Find our support reaction to a recent blogpost by Ilpo Halonen (Euneos) entitled ‘Incentives needed to promote digital education in Erasmus+ program’ where he concluded that ‘More incentives are needed in the new Erasmus+ programme 2021-2027 to make the Digital Education Action Plan really functioning and efficient’ https://ilpohalonen.wordpress.com/2021/07/09/incentives-needed-to-promote-digital-education-in-erasmus-program/
We at TELLConsult strongly support your view and would like to add another argument to your plea.
After 2 years of emergency online teaching in education at large we were shocked to find financial support missing for even a blended approach in course offerings in the recently launched update of the ErasmusPlus programme. Ever since convincing evidence has been available that input (even an intensive course week of great quality) without follow-up events with a focus on reflection on actual local practice (=implementation of innovation) does not contribute to effective professional development we have been pleading at national agency meetings to also include online activities as eligible costs. Alas to no avail so far apparently. A pity this chance of involving the quality CPD principle ‘Teach as you preach’ was missed.
