Kraków TM5 September 2022

After a well-deserved summer break, CUTE partners gathered again from 20 to 22 September in Kraków, the south of Poland.

As this is the final straight before the end of the project, the main focus of the early-autumn meeting was to reflect on the deliverables and outcomes we have produced so far, and evaluate and critique them to ensure their usability and compliance with the project’s objectives. We also focused on disseminating and communicating the project’s results and planned for the upcoming months of work. Therefore, one of the main points on the meeting’s agenda was the pilot of the Multiplier Event run by the host of the meeting, the Centre of e-Learning at the AGH University of Science and Technology.

On the 20th of September, CUTE partners met with 21 participants from Polish universities eager to learn more about the DigCompEdu framework and the development of teachers’ digital competencies and bring lots of good practices and inspiration to their institutions. The event was very successful and gave the CUTE partners a chance to get inspired and reflect on the experience to be better able to prepare for their local events.

During the event, participants were also invited to discuss the DigCompEdu framework and ways the development of teachers' digital competencies could be supported at universities. This contributed to the IO5 stakeholders' consultations and recommendations.

But the Multiplier Event was not the only successful event on a busy schedule. Finalizing the toolkit (IO4) together with the planning for webinars to disseminate it to other Higher Education institutions was facilitated by Dominik, Andreas and Paula. Iain took us through the latest updates on tasks in IO5, and partners worked on the shared strategy to disseminate and communicate its results. The topic of dissemination was discussed further by the project coordinator, Annette and Linda who facilitated a creative session on a poster and booklet design.

Kraków was slightly grumpy during these three days. There was a bit of rain and a bit of sun, but this did not stop the CUTE team from having a great time, enjoying each other's company and putting a lot of hard work into bringing the CUTE methodology for the development of teachers’ digital competencies closer.
