M. Begoña Arenas

I am a 45 year old professional with 2 children nterested in trans-regional projects that combine Innovation, ICT, educational and entrepreneurial opportunities. I am a result-oriented production director and manager that combines a legal and political science education with an EU affairs and business professional consulting background. I am also a devoted trainer in EU funding, IT projects design and development and mentoring as key to entrepreneurship. Training keeps my feet on the ground! Part of my daily tasks have included coordinating and upskilling a team of internal staff, external collaborators and supporting administrative and technical staff. I consider myself a reliable and organised professional, an effective trans-European team player & trustable work companion with specific interpersonal and intercultural communication skills. I am a curious learner capable of delivering under pressure (tight deadlines). I am also an experienced trainer with specific expertise in EU funding, project internal and external evaluation, elaboration of training needs analysis, innovation in learning, and network sustainability. I am highly committed to the organization’s values, mission and ethics, and really enjoy working in a multicultural environment.

 

 

eduteach logo 400 EduTeach is an international, interdisciplinary and collaborative project funded by the European Commission under the Erasmus+ program.

The aim of the EduTeach project is to design, test and implement a modular training program adapted to the needs and interests of those responsible in education and care for young children (0-6 years) across Europe. To allow both flexible and individual learning, the training offers will be based on ICT and incorporate a fair balance between interactive and self-study learning activities. Using results from a user needs analysis and evaluations of the implementation of trainings, EduTeach further tends to forward research and development on models, methods, and didactic strategies for effective online training to educators, preschool teachers and education directors.

The set of individual project objectives serves the aim above, and includes: 

  • development of a series of interactive, media-enriched learning modules; 
  • establishment of a database including digital learning material in 8 European languages; 
  • development of a learning platform that will serve as the host environment for the online training program. 

 

The online modules and learning sessions will consist of:

1. Self-study: Participants will be reading and watching material provided in an digital Learning Management System, based on ILIAS 5.1.

2. Storytelling: Integration of educational problem cases that are in line with the module topic and which professionals from all over Europe share.

3. Webinars: Each webinar will be moderated by a partner and senior experts from the field will be invited to give keynote speeches. The recorded contextualized problem case will be played and jointly discussed online.

On this webpage you will find all relevant information about the project, its outcomes and the partnership.

Intrapreneurship and the intrapreneur have entered the business vocabulary quite recently, but in a short time they have managed to attract interest, especially in the leading sector and industry of ICT. Competition, the need for the development of new ideas, the ever changing business and corporate environment, leave no options to simply overlook creativity wherever it comes from. Companies and businesses need all too often to rely on the innovative entrepreneurial potential of their human resources. What organisations have to do is allow intrapreneurship to flourish, stimulating and supporting potential intrapreneurs.
