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 MEDEAnet project
From 2012 to 2014, the MEDEA Awards are supported by the Lifelong Programme of the European Commission through the MEDEAnet project.
This 3-year network project will help extend the reach of the MEDEA Awards and Media & Learning Conference and Community. The project will publish yearly country reports on the creation and sharing of knowledge about how media is used to support teaching and learning in different parts of Europe. Free workshops and webinars about media-based learning topics involving MEDEA Awards’ showcases will be organised in all partner countries Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Estonia, Germany, Greece and Romania.
