The European project Erasmus + DigitalTA (2022-25), led by the European University of the Atlantic has been invited to speak at the European Ministerial Conference “Embedding European perspectives in teacher development”, which was held on March 3 in person and online. The project (2022-2025), selected among eleven projects submitted in the first European call “Teacher Academies” was presented last week in an online event promoted by the European Commission together with two other projects approved in the Teacher Academies 2021 call. The conference focused specifically on the European mobility of teachers and future teachers and, more generally, on the emergence of a European teacher community centered on the example of the initiative proposed by the European Commission with the first Erasmus + teacher academies. UNEATLANTICO participated online in the event by broadcasting a video presentation prepared by the European Projects Coordinator, Thomas Prola, on behalf of the rector of UNEATLANTICO, Rubén Calderón. The project (2022-2025) aims at improving the practical training of student teachers and young school teachers in EU countries, reducing professional attrition, at the time of transition between learning to teach and teaching to learn. Led by UNEATLANTICO, it counts with scientific and technological teams from FUNIBER, Jan Kochanowski University (Poland), University of Limerick (Ireland), and Palacky University Olomouc (Czech Republic). It also has the inclusion in the working team of the continuing education institutes of the Świętokrzyskie Centrum Doskonalenia Nauczycieli -ŚCDN- (Poland) and the Center for Teacher Training and Educational Innovation of Segovia (CFIE), as well as partner institutions such as the Association for Teacher Education in Europe (ATEE), among others.
