MENTEP MOOC Online focus group on research results 

Purpose of investigation

We are seeking interested teachers to give us feedback on the technology enhanced teaching self- assessment tool. More specifically we would like to gather qualitative insights (your feedback) about two main points:

1)      The content and usability of the tool (including the feedback page of the tool)

2)      Discussing some of the results of the impact of the tool on teachers, which we have gathered during a quantitative impact evaluation.

Your input would help us to improve some specific aspects of the tool, which will be available to all teachers in Europe.

We assure you that your data will be treated in the strictest confidence. The information gathered during the focus groups will be only solely used for research purposes.
