This project will directly contribute to the enhancement of digital learning and teaching in HEIs and the development of advanced digital skills in our students so that they are better prepared to contribute to the digital transformation of society.
To achieve this, we will create a suite of training resources that can be used by the following groups.
– By Higher Education Providers to develop their pedagogic approach for the implementation of Blockchain technology
– By business, management and economics students to become cognisant of how BC works and its application to business today
– Materials will be rolled out across a number of Higher Education Institutes and can be adapted as needed to inform, update and bolster the existing syllabus.
The creation of three new training materials will be the first results delivered by the project.
Firstly, the Generation Blockchain Audit & Framework will showcase the application of Blockchain education in practice across Europe within HEIs, highlighting areas where BC could easily be utilised and outlining a framework on how lecturers can best engage BC education in a meaningful way
Secondly, the Inverted Learning Open Education Resources (OERs) is designed for use by HEI business educators in small groups or seminar style classes, these resources will empower educators in their application of blockchain education.
Finally, the Generation Blockchain Online Course will be a multilingual, interactive learning course in which business, economics, management, and other interested students can access block chain training directly in a flexible, autonomous manner.
We look forward to developing these innovative resources and making substantial impact in the application of blockchain within higher education institutions
