Build a Pool of Creative xLOBs Designers
It became clear that any further research and development in new learning paradigms and learning innovation requires the creation of local talent and expertise. A series of projects in professional development targeting University faculty members, educational specialists, ministry supervisors and schoolteachers were designed and implemented. The programs integrated the entire learning and teaching life cycle: curriculum design, research and development, piloting, multiple reviews (by peers, students, specialists, etc.). Outstanding graduates of these projects would form the backbone for the xLOBs development team in the following years.
