The University of the Highlands and Islands
federated rural university with 13 independent colleges and research centres and more than 70 local learning centres covering a vast area from the Shetland Islands in the north to Argyll in the south and including approximately 100 inhabited islands.
The university relies on technology to connect its partners and deliver its blended and online programmes. This is supported by the Educational Development Unit which plays a pivotal role in supporting the multiple pedagogic models.
The University of the Highlands and Islands is the pedagogical lead on this project. They are providing pedagogical expertise and working with project partners to develop content tailored to their individual master’s programmes.
They are also developing two pilot AToM modules for their Master's in Education and Master's in Leadership and Management degrees.
