TALENT organizes the PROF-XXI event on September 13 on the theme of “Hybrid Education”

As part of the PROF-XXI EU Project, TALENT organises this year the PROF-XXI Event. The event will take place at the IRIT new Auditorium the 13th September 2022. This time, the focus is Hybrid Education and we’ll count with national and international keynotes and panelists. We will count with the participation of people involved in THE CAMPUS Project, a project run by different institutions from Occitanie for moving Higher Education to Hyrid. 

The event will be in Spanish and French but we’ll count with simultaneous tradition in place.

The PROF-XXI Framework: A Competency Framework for Teaching and Learning Innovation Centers for the 21st Century

Happy to announce that we have our second paper about the PROF-XXI Framework published in an OPEN ACCESS Journal. This is one of the results of a collaborative effort conducted within the project PROF-XXI for defining the competencies that teaching and learning centers in Higher Education Institutions should develop for supporting and promoting teaching and learning practices. The paper has been evaluated with participants from 4 Latin American Institutions and has been shown a good approach for understanding the evolution of teaching and learning innovations within Higher Education Institutions. You can find a first version of the framework with some information about the project in the publication by Carlos et al., (2021).

This work sets the basis for Iouri’s Kotorov thesis, which aims at studying how to support Higher Education institutions in the development and monitoring of these PROF-XXI competencies. We are now working on a tool for monitoring these competences with the help of Faical Toubali Hadaoui and we hope to share with you some information very soon.

Abstract

During the COVID-19 pandemic, most Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) across the globe moved towards “emergency online education”, experiencing a metamorphosis that advanced their capacities and competencies as never before. Teaching and Learning Centers (TLCs), the internal units that promote sustainable transformations, can play a key role in making this metamorphosis last. Existing models for TLCs have defined the competencies that they could help develop, focusing on teachers’, students’, and managers’ development, but have mislead aspects such as leadership, organizational processes, and infrastructures. This paper evaluates the PROF-XXI framework, which offers a holistic perspective on the competencies that TLCs should develop for supporting deep and sustainable transformations of HEIs. The framework was evaluated with 83 participants from four Latin American institutions and used for analyzing the transformation of their teaching and learning practices during the pandemic lockdown. The result of the analysis shows that the PROF-XXI framework was useful for identifying the teaching and learning competencies addressed by the institutions, their deficiencies, and their strategic changes. Specifically, this study shows that most institutions counted with training plans for teachers before this period, mainly in the competencies of digital technologies and pedagogical quality, but that other initiatives were created to reinforce them, including students’ support actions.

Keynotes about Hybrid learning and Self-Regulated learning

Last 10th December, Mar Pérez Sanagustin participated in the 2nd International Conference of Educational Innovations organized by the Universidad del Cauca (Colombia) within the framework of the Prof-XXI project. She presented some of the main results about her research on hybrid learning initiatives based on MOOCs. Also, she participated as one of the main presenters at the seminar organized by the ANR xSCALE project, directed by Jean-Marie Gilliot. In this conference, she presented the last advances on the ANR LASER Project conducted by Esteban Villalobos. This project investigates how to study and support self-regulated learning in blended learning scenarios.
