Description

The PROFFORMANCE project aims to support quality enhancement of Teaching and Learning at HEIs in EHEA. The consortium plans to create a set of criteria and an assessment tool of teachers’ performance trying it out at pilot visits in all partner countries, as well as to elaborate recommendations on incentive systems for teachers’ development. The criteria model and the tool will help teachers and HEIs to translate EHEA and European Education Area teaching and learning targets to real actions. Best practices of innovative teaching will be collected and disseminated through an award for teachers and by an online database.

2.Peer-learning activities - Organization of 3 international peer learning activities (PLA) on teachers' roles, skills and relations to students/stakeholders to determine the focus and questions of the teachers' performance assessment tool.
3.Elaboration of a teachers' performance assessment tool -  Finalizing and customizing the assessment tool - (teachers, student, managerial, external, and self-assessment) versions.
4. Piloting and testing the assessment tool in one institution of each partner country.
5. Collection of good practices based on the evaluation system criteria in an online database through the International Higher Education Award Call.
6. In addition to the evaluation/assessment system, make recommendations for the establishment of an incentive scheme at institutional, national, EU and EHEA level.
