EFFeCT Project

The EFFeCT project is coordinated by the Knowledge Centre of the Tempus Public Foundation and will be carried out with the participation of six countries: Finland, Latvia, the Czech Republic, the UK, Ireland and Hungary. The main goal of the international collaboration is to develop a European Methodological Framework for facilitating teachers' collaborative learning. The finalized Methodological Framework will serve as an effective tool to foster local collaborations between teachers within and across schools. Moreover, the EFFeCT project is expected to contribute to teachers’ competence development through facilitating policy development and innovative improvements related to teacher learning at a national, a regional, a local and institutional level.

In February 2015 the Knowledge Center of Tempus Public Foundation successfully applied for a grant to carry out the European Methodological Framework for Facilitating Teachers’ Collaborative Learning – EFFeCT project, as part of the Erasmus+ KA3 Forward Looking Cooperation Projects. 

Teachers in the 21st century need to respond to a rapidly changing environment characterized by fast technological progress, changing labour market needs and demographic changes. Evidence shows that fostering strong working relationships among teachers, as well as promoting professional collaboration between teachers and other educational stakeholders allows them to deepen their knowledge, keep their competencies up-to-date, while professional collaboration improves student outcomes as well.

The project will be carried out with the participation of six countries: Finland, Latvia, the Czech Republic, the UK, Ireland and Hungary. The main goal of the international collaboration is to develop a European Methodological Framework which aims to facilitate collaborative learning of teachers and seeks to provide a guideline for policymakers and other educational stakeholders.

The Methodological Framework will be developed on the basis of extensive research on good practices of collaborative learning, conducted in each participating country. Later on the framework will be tested and further developed with the help of professional programs and workshops, to reach its final stage. The final product will incorporate a range of user friendly resources and guidelines, designed to be used at various governance levels concerned with supporting teachers’ learning – school policy level, local, regional policy, national and EU policy- with the goal of facilitating collaborative learning.

The finalized Methodological Framework will serve as an effective tool to foster local collaborations between teachers within and across schools; between teachers and other school staff, students and parents, local, regional and national cross-sectorial collaborations with stakeholders from other sectors (health, social, cultural); local, regional and national networking.
