We are very sad that the proPIC project will be over at the end of August! It has been such a pleasure to be working with these great European colleagues for the last three years. During the 5th Transnational Partner Meeting on 02 July 2020 we had time to finalise our last output, the e-portfolio of the teacher educators. Further, we took some time to evaluate the project. This was a good opportunity for each of us to think back and reflect on his/her own development within this project. Last but not least we finished the meeting with an exciting online beer tasting! Great work everyone and we hope to see you all again very soon!
Due to the spread of the Corona Virus, the consortium will not be able to have a final meeting face-2-face. Thus, we have decided to have our last TPM online on 2 July 2020.
First of all, thank you to our Spanish partners who did a great job in organising the meeting! At the end of November 2019, during this fourth partner meeting, the consortium mainly developed an evaluation framework, discussed various student outputs and planned further dissemination activities, as well as future projects. All in all, it was a highly successful meeting, as management issues were discussed in short individual online meetings before this partner meeting. This gave us more time to talk about the outputs!
Meeting at the Högskolan i Boras in February 2019, the partners had three highly productive days, developing an innovative e-portfolio concept, discussing various assessment formats that include the use of mobile technologies, as well as developing possible assessment criteria that can be applied for innovative assessment formats. Next to working on the project outputs, the partners were absolutely impressed by the programme that was organised by our Swedish partners: a street art tour through the city, a guided tour through the Swedish School of Textiles including prosecco and delicious snacks, finishing off with a barbecue followed by a shuffle board session. Many thanks to everyone and we are very much looking forward to seeing you again at our next Partner Meeting in November 2019 in Barcelona!
From Monday (18 June 2018) until Wednesday (20 June 2018) the proPIC team met again at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne in the UK.
After a short overview of the development of the project as well as the general project management, the focus soon shifted towards the content. On the First day the partners presented each other the implementation of the developed study programme at their university.
The evening was spent at the riverside of Newcastle in a nice Italian restaurant.
On Tuesday the partners worked in international pairs to give feedback on the interactive tutorials produced by the different partner universities. In an open and very constructive discussion the content of the tutorials was adapted and the order of the tutorials was rearranged to fit to the study programme. After discussing the organization and the financing of the study week, the partners headed to Durham. Where Paul Seedhouse gave them a tour of the city as well as the cathedral.
After talking about the study week in more detail and the implementation of the ePortfolios in the project, Mareike Oesterle, Isabel Murillo Wilstermann and Azahara Cuesta García presented their PhDs.
It was a very productive meeting and great seeing everyone again. A big 'thank you' to our hosts in Newcastle - Paul Seedhouse and Elizabeth Hidson!
During the last days the kick off meeting took place at the University of Education Karlsruhe. For three days the international project team work on the development of the proPIC Europa project.
While at the beginning the focus was on the project management it soon shifted to the content of the project:
In the evenings the team enjoyed different social activities to get to know Karlsruhe as well as the German culture, regional foods and drinks.
