Unless teachers acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to reduce possible barriers to online learning, its potential will remain unfulfilled
The three central aims of this project are to build teachers’ capacity to apply Universal Learning Design (UDL) principles to implement inclusive instruction, implement small interventions early and in time to prevent dropout, and design and deliver optimal hybrid instruction that finds a flexible balance which utilizes the relative strengths of different delivery modes.

The SOULSS project (Scaffolding Online University Learning: Support Systems) aims to provide needs-based training to tertiary level teachers to help them move forward from the “emergency remote teaching” to the next stages on the road to the digital transformation of Higher Education Institutions. To achieve this goal, the project’s main objective is to build tertiary level teachers’ capacity to “think like an expert instructional designer” and progress towards optimal online teaching and learning. The project will provide among others a multiple-tool learning platform and a training course kit consisting of five mutually reinforcing units.

The project is implemented by a consortium of seven partners from six countries.
