Are you interested in developing coaching, digital competence and innovation mindset as a teacher or for your staff?
Participants at EfVET from the Netherlands, Italy and Turkey expressed interest in upcoming E-DECO teacher training courses. Apart from potential future training courses in each partner country (see partner list and contact details on the website), we will inform of the possibility to participate in a new E-DECO international teacher training course in 2016.
E-DECO tools have already been adopted into VET teacher training provision in all 5 Finnish teacher training programmes
Although E-DECO is a teacher training programme, anyone can freely download and use relevant tools from the E-DECO Learner Pack in EN-ES-FI-LT-NL. Training and supporting teachers in 3- 5 day courses with interspersed e-coaching is nonetheless optimal.
For any further information, please contact us.
E-DECO reached many European stakeholders in VET and Higher education at the annual EfVET Conference in Paphos, Cyprus. The project coordinator, Annarikka Martikainen from Haaga Helia Finland and Spanish-Basque partner Cherith Megaw from Politeknika Txorierri presented the project at two round tables attended by VET directors, teachers and coaches from Finland, the Netherlands, Hungary, Italy, Turkey, Denmark and the UK. Partipipants at the round table were able to sample two or three of the E-DECO tools designed to help teachers advance their skills and innovate their role in education, namely one coaching method called the Decision Balance, a short improvisation game to stimulate innovation and openness (Yes, and…) and the digital interactive game – P´s of Cake. The 3 strands of the E-DECO project – coaching development and the exploration of digital tools and innovation – all aim to support teachers be “edupreneurs,” and inspire and support students towards the same aptitudes and attitudes.
E-DECO results, the E-DECO game, the pilots, the trainer kit, all the learning material, reports etc. are ready to be published or partners are putting the finishing touches to them before releasing. The results of the project are found on the separate result sub-page. >>
The final partner meeting in Harderwjik, Nethrlands in June 2015 demonstrated the good work done since the project started. The Pilots were completed in Finland, Spain, Lithuania and Netherlands. The UK is getting ready by end of June 2015. The participation was from widely from different areas of education and varied in each country. In Finland the participant were inclined to support business start ups, in Netherlands they were future teachers still in teacher’s academy in Lithuania and Spain the participants came from the local networks of the partner and UK managed to support the teacher’s motivation of merging institutions.
