In June 2021, the first learning, teaching and training activity (LTT) was organized by the University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Education. Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the event was held in a virtual environment on Zoom on five separate days. Three days were organized internationally, with participants from Slovenia, Spain, Germany and the Czech Republic. Two days were held in a national team, with participants from each partner institution.

The main objective of the INSHIP seminar I was to learn, reflect, discuss and receive feedback from the participants, i.e. academic staff, about the INSHIP model and the future INSHIP course that is being developed as part of the project with the aim of educating academic staff in supporting student teachers in high quality teaching practice.
The main topics of the LTT were evaluation in teaching practice and the CANVAS model, best practices in teaching practice, with the analysis of the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on teaching practice, conceptualization, identification and tips for the implementation of educational principles in teaching practice and professional competencies in teaching practice.
Although the event was held online, participants actively shared their experiences, opinions, and suggestions. In international seminars, participants worked in groups consisting of members from different countries, which proved to be effective and interesting. Some national meetings were organized face-to-face, others were held in a virtual environment.
Overall, the first learning, teaching and training activity was successful given the circumstances of the pandemic and the online implementation. We look forward to the second activity and keep our fingers crossed that we will be able to organize it face to face.
