Work Packages & Deliverables List


Title: Management and Coordination


The objectives of this WP can be summarized as follows:

  • Effective and concerted project implementation that will ensure a) that the project objectives are reached, managed and disseminated in a coordinated and coherent manner, along with all technical activities and legal aspects and b) efficient management of time & resource allocation at consortium level and coordination of the Work Packages.
  • Management of the project’s external relations, with EACEA and stakeholders.
  • Ensure external input from actors in the field.
  • Risk management and contingency planning.

Project implementation will be supervised by a management board. The management board will collaborate closely with the coordinator and the quality assurance committee (see WP6). All partners participate in the meetings and report regarding the project progress and possible issues that may arise.

Title: Needs assessment, ECVET strategy and VLE specifications


WP2 is the driver work package that will define the starting point for the forthcoming WPs and their tasks. It delivers a detailed report on the current situation in the participating countries, a second report on the specification of the training and certification needs of the target groups and a third report on the specification of requirements for the ALdia platform and content.



Supporting students with disability in HE and VET: a needs analysis

Title: Development of the training, assessment and accreditation


After having specified the training needs of the target users, the consortium is going to develop the training programmes and assessment methodology for each target group. This WP is central to the project implementation as it will deliver the major project results:

  • Eight training modules,
  • Eight self-assessment tests
  • Thirty-two peer-assessment assignments
  • One final exam

The training modules will be based on the findings of WP2 to develop innovative and flexible techniques that respond to specific education needs and promote inclusive learning and equality.
The programme will abide by the European Qualifications Framework for lifelong learning (EQF) and the European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET) standards.

Title: Development of the ALdia virtual learning environment


The ALdia virtual environment will be developed based on the specifications of the ALdia Virtual Learning Environment of WP2 (R2.4.). The ALdia VLE will create an accessible Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) that will contain the teaching and assessment material developed in WP3. It will also contain a Virtual Community space and access to assistive technology freeware tools, categorized per disability.
In order to ensure user acceptance, the ALdia VLE will be assessed by the focus group in three design meetings that will take place in each of the consortium countries. The ALdia VLE will be linked to the ALdia website.

Title: Course delivery and pilot-testing


The main objectives of WP5 are the delivery, pilot-testing, assessment and review of the trainee programme in Italy, Greece and Spain. The training and assessment material developed in WP3 will be utilized and revised. At the end of this WP, it is expected that 500 education professionals from the HE and VET sectors will be trained.



Toolkit for the evaluation of ALdia training and deployment

Title: Quality Assurance


Quality shall be assured by i) a Quality Assurance Committee that will be in charge of approving all ALdia public documents and other outputs, ii) a Quality Assurance Plan, that will systematize all quality assurance, monitoring and evaluation activities, iii) a quality control process that ensures the continuous quality control.

Title: Evaluation


The major goal of the evaluation WP is to collect data to improve the project and to ensure that it meets the proposed goals and achieves the outcomes. Evaluation is going to take place throughout project implementation and it will be both internal and external.

Title: Dissemination and exploitation


Dissemination will be a targeted, systematic process that will not be left for the end of the project. It aims to:

  • Identify and target policy-makers at different geographical levels (local, regional, national, European).
  • Disseminate information on the project and especially the ALdia MOOC to the widest audience possible through targeted actions.
  • Use the knowledge from this project to promote learning environments that foster equity and inclusion, especially through actions targeted to decision-makers.

Exploitation will:

  • ensure sustainability of the major project’s results through the appropriate exploitation planning,
  • identify obstacles which might prevent from achieving a successful dissemination and exploitation to stakeholders, particularly decision-makers,
  • continuous adjustment of the training design in order to fit with both new assistive technology and new challenges in disabled students’ learning needs.
  • ensure the evolution of the ALdia virtual community, after the end of the project, with the involvement of policy makers, end-users, disabled students and their families/carers and other stakeholders.
