We are one month away from hosting the International Teacher Educator Training in Athens, Greece. The event is being organized in the context of the SLIDEshow project and is largely based on the findings and results of its Intellectual Outputs and the experience gained from partners during the project implementation.
WHEN: 6-8 of November 2019
WHERE: Doukas School, Athens, Greece
WHO: SLIDEshow team and teachers and teacher educators from Belgium, Austria, Finland and Greece
The main topic of the event is Self-Regulated Learning (SRL), the theory behind it and most importantly how to transfer theory into practice, thus its name, "SRL in Action!". The main objectives, upon completion of the training, are for participants to have the motivation, knowledge, skills and tools to:
- support students’ self-regulated learning
- coach teacher colleagues to
- improve & personalize their SRL support
Another ERASMUS+ project will play a main role in the training, and that is the tMAIL project, and the application developed by the project, which trains teachers on how to support students’ Self-Regulated Learning. The app, as well as the teacher educator platform that comes with it, allows schools to further improve and personalize the way they support their students’ SRL.
Furthermore, the training aims to also attract participants from the following categories:
- pre-service teacher educators (incl. school mentors responsible for internships)
- in-service teacher educators
- school staff responsible for the professional development within the school
Upon completion of the training, participants, from the aforementioned categories, are expected to be able to replicate the training and its activities in their school with their educator colleagues and support them in the learning and implementation of data-driven SRL.
