eLene kick-off meeting : Down to work! Nice, 27th and 28th January 2005
Deborah Arnold, Vidéoscop-UN2 / CANEGE 2/16 First of all… WE DID IT!!!!!!!!!
Deborah Arnold, Vidéoscop-UN2 / CANEGE 3/16 eLene-TT spirit Three types of project management: The coordinator as director-general: Coordinator = strong leading figure who takes over full responsibility. Only partial tasks are delegated. The coordinator in the true sense of the word: Responsibility for different tasks is shared according to the expertise and interests of the project members. The coordinator as process manager: Coordinator role split among many, nominal coordinators only facilitate the project process, content given to outside expert.
Deborah Arnold, Vidéoscop-UN2 / CANEGE 4/16 Steering committee Two people from each partner institution: The local coordinators already identified Plus one other person to whom coordination work can be delegated Steering committee: Coordinates work at national level Is responsible for dissemination at national level Reports to project coordinator Participates in intermediate meetings

Deborah Arnold, Vidéoscop-UN2 / CANEGE 6/16 Reminder of Project Objectives / 1 The driving idea behind the eLene-TT project is to improve the pedagogical use of ICT by improving the training of HE teachers. All the partners have developed tools and approaches for teacher training in several projects supported by the EU or national initiatives. One of the main features of eLene-TT is to pool and test this experience in the wider, European context, with a view to generalising results and furthering their exploitation.
Deborah Arnold, Vidéoscop-UN2 / CANEGE 7/16 Reminder of Project Objectives / 2 The main objectives of the project are to develop a model for a Virtual Learning Resource Centre for teacher training with a view to improving the quality and efficiency of the learning process. This will be done through student-driven teacher training, aiming to improve both the skills of higher education teaching staff to teach in ICT- based environments and the learning process of these teaching staff themselves.

Deborah Arnold, Vidéoscop-UN2 / CANEGE 13/16 Project management Financial aspects / 1 Payments of grant to partners: We will follow the usual rules for payments of grant, which will be in several instalments to each partner (corresponding to the payments we receive from the EC and to the advancement of the project): 1st payment at start of project = 25% 2nd payment on completion of 1st year's work (to coincide with interim report) = 15% 3rd payment on approval of interim report by EC = 25% 4th payment on completion of project = 15% 5th and final payment on approval of final report by EC = 20%

Deborah Arnold, Vidéoscop-UN2 / CANEGE 15/16 Project evaluation / 1 From project proposal: The idea of testing, evaluating and monitoring is central to the eLene-TT project. This implies that evaluation and monitoring will be ongoing and integrated from day one of the project. To ensure effective project management and internal communication, the steering committee will monitor the project progress as mentioned in 2.C.1 above. Furthermore, an external project evaluator will participate in key events of the project (partner meetings) and will have access to internal project management documents. This evaluator will design questionnaires and conduct interviews with project participants to enable partners to express their views on how they feel the project is progressing and will report back to the group at each project meeting. During the kick-off meeting, partners will decide together whether this feedback should be anonymous or not. The evaluator will provide a detailed report for the intermediate and final reports sent to the Commission.
Deborah Arnold, Vidéoscop-UN2 / CANEGE 16/16 Project evaluation / 2 : Indicators Indicators of results and outputs will include: For project management monitoring: - The respect of deadlines and budget as provided by the bi-monthly financial and progress reports - The effective number of working days spent on the project (bi-monthly timesheets) - The effective completion of Work Packages For measuring the impact of the teacher training actions: - The number of teachers effectively trained - The percentage of teachers actually implementing new methods and approaches with students - The number and profile of users participating in the online community - The feedback provided by teachers and students in the evaluation stage For measuring the impact of dissemination actions: - The number of hits and downloads on the website - The number of requests for information and the source of these requests (teachers, teacher trainers, others…) - The number and profile of participants in workshops, online seminars, conference presentations
