To empower teaching and administrative staff from CRED4TEACH partner institutions in Albania, Montenegro, and Ukraine to design, develop, and validate MOOC-based micro-credentials for teacher professional development, European partners will design and deliver training sessions to selected staff members. Two different training activities are envisaged:
- Training Towards Becoming a MOOC Designer: Developed by the lead partner, Anadolu University, this training will be delivered in a blended mode to at least 24 educators from partner higher education institutions. It aims to enable teachers to design and develop open courses, as well as integrate open pedagogies into formal courses.
- Training in the Design and Validation of Micro-Credentials: Led by partner Universidade Aberta, this 3-day face-to-face training will empower relevant decision-makers from partner institutions (such as Rectors, Vice-Rectors for Quality and Research, Heads of Quality Departments) to develop institutional and national frameworks for introducing micro-credentials. At least 22 individuals are expected to attend this activity.
In total, at least 46 staff members from CRED4TEACH partner institutions in Albania, Montenegro, and Ukraine will participate in staff training activities to upgrade their qualifications.
