Capacity Building Selection Results 2019
The Erasmus+ National Office is proud to announce that two projects were selected for funding under the 2019 Erasmus+ Capacity Building call.
These projects will focus on the Capacity Building of Israel's Colleges for Education.
Together with these new projects Israeli Higher Education institutions have received funding for 20 projects (2015-2019) with more than half of Israel's Higher Education Institutions currently participating in projects.
The LOVEDISTANCE Project
The core objective of the project is to extend academic accessibility to excluded populations by building capacities for superior distance learning academic programs.
The LOVEDISTANCE project aim at providing a holistic view and solution, and build the total capacity required for transition from the traditional, exclusively frontal higher education, to the future era of distance education. In the near future, quality academic education will have to harness technology to combine various course methods – frontal, reversed (learn at home, exercise at class) hybrid and pure online. Specifically, the following capabilities should be developed by HEIs for successfully producing and implementing modern types of online academic programs: Pedagogical knowhow, Educational knowhow and Technological knowhow.
Israel (Ono Academic College, Levinsky College of Education, MACHBA – Inter-University Computation Center), Portugal (IPP coordinators), Spain, Romania, and Georgia.
The PROMENTORS project
The proposed project is built on a previous Capacity Building project – the Proteach project. In the previous project we developed the MIT (Multiplayer Induction Teams) model for amplifying beginning teachers’ voice during induction in order to sustain teachers’ retention.
In the PROMENTORS project we will advance the MIT model for a new model of mentors training in Israel. The new model will combine innovative mentors training from EU that emphasis on peer group mentoring and other process that stem from groups' learning and collaborative meaning making.
10 Israeli HEIs and 4 EU partners supported by the Israeli MOE will develop and pilot 18 mentors training MITs to structure a new mentor training course.
