Train the Trainer workshops have been held in Danube University Krems during the second EUfolio project meeting. Trainers from all 7 partner countries were present and took active part in the training workshops prepared by the Cyprus Institute of Pedagogy (CPI).
Continuous Professional Development materials for trainers developed by CPI were used and evaluated in preparation for the pilot testing activities that will commence in January 2014.
Participants received training on Mahara platform, were introduced to the concepts of ePortfolios for formative assessment and developed their own ePortfolios. Trainers that participated in the workshops will plan the use of ePortfolios within their pilot schools and will take part in introductory activities for the pilot phase in January 2014.
It was important for the project Consortium that workshop participants had a clear understanding of what ePortfolio means and the process for the teacher and the learner. Therefore emphasis had been given on the process that the learner will go through when using an ePortfolio (e.g. criteria of selecting work, self-assessment, feedback and validation of work).
This face-to-face training seminar will be followed by series of self-directed online training activities.
