TEVAL- Evaluation Model for Teaching and Training Competencies

Institution: Univation Institut für Evaluation Dr. Beywl & Associates GmbH

Contact: Katja Harich

Objectives: The poster/presentation will be made in collaboration with the french project partner (CIEP, Centre international d'é´tudes pédagogiques, Alain Kokosowski).
The Leonardo da Vinci project TEVAL intents to contribute to the reflection and improvement of teaching competencies. The broad aims of the TEVAL project are:

  • Promoting a joint work of different educative subsystems for the development of a joint strategy for evaluation of training and teaching competences

  • Developing a set of common principles for evaluation and validation of teaching and training practice competences, adapted to different levels and contexts

  • Designing a general framework model for that evaluation, applicable and adaptable to all educators, whether they work in primary or secondary level or in the subsystem of vocational education or training

Description: Recently, changes in the field of teaching and training have led to a shift in the demands on teachers and trainers. Teachers and trainers, especially in the VET-sector, are becoming more and more organisers of learning environments; they have to network and collaborate with community members, parents and colleagues from other schools. Additionally, role changes include the use of new information and communication technologies.
In the first phase of the project, each partner (respectively from Portugal-IPB/ESEB, Germany -UNIVATION, France- CR2i, Estonia-Tallinn Pedagogical University, Greece-WEGRE England-ENTENTE) has been developing a national framework of the existing approaches for evaluating practice concerning teaching and training quality. These results have been published in a transnational report.
Secondly, the partnership found five domains of impact on common intervention. In each of these domains, key competences have been identified. The mastery of the whole key competences defines teachers' and trainers' professionalism.
In each national context the competence model and the evaluation approach have been discussed with relevant stakeholders. A survey has been carried out in each participating country.
Furthermore, an evaluation handbook and supporting materials for initial and continuing teacher training are going to be provided and disseminated.
The poster shows the referential of common competences, which is the guide-tool for the conception of the Personal Professional Profile, used in the evaluation process.
