Here you find a summary of the workshops. 

In order to produce outputs that are fully consistent with the needs and expectations of end users (i.e. lecturers in higher education institutions), national workshops were organized during the first two years of the project.

The workshops were named “Build the Community” referring to their purpose to collect inputs and feedbacks from the community of end users (i.e. teachers in higher education institutions).
Participants in the national workshops were university lecturers working both in the partner universities as well as in other higher education institutions involved at national level.
76% of the participants were women and the majority, aged between 36-45, have over 15 years of experience in teaching in higher education institutions.

The main reasons why they decided to attend the workshops were an interest in a more active and better use of TEL as well as a willingness to acquire/improve digital skills.

All national workshops were organized according to the same or similar programmes.

The purpose of the first workshop was to:
  • Present the Adulet project aims and activities
  • Present the Teaching Method Template and collect feedback and suggestions for improvements
  • Present the TEL-Tool Template and collect feedback and suggestions for improvements

On the basis of inputs and feedbacks provided by the community of teachers who attended the workshops, the main project deliverables (and especially I.O.1 Teaching Methods for TEL, I.O.2 Guidelines for the Effective use of TEL Tools as well as I.O.5 Community of Practice) were developed to be consistent with the needs and expectations of the target groups.

The purpose of the second workshop was to:
  • Present the activities and in progress results of the AduLeT-project
  • Present the Community of Practice (CoP)
  • Test of the Community of Practice
  • Evaluate of the Community of Practice

Participants made an evaluation of the workshops. They were asked to fill in a 1 page paper Evaluation Forms at the end of the workshop. The results of this paper based evaluations show that:
  • 78% of the participants in the workshops organized in the partner countries found the workshops useful.
  • 93% agreed that the deliverables presented are useful.
  • 79% stated that they will use the deliverables presented with their students.

According to the online evaluations made by the teachers filling in the online form mentioned above, the workshops were well organized (the average score was 8/10) from a pedagogical point of view, there was a good balance between theory and practice and a very good interaction with the participants and tutors. The impact of the workshop was also satisfactory (the average score was 7/10) as the contents presented were consistent with the needs, were applicable and could impact on the promotion of a more active use of TEL.

The participants in the workshops were also asked to provide a feedback about the project results, in particular the one that collects all of the project deliverables, i.e. the Community of Practice. It is to be underlined that at the time of the workshop, the Community of Practice ( was still work in progress and therefore the feedbacks received contributed to its improvement and better implementation.
