the METIS consortium along the project lifespan. More specifically, this deliverable tries to ground the overall project vision by: detailing the project work plan; setting up communication mechanisms among the partners; clarifying roles and responsibilities within the consortium; and, defining quality and risk assessment procedures.


WP2: Design and development of ILDE: Integrated Learning Design Environment

D2.1 Report 1 on meetings with stakeholders: early feedback on ILDE requirements
This report describes the vision of the METIS project for the Integrated Learning Design Environment (ILDE) and collects early feedback from the consortium user groups (Adult Education – Agora, ES, Vocational Training – KEK Eurotraining, GR, Higher Education – OU, UK). The feedback serves to refine the vision and identify user requirements shaping the ILDE Roadmap and the priority requirements to be supported in the first release of the ILDE.

D2.2: ILDE software
D2.2 is the software deliverable of ILDE that can be installed by any interested party, thus creating a teacher community with integrated learning design tools and interfaces for the direct implementation of the designs in Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs). This document “accompanies” the software deliverable describing the software components of the ILDE, including the links to the software and to their open source licences. ILDE menu options are available in the consortium languages (EN, ES, CAT, GR, IT, GE).

D2.3: ILDE documentation
The METIS "Integrated Learning Design Environment" (ILDE) is an open source software platform that supports cooperation within a "learning design" community in which its members share and co-create multiple types of learning design solutions (LdS) covering the complete lifecycle: from conceptualizing, to authoring, and implementing. The documentation includes three different types of manuals, targeting different users (ILDE users, ILDE administrators, tool/VLE integrators). The manuals are extensions of the previously existing manuals from the tools integrated.

 

WP3: Design and development of teacher training workshops on learning design

D3.1 Report 2 on meetings with user groups: Early feedback on candidate best practices for teacher training on learning design
This report summarises the initial phase of research conducted to support the design of the METIS workshops. The aims of this research are: (1) to identify the constraints and requirements emerging from the specifics of the contexts in which they would be run, and the aspirations of the prospective participants and organising bodies and (2) to collate, compare and evaluate examples of similar workshops from the past which could inform the design of our workshop.

D3.2: Draft of pilot workshop
This deliverable represents the analysis of best practices and workshop design from the first cycle of the METIS project methodology. Alongside this report a prototype is provided to allow access to the package of resources representing a workshop structure developed from the preliminary analysis of best practices in teacher training reported in Deliverable D3.1. Section ‎2 provides an account of the review of best practices, the process, current status and outcomes, and plans for the future. It also lists risks and challenges and implications to and from WP 2 and 4. You can leave your comments on the deliverable here.

D3.3: Pilot workshops: workshops for different educational levels
This deliverable presents three workshop structures across higher education (OU), adult training (Agora) and vocational training (KEK). In each case the workshops are developed from the meta-design that was included in Deliverable D3.2 and has been updated to reflect use.

D3.4: Final workshops packages: workshops for different educational levels and education contexts
This deliverable includes a meta-design for the workshop packages, and a description of the rationale and pedagogical methodology on which the meta-design is based; guidance for instantiating the meta-design in different contexts; a catalogue of three example workshop packages based on the meta-design. D3.4 and the workshop packages are publicly available for viewing or download in 6 languages (EN,CA, DE, EL, ES, IT) on the ILDE (http://ilde.upf.edu/v/ijf) and via Slideshare.



WP4: Workshop running and analysis

D4.1 Report on the pilot workshops and LD enactment
This document describes the first round of METIS workshops in terms of their organisation and events. It does not seek to evaluate the workshops and enactments – evaluation is the subject of deliverable D5.2. As an overview, sections 2 to 4 of this document describe the planning, organisation and running of the first round of METIS workshops (November-December 2013), while sections 5 to 7 describe participants’ subsequent enactments (January-April 2014).

D4.2: Report on the pilot workshops and LD enactment (Round 2)
This deliverable deals with the second round of workshops and enactments, in which four METIS partners ran workshops (some split over several days) and encouraged some participants to continue with enactment. Three educational sectors are targeted by METIS: adult education (Agora & UVa), vocational training (KEK Eurotraining) and university education (Open University, UK & UVa).

 

WP5: Evaluation

D5.1 Assessment plan
The main purpose of this document is to describe the preliminary plan for the evaluation of the project. This is the first deliverable produced within WP5, which aims to help METIS in reaching its objectives, by carrying out an internal, ongoing evaluation of the two main outcomes (the ILDE and the workshop package), in order to fine tune and improve them.

D5.2 Report on first formative evaluation round
The present document (D5.2) reports on the first formative evaluation round, consisting of the development of the evaluation tools, carried out between month 5 and month 10 (August 2013), their use to gather data between month 11 (September 2013) and month 17 (March 2014) and the analysis of the data collected. Main outcomes of this deliverable are thus the results of this evaluation process, which highlights the workshops package to be very well accepted by participants, even if some tuning to the format is still needed.

D5.3: Report on second formative evaluation round
This document, similarly to D5.2 (Pozzi et al., 2014), recalls the outcomes of the previous phases of work, summarizes the description of the evaluation methods and tools, discusses their tuning for this round based on feedback received from the first round, and provides the analysis of the gathered data, as well as the discussion about the main lessons learnt. The data concern both the workshops and the ILDE. The workshop data are provided and discussed around the different organising institutions while the data about the ILDE are provided and discussed by target sector, in order to highlight possible differences.

D5.4: Final evaluation report
This document provides the most salient points of the work carried out in WP5, which is the work package devoted to evaluation, and tries to do so for a reader who hasn’t necessarily read the previous deliverables. To this end, it briefly describes the methodology adopted and the indicators chosen to evaluate the two main METIS outcomes: the workshop package and the ILDE. It then describes the two rounds of evaluation carried out, their main results and how they have been used in order to gradually improve both the workshops and the ILDE, up to the final version of both.


WP6: Dissemination & sustainability

D6.1 Dissemination Plan
The main purpose of this document is to provide a detailed explanation of the strategy for dissemination that must be followed by all partners and the dissemination activities that must be implemented during the lifecycle of the project.

D6.2 Online Newsletter
The online newsletters of the METIS project represent the contribution of all project partners. They include news-items related to the project and the activities of each organisation-partner of the project. Each online newsletter is distributed via e-mail to the project’s contact list, as a dissemination activity.

First Newsletter
Second Newsletter
Third Newsletter
Fourth Newsletter
Fifth Newsletter

D6.3 Leaflet
This leaflet was designed during the METIS project, in order to be used for the dissemination of the project. It includes a brief description of the Integrated Learning Design Environment (ILDE) and the Learning Design Workshops of the METIS project.

D6.5: Sustainability & Exploitation Plan
The objective of this document is to present the various sustainability and exploitation possibilities for the METIS project. These activities spread the results among the internal and external communities to ensure sustainability after the official end of the project. The Sustainability Strategy pins down the main activities that will ensure sustainability. Finally, this document aims to create a common view for all METIS partners of these sustainability and exploitation activities. It states how the outcomes should be promoted to support the adoption and use of the products in different academic, educational, and commercial environments.
