- Testing and comparing two different instructional designs and delivery modes in a randomised controlled trial.
- Running multi stakeholder national and European Dialogue Labs.
- Comparative efficacy and cost-effectiveness of different modes of online courses, for ITE or CPD.
- Optimal conditions for securing high retention rates in online courses for teachers, including the role of self-regulated learning.
- Conditions under which peer assessment can be reliably used in online teacher education, building and recognising teachers' capacities as reflective and networked practitioners.
- A Scientific and Advisory Committee of experts in the project domains
- Encouraging, through Dialogue Labs, training providers to cooperate on specific issues, thereby improving and sustaining exchanges between ITE and CPD
- Familiarising teacher educators with the new teacher competences by their being the first to test the courses and being invited to think about how such courses might be integrated within their organisations' overall training offer.
- Funding: the TeachUP project is a European Policy Experimentation funded by the European Commission via the Erasmus+ programme
- Duration: from March 2017 until February 2020
- Coordinator: European Schoolnet (www.eun.org), a network of 31 Ministries of Education from across Europe.
- Partners: 17 partners, with policy experimentation in 10 countries.

- Follow the development of the 4 online courses and learn more about the self-assessment tool, results and lessons learned. You can also promote the online courses among your teachers and school heads as a training opportunity to enhance their professional development. The online courses will be delivered via the European Schoolnet Academy: www.europeanschoolnetacademy.eu.
- Follow the project's development and outcomes on TeachUP's website and social media, and sign-up to the 4 online courses when these become available to promote amongst your schools and teacher training institutions as a training opportunity to enhance professional development of both student teachers and teachers.
