Media and Learning Association

Partners in the EFE project were recently hosted by project partner UCLL in Leuven for the second partner meeting which tok place on 28-29 June 2018. The focus of discussion was the matrix of methods that have been developed by the partners and which form the basis for the testing that will take place in the coming months. The project website will also be launched shortly. Most of the work of the Media & learning Association to date has been to put forward methods that rely largely on the use of video including lecture capture, flipped classroom and documentary making.
