The ICT Integration short course for lecturers in higher education, utilises a blended learning model, with participants attending a three-day face-to-face session, followed by immediate implementation of this learning in practice and online or digital learning sessions. The face-to-face component introduces participants to integration and pedagogical knowledge, develops awareness of 21st century skills in order to integrate ICTs in teaching, and equips participants to use these tools in innovative ways to foster 21st century skills. Participants create ePortfolios, develop pedagogical learning tools and collaborate with colleagues to create learning designs which can be immediately implemented in their classrooms after the face-to-face contact sessions.
