Title Role Description Start date End date
DALDIS - Digital Assessment for Learning informed by Data to motivate and incentivise students Principal Investigator The DALDIS project comprising 8 partners addresses open access e-assessment for learning through the application and dissemination of innovative assessment for learning techniques which are established in different curriculum contexts and then tested in schools across 6 European countries. The project's key objective is to evaluate 'assessment for learning' (AFL) informed by feedback using digital technology in years 5 through 9 with a focus on Science teaching (Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Earth Sciences) and modern foreign language (MFL) through the teaching of English and French. 01/01/2019 31/12/2022
Mobile Intercultural Cooperative Learning Principal Investigator The MICOOL Project involved seven institutions in six European countries to examine and research how innovative mobile devices change teaching and learning in the 21st Century classroom, and to devise and provide training for teachers working with this technology. The project comprised organisations from four Erasmus+ programme countries – Ireland, Germany, Poland and Portugal – and two partner countries – Switzerland and Montenegro. Collectively the project partners produced 6 intellectual outputs involving classroom app reviews, lesson plans, face to face and online training courses for teachers, an e-book and research publications - all available from the MICOOL website (www.micool.org.). 01/09/2015 31/08/2017
