Background material

An overview of what you will experience during the webinar.

In this event, the focus is on impact and mission with and for society.

The speakers of the webinar will present good practices which scored high in the category of Impact and mission with and for the society of the PROFFORMANCE Higher Education Teacher Award. In the plenary session, speakers will present short 7-minute summaries of examples of their practices in impact and mission with and for society. This will include sharing with the audience:

  • Brief info about the institution and the programme in which the method has been applied
  • Main topics
  • Challenge/problem – objective
  • Methodology of implementation
  • Technology, tools used
  • Outputs/Outcomes/Impacts
  • Lessons learnt (success factors/mistakes to avoid)
  • Adaptability, transferability to other disciplines

The plenary session will be followed by parallel breakout sessions – a targeted learning activity in which the speakers will present their practice in more detail and they will provide a ’recipe’ for implementing it. You will also see demonstrated some practical examples of the practices. In this way you can gain better insights about the applicability of the presented practices and have the opportunity to engage in a group discussion around it, its applicability and transferability, important factors to consider, mistakes to avoid while implementing the specific examples, etc. Breakout sessions provide space for collaboration, networking and resource sharing on innovative ways of achieving impact and implementing mission with and for society.

We are looking forward to meeting you in the main plenary session and in breakout rooms which you find most relevant and interesting for your teaching practice.
