Presentation “Considerations on the role of Educational Inspection in school improvement processes within the framework of an Erasmus+ project” at the Education Inspection Training Day (USIE-Comunitat Valenciana) 2020.
On February 20th 2020, the SS21DTIP project coordinator participated as a speaker at the XVI Training Conference of the Education Inspection, organized by USIE-Comunitat Valenciana, which was held in Segorbe (Castellón, Spain). School inspectors from all over the Community of Valencia and from others such as Catalonia and Aragon attended the event, and Laura del Castillo had the opportunity to disseminate some of the knowledge, conclusions and products that, until that time, had been obtained as a result of the development of the project. The theme of the presentation: “Considerations on the role of school inspectors in school improvement processes within the framework of an Erasmus+ project”, was addressed through a presentation, the content of which can be accessed through the attached link, and sought to disseminate the results of the case study on school improvement carried out in the four partner countries in the Erasmus project, as well as the main structure and content of the Toolkit for School Self-evaluation and Improvement that SS21DTIP will publish shortly on its website.
