Project Title: LEAP – Learn, Engage, Apply and Perform
Project Code: 2017-1-UK01-KA202-036522
Total Cost: 342 038€
Funding: 342 038€
The LEAP project intends to create a ‘step change’ in the use of e-Portfolios as process-based pedagogical tool to improve learner and VET provider performance. It will exploit Digital Badges including open digital badges to create an engaging learning process leading to improved performance by learners and teacher/trainers.
During the time of implementation of LEAP the following outputs will be delivered:
The LEAP e-Portfolio
A flexible, but structured tool designed to facilitate the collaborative in-teraction between learners and teacher/trainers and between teacher/trainers and moderators; and to promote learner independence, the use of differentiated learner support, learning and assessment.
LEAP e-Portfolio and Good Practice Handbook
A series of training curricula and VET courses that will make use of the LEAP e-Portfolio. The Handbook will allow the lessons and experience of partners, teachers/trainers and learners to be transferred to other stakeholders interested in exploiting the use of digital open badges within an e-Portfolio such as LEAP.
Policy Report: Taking the LEAP
A strategic document with recommendations for the use of a learner-centred pedagogical process model incorporating open digital badges within e-Portfolios in the delivery of VET courses and how it can sup-port and complement other approaches to VET delivery (e.g. blended learning, use of VLEs, the flipped classroom and traditional classroom based activities).
