B-LEARNING IN HIGHER EDUCATION: EVALUATION OF TEACHERS’ ROLES AND FUNCTIONS

Technological developments and inherent challenges of incorporation of "mediation, and the information and communication technologies" compel Higher Education Institutions to bet on combined training spaces or b-learning for learning orientation. Associated to this bet, there is a concern regarding the roles and functions carried out by teachers and the evaluation of their performance.

This project is located at the intersection of the following areas: research on educational evaluation and b-learning in Higher Education. Methodologies, strategies and instruments for the evaluation of teachers are studied under this approach.
The research project aims to (i) determine the objectives of evaluation and the teachers’ aspects that should be evaluated, (ii) document and analyze their functions, and (iii) characterize and validate teachers’ assessment practices in b-learning contexts for Higher Education.

This research takes into account data from interviews, questionnaires, forums and videoconferences carried out to researchers, teachers, students, experts from different national and international universities, research groups and virtual education centers. The project combines both quantitative and qualitative techniques in three different stages. During the first phase a database is developed with state-of-the-art information; the second stage involves the foundations and characterization of teachers’ roles and functions; and the third phase focuses on socialization, diffusion and validation of the characterization of teachers’ roles through a 2.0 web platform, a space built for discussion by national and international experts.
As a result and final contribution, a proposal is built to on-line develop and adapt strategies and tools which allow the evaluation of the teachers’ functions validated in this project.
