Presentation of #teaching2030 at ICERI Seville

#teaching2030 was presented at the 2017 International Conference on Education, Research and Innovation (ICERI) that was held in Seville in November 2017. ICERI was an ideal platform to promote the project. Petra Hauptfeld from the University of Applied Sciences Burgenland opened the conference session ‘Professional development of teachers’ with her presentation ‘Reinventing educational careers in the future – how teachers will perform in the next decade’.

Promoting #teaching2030 at the University of Applied Sciences Burgenland

The University of Applied Sciences Burgenland has promoted the start of the project with various actions to make it visible to teachers, colleagues and stakeholders right from the beginning. You will find a description of the project on the research site:

In October 2017, a press release was published online, describing a student project that serves as a basis for #teaching2030. A group of students did research on the attitudes and skills that are necessary for teachers in the future. According to students’ findings, teachers should

  • be patient and have a good sense of humour
  • promote independent learning while providing guidance at the same time
  • always contextualize content
  • give students a chance to apply their theoretical knowledge in practice
  • give feedback to challenge students’ views and perceptions
  • organise excursions and (field) trips
  • use a variety of tools in their teaching
  • apply innovative teaching methods instead of traditional ones

Many thanks to the group for providing these results that will be used as a basis for #teaching2030.

Starting with #teaching2030 in Maribor

The University of Applied Sciences as coordinating institution presented the project at the kick-off meeting in Maribor, held from 28th to 30th September 2017. It took place at the University of Maribor and was organised by the Department of International Economics and Business. On the first day, the team discussed questions related to project management; on the second day, the consortium focused on how to structure and design the online course (cBook). Create mediadesign, a company specialized in e-learning technology development, provided the tools and templates for developing the content of the web-based training. On Saturday, the communication tools the project partners intended to use were tested. In the afternoon the Faculty organised a get-together in a relaxed atmosphere, concluding the meeting at a winery located in the beautiful surroundings of Maribor.
