TransACTION is a project on Media and Learning Design for European Higher Education, it brings together partners from Germany, Netherlands, Spain and Belgium who are involved in activities and projects in the field of media based learning. The overall objective is to develop and up-scale effective media-based learning strategies and resources in Higher Education. The TransACTION team will develop a series of tangible methods, tools and resources aimed at supporting academic teaching staff and students in using, adapting, designing, and applying multimedia teaching formats, defining a co-creation framework for media design and production, supporting service staff within the universities in designing, developing, and producing scientifically sound innovative concepts and promoting media formats within the European HE researcher and practitioner community.

The project aimed at supporting the development of a common European interest area in the field of research, innovation, and production of media for learning in Higher Education.

TransACTION addresses teaching and learning support and service centres in universities, lecturers and teaching staff, technical and support staff, educational technologists, innovation specialists, audio-visual staff and others in universities involved in multimedia design and production.
