WP2: Dissemination and exploitation

Workpackage 2

Aim: to ensure that our target users and wider communities are aware of our work and that the results of the project are exploited both during and after its lifetime. The WP runs throughout the project and is premised on two-way communication with user groups and educational communities in all partner states. A detailed dissemination plan outlining key dissemination milestones as well as a sustainability plan (see section C1.4) will be agreed at the first project meeting.

Awareness of results will be achieved by using different media (including social media), a programme of informal and formal presentations and a final international conference. A Ning (social website) will be used to allow regular, immediate dissemination and discussion of progress and results, with Twitter and other social networks used to ensure wide distribution of contributions. We will hold a series of interactive international webinars, again to encourage dialogue with the wider community. We will formally publish key findings nationally and internationally and will hold a final conference (see D2.6).

To ensure exploitation of the results we have ensured the consortium includes user representatives (see WP6). Continual interaction with these and our wider networks of educators will inform the development of the tools produced in WPs 4 and 5 and, in WP6, will produce exemplar learning materials. We will use our contacts with Open Educational Resource (OER) groups to make these available in national and international repositories, ensuring sustainability of these resources beyond the project. We will also release the tools as beta prototypes as they are developed to encourage early use and feedback. 

Our dissemination activities will make full use of the extensive national and international contacts held by partners, including disciplinary subject centres, national and international learning technology and teaching groups, professional bodies, industry contacts and employer groups.
