Invitation to EMBED Maturity Model Launch and Workshop in Edinburgh

The formal launch of the Maturity Model for Blended Education, developed as part of the EMBED project, will take place 2nd September at the University of Edinburgh immediately prior to the ALT Conference. This free event involves a number of speakers who will share different perspectives on blended education in the wider context of the maturity model. Members of the EMBED project team from partner institutions (Delft University of Technology, KU Leuven, University of Edinburgh, Dublin City University, Aarhus University and TAMK) will also be present to discuss both the development and implementation of the Maturity Model for Blended Education. This model includes all levels of an institution: the design of blended courses, organisational aspects such as staff support, training and institutional leadership, as well as policy development and strategies.
