From 9 to 12 May 2017, the 18 partners of the PARRISE project met at the “École Nationale Supérieure de Formation de l’Enseignement Agricole” (ENSFEA), in Toulouse, France, to discuss their progress with the Teacher Professional Development (TPD) programs in the 11 participating countries.
Partners shared their experiences with the second round of their TPDs, based on the PARRISE theoretical framework. Their objective was to learn from each other’s experiences, as well as to identify cross-cutting themes on the strengths, weaknesses, and challenges related to the TPDs. At the meeting, special attention was also paid to discussions about the evaluation of the TPDs, as well as about the dissemination of the PARRISE TPDs and student materials through the PARRISE good practices database. The meeting concluded with a discussion about the organization of the PARRISE final conference on August 20th in Dublin.
