Training Plan

The first step of UP2U’s training plan is to analyse the needs of our trainees by conducting a short survey among the participating schools, in order to collect data regarding high school teachers’ current levels of ICT competences. Data from this gap analysis will enable us to define specific needs-based objectives for the training process. These objectives will support the design and development of training materials as well as help us assess the success of the overall training plan.

Based on the gap analysis, the next steps of the training plan will focus on:
  • Building the training courses, by selecting appropriate technologies and media platforms for delivering them.
  • Defining the duration of each course separately.
  • Creating training material, informed by cross-cutting competences in the European DigiCompEdu Framework. Design of online training materials will be based on DigiComp guidelines.

UP2U training courses will also encourage teachers to become involved in the development of the UP2U toolkit and create a learning ecosystem where ideas for the project can be shared across schools and countries.

The Subject Matter Committee (SMC) acts as an oversight committee on the general training programme. In addition to permanent members, the SMC will also include national sub- committees which will have a few representatives each, who will advise the project regarding their particular schooling systems and pedagogical/teaching aspects.

Three categories of target audience are expected, according to the teachers’ attitude towards the new learning methodologies:
  • Constrained to changes, reluctant to trust new learning methodologies and technologies.
  • Moderately motivated to use and/or experiment with the above.
  • Very motivated to use and/or experiment with new learning methodologies and technologies.
