Designing the Competence-driven Teacher Accreditation

  1. 1. Designing the Competence-driven Teacher AccreditationKairit Tammets, Kai Pata, Mart Laanpere, Vladimir TombergTallinn University, EstoniaDragan Gaševic, Melody SiadatyS.Fraser University, Canada
  2. 2. IntelLEO project Intelleo is an international R&D project funded by European Commission (FP7 ICT programme, Technology-Enhanced Learning) 2009-2012, see http://intelleo.eu Three business cases:  Large company (VW) + Research institute (ATB)  Small global company (INI) + University (Belgrade)  Teachers’ association + University (Tallinn) Goal: validated theoretical model and software tools which support cross-boundary learning & knowledge building activities, improving organisational responsiveness

  8. 8. SECI model by Nonaka & Takeuchi
  9. 9. Re-thinking teacher accreditation Current practice of teacher accreditation in Estonia:  Four ranks: junior teacher, teacher, senior teacher, expert  Based on printed portfolio, easily measurable criteria Proposed approach: e-portfolio (ELGG) with integrated knowledge building tools (Learning Planner, Organisational Policy Tool) Scaffolding: intra-personal, inter-personal, organisational
  10. 10. Research problem and design Current accreditation process do not support teachers professional development, is not compliant with educational theories, nor with teachers’ professional qualification standard Research design:  Identification of current gaps (survey with 53 respondents + in- depth interview with 3 expert teachers)  Designing the alternative accreditation scenario and Web services for scaffolding  Evaluating the accreditation scenario and prototypes, participatory design sessions with 9 teachers
  11. 11. Results Survey and interviews identified the following gaps in current accreditation practice:  Paper-based accreditation does not include innovative digital learning materials and reflections  Missing feedback is one of the important limitations of the current accreditation process  Although teachers value highly reflection from peers, they are not not willing to spend time in reflecting, nor is reflection supported by current accreditation practices Alternative accreditation scenario was validated and adapted

  13. 13. Organisational Policy Tool
  14. 14. Conclusion An alternative scenario for teacher accreditation was developed, based on SECI model and scaffolded by e-portfolio + knowledge building tools Currently the scenario is being validated by the group of 16 teachers (October – December 2011) The next challenge: how to engage policy-makers in renewing the accreditation practices
