Progressing Technology-Enhanced Teaching - Nov 2017
The MENTEP project developed a new online tool for teachers to self-assess their digital competence in teaching. During this MOOC, course participants will have the opportunity to use this new tool. The tool provides participants with feedback and resources that help them to improve their own digital competence in teaching. Moreover, course participants will be invited to describe own examples from their teaching to illustrate the 5 different levels (from beginner to expert) of the tool. After the course, a selection of these examples will be linked directly to the tool, making it even more relevant for teachers.
