At the second Transnational meeting of the e-Teach Project, held on January 30th-31st 2023 in Çanakkale, all partners were welcomed warmly by the host organization's representatives. Representatives from Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Canakkale Onsekiz Mart University, Baltic Education Technology Institute and University of Social Sciences (SAN) Poland attended the meeting in person. Representatives from University of Helsinki and Lucian Blaga University participated in the meeting online.
The meeting began with the presentation of the e-Teach Project meeting agenda for the 30 and 31st of January 2023. The partners then discussed the progress and next steps of the e-teach intellectual outputs, consisting of the Knowledge paper, e-Teach Modular Curriculum, Online Course (Open/digital education), Blended Training Workshops and Scenario-based Digital Pedagogy Teacher Guide for Learning/Teaching Practices. As the Knowledge paper and Modular Curriculum have been almost finalised, partners discussed mainly the details of the Online Course (Open/digital education), Blended Training Workshops and Scenario-based Digital Pedagogy Teacher Guide for Learning/Teaching Practices.
Participants agreed that the Online Course (Open/digital education) will consist of open educational materials that can be accessed anytime and in different languages.
In addition, each partner will organise Blended Training Workshops (Seminars) in their national language, which consist of several online sessions of about 2 hours including a few sessions in common among all participants, that will have English as the language of instruction. During the international sessions, language inclusivity will be ensured by allowing participants to select live captions in their native language. The open/digital education and blended training will be designed between February and August 2023, while their implementation will take place between September 2023 and February 2024. To ensure high-quality blended training, a pilot study will be implemented around April and May 2023 and the results from different countries will be analysed and compared.
Furthermore, participants discussed the details of the Scenario-based Digital Pedagogy Teacher Guide for Learning/Teaching Practices, which will consist of seven scenarios. The first one is the conceptualization of digital education, the second is phycology and guidance, the third is digital content development, the fourth is teachers’ pedagogical knowledge and skills, the fifth is emerging new technology and blended learning, the sixth one is effective hybrid and blended learning, the seventh is measurement and evaluation. After the presentation of a template about the teacher guide on CANVA, the responsibilities of the partners were distributed.
The first day of the meeting ended with a presentation on the dissemination activity and planning, where more clarity was shed on the dissemination plan and each partner’s responsibility in dissemination activities.
The second day of the meeting was dedicated to quality management and monitoring tools, and administrative and financial aspects. Moreover, partners made joint decisions regarding the follow-up actions and implementation plans of the project, as well as the locations and dates of the following transnational meetings.
Overall, the Transnational Project Meeting in Çanakkale was a great success, with representatives from all partner countries coming together to discuss the project and its progress. The meeting was a great opportunity for the partners to exchange ideas and experiences, and to plan for the future of the project.
