In March 2018, the Bucharest University of Economic studies (www.ase.ro) served as a venue for a regional project workshop. Prof. Laura-Mihaela Muresan, who has been a member of the project network since 2016, invited over forty teacher educators, teachers, educational managers and students to the two-day event. The specializations of the experts from Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova, Poland ranged from languages for specific purposes (e.g. Business English and French) to the teaching of Romanian as a foreign language.
For the project team, the event was an opportunity to learn about current priorities and challenges for language educators in Central and Eastern Europe, and to gather feedback and insights on the project work in progress.
The experts scrutinized the draft online Guide to teacher competence instruments, which is accessible here, and gave valuable feedback on a first draft inventory of teacher competences. The discussions resulted in many inspiring ideas and concrete suggestions to make the website and the other project outputs attractive and lively, but also innovative in terms of content, ambitious in its aims, and solid in its ambition to provide maximal support for different kinds of teachers and their learners.
