Project Summary

BL_TEAE intends to support teacher educators’ professional and learning development through a Blended lLearning (BL) based on innovative constructivist theories. The BL course aim to build a European and Asian countries collaborative community (four EU Member countries – France, Belgium, Danmark, Estonia and four Asiatic countries – Malaysia, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Pakistan) capable to reflect on teaching trainers practices with the support of ePortfolio and Video as reflective tools. The direct aim is to improve teacher educators’ skills, with direct and indirect implication on quality of teacher educators’ skills. In this way teacher educators will be able to prepare future teachers on the assumption of multiple and changing roles in their belonging community. Indeed, the need to improve teaching practices is a common element in all selected partners. Specifically for Asiatic partners, despite the different situations, the quality of the teacher education needs improvement, in particular with the introduction of innovative strategies and practices. For this purpose we consider valuable to provide and to equip teacher educators with innovative teaching practices. The use of technologies to support teaching educators skills also lead to support innovation in teacher educator professional development. The project will be realized in close cooperation with all partners. All partners have been considered in terms of complementarity of operational expertise. Main activities in 8WP: define the technological and pedagogical need; design the BL course with online and face-to face training; build and animate the reflective community through the use of ePortfolio, video and online discussion; sharing scenarios about teaching practices; work on a curriculum design for teacher training; pilot the implementation of draft curriculum and the introduction of innovative practices.
