The European University of the Atlantic (UNEATLANTICO) will participate, together with the other partners of the Erasmus Plus DigitalTA project, on April 4 at 18:00 hours (CET) in the webinar “DigitalTA: Building a European model for teacher transition.”
Organized by the Association for Teacher Education in Europe (ATEE), a partner organization of the project, the event will be attended by Josep Alemany, DigitalTA project coordinator and teacher at UNEATLANTICO; Thomas Prola, Project Manager at FUNIBER; Rachel Lenihan, lecturer at the University of Limerick (UL) in Ireland; and Jiří Kropáč, researcher at the Palacký University of Olomouc in the Czech Republic.
The early research carried out during the first year of the project will be analyzed during the event.
We will first review the shared European experiences regarding the processes of initial and continuous practical teacher training. The report presented by the project partners aims to address the needs of educational challenges around the world, especially in transition, as well as to seek bridges on how to react to needs in initial preparation, transition, and cooperation among practicing teachers.
The speakers will also focus on another research project aimed at developing a harmonized European model of practical training to provide guidance and support to in-service teachers. The purpose of this report is to present the basis of the reflective model of online guidance and accompaniment for students and education professionals who are in the first years of their professional practice in primary and secondary schools. It is based on a pedagogical approach to meet the needs of teachers beginning their training, taking full advantage of the potential of information and communication technologies.
The event is free of charge. Those interested in accessing the program should register at the following link.
The project’s main objective is to improve the practical education of pre-service and in-service school teachers throughout the countries of the European Union, thereby reducing the number of school dropouts.
The project, led by the European University of the Atlantic (UNEATLANTICO), also counts on the collaboration of different European institutions: Artesis Plantijn University of Applied Sciences (AP), University of Limerick (UL), Univerzita Palackého v Olomouci de Olomouc, Uniwersytet Jana Kochanowskiego w Kielcach, the Segovia Teacher Training Center and the Swiętokrzyskie Centrum Doskonalenia Nauczycieli.
