The METHODS Project

METHODS is a European Erasmus+ project aimed to improve the quality of teaching and learning at the Partner Country universities through incorporating technological tools in consistence with pedagogical best practices and by building the capacity of the universities to evaluate, develop and design e-curricula to be available on an open accessible portal. To achieve this objective, the project will support establishing a national Center in both Jordan (in JU) and Palestine (in BZU) to be as a  hub for utilizing best practices in ICT in Higher Education in both Partner Countries . These Centers will facilitate establishing diverse clusters (pool of staff members from target discipline in Engineering and Science faculty with multimedia and educational specialists interested in a certain discipline) from Partner Country universities where an educational specialists will review the proposed learning material in order to ensure compatibility with the standards; and  multimedia designers who will design the interfaces, activities, presentation, layout and animation included in the e-curricula.

The specific objectives of METHODS are:

      Training and follow up with lecturers/professors on how to develop and share learning objects, as well as to collaborate with their e-courses on the portal.

      Establish a well-equipped national center in both Jordan and Palestine focused on modernization of higher education and moving toward knowledge-based economy.

      Create a hub of competences aimed to improve quality of teaching and learning by building the capacities of the partner Country universities to evaluate, develop and design e-curricula.

      Enhance the cooperation with EU partners through mutual visits to develop teaching to learning strategies and develop scalable sustainable solutions.

      Create a pool of experts and clusters of targeted disciplines (Engineering and Science) in this area.


The METHODS Network – a network of opportunities

The METHODS Network aims to open a wide range of opportunities:

  • To facilitate exchange of good practises between the members through the METHODS portal and twinning procedures in order to promote transfer of knowledge between its members;
  • To encourage the submission of common proposals and development of projects between the members of the network;
  • To assist in the establishment of METHODS best practices;


The METHODS benefits for its Network members

The METHODS Network members obtain numerous benefits to grow, share, learn, and modernise:

  • The chance to exchange good practises between the members through the METHODS portal and twinning procedures and to promote transfer of knowledge among its members;
  • To access a transnational forum of discussion in ICT in Higher Education;
  • To participate in common actions between the members of the METHODS Network, such as: seminars, submission of proposals and development of projects, submission of publications in scientific journals and scientific conferences;
  • To participate in training workshops to be held under the theme of ICT in Higher Education;
