Teaching, learning and professional development for ITE – open source resources

In 2017, IRIS Connect joined the “ITELab” Knowledge Alliance, funded by the European Commission’s Erasmus Plus Programme. Formed to address the need for training on the pedagogical use of ICT during initial teacher education (ITE), and bridge the gap between ICT and ongoing professional development, the project undertook an experiential and collaborative blended learning approach to enhancing pedagogy.

The European-wide project includes input from ITE and ICT providers (including IRIS Connect) from 6 countries (UK, Ireland, Germany, Italy, Portugal, and Norway) to co-create new ITE modules and a MOOC to make available as open source content.

During 2018, Module A and the MOOC were beta-piloted across the project partner universities and now ITELab is opening the invitation up to all teacher-training universities in Europe to participate in the spring 2019 pilots.


The MOOC syllabus and registration form is available below:

MOOC: Teaching in the 21st Century

More information on each of the modules is available in PDF form and clickable below:  

Module A: Teaching, Learning and Professional Development for Beginning Teachers

Module B: Designing for Learning

Module C: Working with Learners


To register your interest in the Modules, please email the ITELab project manager, Dorothy: dorothy.cassells@eun.org.
