Teaching and training materials – online catalogue

The I_TEM project utilized and can recommend a number of teaching and training materials – exercises, background information texts to be provided by e-learning, but also some simple media-based prompts for thought that have shown didactic value in the I_TEM pilot trainings.

This catalogue amends what is available in the teaching and training materials chapter of the final project result document by providing additional media, either as web links or as open educational resources. We provide download links for materials like slides, which are not practical to distribute in the print-focused result document itself, even if used in its PDF version, and collect relevant links for non-OER-reference materials in overview form.

Beyond the materials for the exercises and educational units named in the project result document, we also provide additional materials that training staff in the project found useful, even if it is not directly embedded in one of the described units. These are mostly picture material or presentations which are self-evident in their content, and thus a further description for these materials outside of the defined units is not provided. We still hope that adaptors of the I_TEM materials may find it useful.
