Logical Framework Matrix - LFM

Wider Objective

  • Enhance capacity of higher education teaching and learning in GE and IL by enhancing learning/teaching by creating and implementing formative CATs (course assessment tools)​

  • Align course assessment  and learning outcomes using CATS​

Specific Project Objective

  1. To modernise CATs for previous Tempus/Erasmus+ funded courses in IL and GE by sharing ASSETS EU experts best practices.

  2.  To create CAT specialists using trainer the trainers workshops, who will mentor other faculty outside consortium

  3.  To pilot CATS in 2-4 courses in each IL and GE HEI in line with best EU practices.

  4.  To disseminate at institutional, national and international level best CAT practices observed for sustainablity and exploitation beyond the project.

Indicators of Progress

  • Partner country HEIs embed CATs throughout selected programmes

Indicators of Progress

  1. The number of CATs developed for implementation in previous Tempus/ Erasmus+ courses

  2. Number of specialists (~4 per HEI) and teachers/professors trained (~10 per HEI) in CATs

  3. CATS implemented in at least 2-4 courses at each IL and GE HEI. Total foreseen min. 16 max 32 courses.

  4. Implementation of CATs in other courses in ASSET. CATs become a permanent part of curricula at ASSET HEIs.

How Indicators will be measured

  • Government (CHE&MOE) and project based information related to renewed programs

  • Feedback on validated assessment tools from student participants, course coordinators, EU experts and other appropriate stakeholders

How Indicators will be measured

  1. CAT teaching manuals disseminated to ASSET members via online platform

  2.  Participation lists, project documentation

  3. Registration data, lists of piloted courses and CATs. Feedback from students, teachers and staff and other appropriate stakeholders

  4. Data from ASSET HEI administration about other courses, registration at national and international conferences,  Number of entries to the online platform.  Feedback or evaluation held by EU experts

 

Assumptions & Risks

  1. Institutions will not allow staff time to engage with the project and to promote these actions.

  2. Faculty outside consortium not willing to participate in mentoring sessions.

  3. Difficulty to change perceptions and attitudes to teaching paradigms as well as technological limitations of facutly. Lack of student cooperation.  

  4. Lack of interest outside of ASSET. Difficulty in adaption of CATS at HEI outside IL & GE
