Second National Partner Organization Meeting Within the EDiTE Project

The second national partner organization meeting within the EDiTE project took place on 25 April, 2017 at ELTE. This occasion was a fruitful opportunity for practitioners and researchers to brainstorm on specific activities for the internship period of Early Stage Researchers.

The Learning Teacher Workshop Conference

The Learning Teacher Workshop Conference was organized within the Learning Teacher research framework of the EU H2020 MSCA funded European Doctorate in Teacher Education (EDiTE) on 25 April, 2017. On this occasion participants could listen to the presentations of PhD students (four on Hungarian and four on English languages) at the Pedagogical and Psychological Faculty of the Eötvös Loránd University – ELTE (Budapest, Hungary). The underlying theme of the conference was teacher education and teachers’ learning, including:

  • the impact assessment study of an innovative school’s pedagogical programme;
  • adult learning models and the role of mentoring in learning management;
  • national teacher education programmes and the role of practice in these;
  • analysis of master teachers’ portfolio;
  • the role of leadership and organization in innovation;
  • the study of teachers’ learning in the context of professional learning;
  • Europeanisation in teacher education.

The conference was closed with an interactive discussion section between the participants and the presenters, and it could be considered as a professional meeting venue for Early Stage Researchers involved in the EDiTE project (Csilla Pesti, Helena Kovacs, Deisi Yunga, Vasileios Symeonidis), students of other PhD programmes from the Doctorate School of Education (ELTE), colleagues from the institution, as well as numerous partner organizations.

Teacher Education in Action – EDiTE Students at ELTE Have Started Their Teaching Activities

EDiTE students at ELTE are not only researching teacher education, but during the spring semester of 2017 they are teaching their own course, the Learning Teacher. The course was developed by the EDiTE students and it is offered to Education BA students. While teaching in undergraduate and graduate courses is a good learning opportunity for the EDiTE students, it is also an exciting challenge and learning opportunity for the BA students to develop their English presentation skills, skills in academic writing, and use of digital learning platforms. In addition, students are offered to gain perspectives of research in the topics of teacher knowledge and the importance of practice in teacher education, teacher learning in schools, the importance of innovative practices and the professional development in teaching in comparison with other professions across Europe.
The course builds on the individual researches of the three EDiTE students under the common research frame program titled the Learning Teacher. The course is an innovation in many ways: it is held together by three teachers (EDiTE students), and it combines real presence with virtual elements (one of the teachers will be on her secondment at a partner university of the EDiTE program during the course).
The main thematic focus of the course is teacher learning with a special emphasis on learning in context of practice and work. One of the key questions that the course will try to discover over the period of the semester is how teachers and student teachers learn about effective pupil learning while doing school based practice or while performing their daily work in classrooms and teacher communities.
The course aims to contribute to the students’ knowledge regarding the following three themes:

  • Teacher knowledge and the importance of practice in teacher education
  • Teacher learning in school and the importance of innovative practices

Professional learning in teaching and in other professions as part of the adult learning paradigm
The first introductory session was held on 16/02/2017.
