Flying Start is a collaborative project between over 40 Schools or departments at the University of Leeds (UK) created in 2012. It consists of a website with student and staff videos, interactive activities as well as social media channels, where information to help new undergraduate students manage the challenging transition from school or college to university education is uploaded in stages. The aim of the resource is to help students gain a clear understanding of the importance of academic skills so they arrive at Leeds prepared for study.
About the MEDEA2020 Project
MEDEA2020 Project logo
The MEDEA Organising Committee submitted a proposal to the European Commission's Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP), Key Activity 4 (Dissemination and exploitation of results of the programme) which was approved in 2010. This proposal for a project entitled "MEDEA2020" builds on and further exploits the work of the MEDEA Awards. MEDEA2020 will expand the reach of the awards to include Italian, Spanish and Polish speaking practitioners. MEDEA2020 will also organise a series of workshops in educational media production in France, Italy, Spain, Poland and Ireland. Finally the new project will support the organisation of an annual large international conference on Media & Learning.
