Form@hetice is a network of teachers of 23 High Schools of the French Community of Belgium. It mainly concerns contact persons in Information and Communication Technologies in Education (ICTE) working in the educational department of these schools where the training of future teachers is organised.

The general domain that is covered by this CoP is ICT used in education by teachers or/and future teachers. The members exchange personal experiences about the implementation of ICT in Higher Education (“Hautes Ecoles” or High School in English) courses, help each other in the achievement of personal projects, etc.  As a practical achievement, the group has decided to gather all their personal experiences in implementing teaching/learning platforms in a common document collaboratively written on a wiki.

The actors are contact persons specialised in ICTE, their main roles are to train their colleagues and support the design and implementation of projects integrating ICT uses in their courses; and teachers trainers (for people of the pedagogical department) and some teachers of other departments (paramedical, social, economy, technical…) who are interested in integrating ICT in their teaching activities.

Origin of the community: FORM@HETICE originated from a need analysis of 6 High Schools (1999-2000) in Belgium. In 2000-01, the network started with 23 institutions (all the educational departments of the High Schools of the French Community of Belgium).

Openness of the group, evolution of members: The Cop has been enlarged in 2005 to teachers of other types of departments (paramedical, economics, etc).

Main intention: To develop a network among “resource persons in ICTE” and their colleagues inside the High Schools (HS) to help introducing ICTE in their educational practices, and share their projects and practices.

Who moderate: The CRIFA of the ULG is the coordinator of the project. It is helped by a pilot committee composed of representative of the actors involved in the network (Directors of HS, resource persons, teachers, representative of the Ministry of Higher Education, etc.).

Modalities of knowledge management (in which purpose): Archives of meetings and training resources are available on the website, some interactions coming from the discussion lists are also compiled to provide a memory of the project and resources related to the topic (teachers’ training in the use of ICTE).

Currently used technical services: A Web site supports the work between the users (dynamic agenda to communicate or propose dates of training sessions, of plenary meetings, of collaborative groups meetings, information on the actors, resources, etc.). A discussion list and e-mailing support interactions with the community.
Contact(s) inside the community:  CRIFA-ULG (B. Denis) is the coordinator of FORM@HETICE and could be the contact in this COP
Possibilities to set up a focus group with users: Yes
