The partners of the Erasmus + Digital TA (2022-25) project held a virtual meeting the 24th of October, 2022. The project is led by the European University of the Atlantic (UNEATLANTICO), and is partnered with multiple European academic institutions, including FUNIBER.
In addition to members of FUNIBER and UNEATLANTICO, representatives from the University of Limerick (Ireland), AP Hogeschool Antwerpen (Belgium), Uniwersytet Jana Kochanowskiego w Kielcach (Poland), Centro de Formación del Profesorado de Segovia (Spain) and Univerzita Palackého v Olomouci in Olomouc (Czech Republic) were in attendance.
The partners discussed the approval of the new logo as well as plans for a newly designed website. They also discussed internal policies surrounding the dissemination plan, including the use of key words and phrases.
The Digital TA project was selected by the European Executive Agency for Education and Culture (EACEA) in Brussels as one of the eleven best projects in 2021, out of a list of more than 50.
This is the only project of its kind led by a Spanish university, which seeks to respond to the European concern to improve the quality of teachers and professors throughout the community through initiatives such as this project, which allows collaboration and relationships between different institutions and countries, providing feedback to create a digital environment in which future teachers, novice teachers and experienced teachers who mentor them will improve their skills based on shared experiences.
The first meeting was held in August of this year. Last month, the kickoff meeting for Digital TA was held at a campus in Santander. This marked the first face-to-face meeting for a project that will last until 2025.
In early September, several project partners held a webinar focused on the importance of improving professional teacher training and the quality of education.
