European Maturity model for Blended EDucation

Project: Research

See relations at Aarhus University


The EMBED project aims at offering higher education institutions expertise and guidance by developing a conceptual framework and a European maturity model on blended education. The project responds to immediate needs in EU-countries, where blended teaching and learning is increasingly, but still slowly introduced. It is an answer on current challenges for universities: keeping educational quality with large students numbers and lower budgets per unit (low staff/student ratios), making education more adaptive, personalized and flexible to face issues of study progress and study success. In many cases, it is not built on recent concepts and theories on course design and hence this leads to less advantageous implementations.
In a strategic partnership of the European Association of Distance Teaching (EADTU), Delft University, University of Edinburgh, KU-Leuven, DCU and Aarhus university, the EMBED project brings together leading experts in blended education, building a multi-level maturity model for b-learning and a framework for change based on progress markers related to stakeholder-focused outcomes.
