Description of activities carried out:

LIT was represented at the kick-off meeting and the materials presented and discussed were brought back to the Institute to start the work for the project.
A team of researchers was agreed and the contract and letters of employment were sent to LIT management. Eventually the Human Resources/Finance Management agreed and confirmed the employment contracts for the project.
The researchers were briefed on the work to be done for the Intellectual Output 1.
The project brochure was printed and prepared for distribution.
Team meetings were called to plan the production of the videos for Intellectual Output 1.
The topics for the videos were ordered according to the voting of the other partners. A plan was made to get the work back on track.
Financial forms and time cards were agreed with LIT management. Researchers were met to explain how the system works.
A Microsoft Team page was set up for the research team. All documentation and videos for each topic are in a central repository there. A template for scripts was distributed and assistance with filming was provided.
Uploads to the project portal were completed as each video/script was finalised. Communication with other partners was on-going.
Researchers were supported in compilation of material.
There was participation in the virtual transnational meeting and the discussions about the work in progress and future activities.
Researchers were briefed on the creation of teaching resources and these were trialled using wordwall and edpuzzle. Materials were uploaded to the project portal.
Another transnational meeting was attended and the first draft of the guidelines was reviewed.
Dissemination activities continued and another associate partner was gained.
Work in progress updates were completed.
Continued communication with researchers and project partners. Submission of financial claims. Participation in on-line conversations.
