Intensive teacher training in the application of distance education (holistic approach)

The intensive teacher training in the application of distance education (holistic approach) (T4E) is a teacher training program, which offers new knowledge and skills in digital learning environments.

For the first time, teachers of all disciplines were trained so massively and with such intensity. In total, more than 750 trainers participated, more than 82000 participants were trained, while the classes created were more than 1500.

Both synchronous (teleconferencing) and asynchronous (e-Class and e-Me platforms) e-learning technologies were used in the T4E teacher training. The duration of T4E training was 20 hours, of which 10 hours were dedicated to training through synchronous e-learning tools (Webex) and 10 hours training to the asynchronous platforms (e-Class and e-Me).

The purpose of the Τ4Ε training was to utilize distance education and further deepen the knowledge and digital skills of teachers in pedagogical and teaching approaches, supported by synchronous digital media, which are used in technologically enriched education with physical presence, as well as in distance learning. The program was completed with the design of an educational scenario made by each trainee, which utilized both synchronous and asynchronous distance learning.
