MENTEP - Mentoring Technology Enhanced Pedagogy

MENTEP (MENtoring Technology-Enhanced Pedagogy) aimed at developing a reliable tool for teachers to self-assess progress in technology-enhanced teaching (TET) competences and testing the tool’s effectiveness using rigorous counterfactual protocols. The MENTEP experimentation took place in 12 European countries. The target group was made up by teachers working in lower secondary schools (ISCED level 2, Grades 6-8). In each country, a sample of approximately 50 schools and 1,000 teachers were randomly selected in order to participate in the experimentation. The evaluation strategy relied on an “encouragement design” using instrumental variables.

MENTEP is a project funded by the Education, Audiovisual & Culture Executive Agency of the European Union through the Erasmus plus Programme Key action 3: Support for policy reform — Prospective initiatives (EACEA/10/14). MENTEP involves 16 partners: 3 ministries of education (in Cyprus, Portugal, Spain); 9 other public authorities e.g. national agencies or research institutes in education (in Finland, Italy, Lithuania, Denmark, Slovenia, Cyprus, Norway, Czech Republic and France); 2 delegated bodies of public authorities (in Greece, Estonia); FBK-IRVAPP (the evaluation organisation; Italy); EUN Partnership (project coordinator).
