The maturity model includes criteria and instruments to assess the degree of maturity of b-learning and innovation of an HE institution. It includes a framework for change, based on progress markers. 6
  7. 7. [ Governmental and European strategies and frameworks for innovation  Institutional strategy and cultural changes / mindset  Pedagogical models and design for blended courses  New expertise needed and staff support  Student support  Including blended education in the quality framework of the university  Funding of innovation  Increased workload 7
  8. 8. [Positive factors for succeeding b-learning implementation are: the strong presence of digital technology at universities and digital skills of students and teachers; strong learning environments; good practices in b-learning; the experience with MOOCs; the need for enhancing quality for large student numbers; where applicable a strong institutional leadership. These positive factors are important for anchoring change processes. 8
  9. 9. [Negative factors are: academic culture not in favour of innovation; attitudes of students and staff towards online learning; leadership not engaged for innovation by b-learning; missing policies, strategies, concepts, frameworks; misconceptions on blended/online teaching; low awareness of innovative pedagogies; b-learning competences of staff not enough developed; no adequate solutions for the changing workload of staff; partial innovations only; no incentives for career development; no substantial budget; weak governmental strategies. The EMBED project will contribute to a deep change within the partnership and beyond. 9
