JOVITAL, Jordan opportunity for virtual innovative teaching and learning

JOVITAL offers Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in Jordan a chance to explore, implement, and disseminate state of the art academic practices to enhance teaching quality and improve learning outcomes.

A comprehensive capacity building programme will be implemented to facilitate intensive know-how transfer between the consortium members to address the problems of: outdated instructor-centered frontal teaching methods, limited physical academic mobility, and ineffective use of ICT in formal higher education in Jordan.

The specific objectives of JOVITAL are:

  1. Qualification of academic staff at Jordanian HEIs on modern pedagogical and didactical methodologies for innovative virtual teaching and learning settings;
  2. Support Jordanian HEIs in adopting and implementing effective ICT-based internationalisation at home activities and integrate Jordanian HEIs in a global network for “Virtual Mobility”;
  3. Open up higher education in Jordan to integrate disadvantaged groups including women, rural areas inhabitants and refugees in inclusive virtual classroom settings.
