Teaching Online Competences: Debate in a Post Confinement Scenario 2020NAP webinarsVirtual Events

EDEN NAP webinar


Registered webinar participants will be awarded by EDEN open badges.


In recent months teachers needed to perform their activities online without proper training. They had to perform their duties in an unknown scenario for most of them. This fact and the already existing need of a teacher online reference framework motivate the need to discuss a set of teaching online requirements. A proposal already discussed by the EDEN Executive Committee will be presented followed by experiences learned. The proposal is based on a CALOHEE publication “Guidelines and Reference Points for the Design and Delivery of Degree Programmes in Teacher Education” by Julia M. González Ferreras and Maria Yarosh. A set of competencies required to teach online for level 6 of the EQF will be presented in terms of descriptors. The debate of the webinar is expected to be useful to tune the future terms of reference and to learn from recent experiences of shifting to online mode.
