The partners of the European project Erasmus + Digital TA (2022-25), led by the European University of the Atlantic in which the Iberoamerican University Foundation (FUNIBER) is a participant, will meet at the university campus located in Santander between September 27 and 30. The objective of this first face-to-face meeting is to share progress on the project, where they will establish and strengthen the bases of the project based on a framework of the different European contexts involved. Moreover, during these days, tasks will be distributed and quality indicators will be designed to ensure their proper development over the next three years.
The project, selected by the European Executive Agency for Education and Culture (EACEA) among the eleven best out of more than 50 submitted in the call for 2021, has a great relevance in the Cantabrian, national and European educational field as a proposal for the design and implementation of a digital resource open to all educational agents toward improving the transition of studies and practices of student teachers and new teachers. All of this is thanks to the creation of a learning community where they can find solutions and answers to the day-to-day teaching experiences.
Thus, representatives of the collaborating universities of Univerzita Palackého v Olomouci in Olomouc (Czech Republic), University of Limerick (Ireland), AP Hogeschool Antwerpen (Belgium), Uniwersytet Jana Kochanowskiego w Kielcach (Poland), the Centro de Formación del Profesorado de Segovia (Spain), the Fundación Universitaria Iberoamericana (FUNIBER), the Świętokrzyskie Centrum Doskonalenia Nauczycieli w Kielcach (Poland) and the Association of European Teachers (ATTEE), will visit the university campus and get to know the facilities.
These partners will make a presentation about the institution they represent and the role they play in the project and will also have the opportunity to share different ideas and proposals. For four days, meetings, workshops, and activities related to the project will take place, such as the one that will take place at the end of the meeting, in which the partners will talk about the teaching transition in their countries. The students attending will also be able to ask questions, with cultural activities promoting the excellence of Santander and Cantabria.
Professors Josep Alemany, Juan Luis Vidal, Raquel Vallines, Samuel Allende and the academic director of the degree in Primary Education, Dr. Laura García Valladares will all participant on behalf of the European University of the Atlantic. Students of this degree will have the opportunity to attend an activity for disseminating the teaching transition that will take place in the Assembly Hall of the University with the European partners, which will be broadcast live on the UNEATLANTICO and FUNIBER YouTube channels.
