Thomas Prola, Project Manager at FUNIBER, spoke on May 9 at the Teaching Conference “Teaching collaboration in the processes of innovation and improvement of university teaching” organized by the Department of Didactics and Educational Organization (DOE) of the University of Barcelona (UB) to publicize the Erasmus Plus DigitalTA project among teachers of the Spanish institution. The professor and researcher explained the latest advances of the European initiative, led by the Universidad Europea del Atlántico (European University of the Atlantic) (UNEATLANTICO). The day also included the participation of several teachers from the department who presented various innovative experiences based on cooperation among the teaching staff. Also present at the session was the Institute for Professional Development (IDP-ICE) of the University of Barcelona, a center of the institution at the service of the professional development of the different groups of the educational world, in all its dimensions and tasks. The Erasmus Plus DigitalTA project (2022-2025) aims to improve the practical education of teacher training students and young teachers in European Union countries, reducing professional attrition when transitioning between learning to teach and teaching to learn. The project proposes the development and validation of a European approach based on a digital platform for the support of the teaching practice to facilitate the transition from theory to practice.
