TPM2- Portugal

The second transnational teachers’ meeting took place on 25th and 26th of October 2022 in Portugal at Universidade Lusófona, Lisbon, with the participation of the project partners: from Poland, Turkey, Italy, Belgium (online participation, due to health reasons), Finland and Portugal. The main objectives of the meeting were: – to discuss about the risk analysis results carried out by the Open Education Community Foundation (Belgium), – to discuss and present ideas about the requirements and methods for performing a valid factor and needs analysis task – to make an overview and evaluate the ideas and actions taken thus far on the project tasks – to present social media activities and the official web site of the project, as well as discuss further outreach – to discuss the dates of the next transnational meetings. The meeting started with risk analysis presentation by Frank Hiddink, a representative of the Open Education Community Foundation (Belgium), who presented the results of the “risk analysis” questionnaires carried out by all high-school project partners. The most important points to be drawn from these results were that: a) the questionnaires were well adhered to by students (almost 1200 students responded to the questionnaires) and teachers (more than 70); b) the most common form of student/teacher bullying in practice is face-to-face (and not cyber-bullying as it may be in the case of student/student nowadays); c) in order to study the results in more detail, it will be necessary to show the results of each independent country, study the influence of gender and age, etc. and not only in a general way. Afterward, the factor and needs analysis task was discussed and an important and necessary conclusion was reached for the successful execution of this task: a) a new questionnaire, in a scale questions format (e.g., likert scale), will be required in order to draw objective and more detailed conclusions from it; b) a consultation with a professional in the area of psychology is necessary in order to design a valid questionnaire with appropriate questions for factor and need analysis. To this end, the host representatives appointed Prof. Diogo Morais with whom they will discuss further steps towards the completion of this task. On the second day of the meeting, a document in excel format was presented where the responsibility of each partner is placing all dissemination activities throughout the project and social networks where the project is registered and where it shows the news and updates over time was presented. The project's website, its content and the information still needed to be inserted were shown to all partners and suggestions were heard. Finally, after evaluating the current state of the tasks and a general discussion, dates for the next transnational meetings were discussed and the partners reached the following (preliminary) agreement: a) the meeting in Turkey will be held between 19 and 20 September of 2023; b) the meeting in Finland will be held between 21st and 22nd February of 2024.
