This paper belongs to a PLE (Personal Learning Environment) research, which is in a development phase. This research is about PLE design, production and evaluation, and it is designed with the goal of qualifying university staff in the using of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT).
The research presents four revised phases, all of them focused in methodology and working plan: a) PLE design, production and evaluation; b) pilot study; c) virtual environment dissemination; d) development of the final report.
Owing to the fact that the research is in a development phase we don’t have results. Our purpose is obtaining different scientific-technical taxes and benefits with this project, for example: identify the most significant aspects for the faculty’s training in order to incorporate ICT in teachers’ professional development; create a PLE with the aim of developing an environment for the faculty’s training on ICT; recognize the impact that different tools have in the faculty training; become aware of the necessary methodological change that involves incorporate the PLE in the European Space for Higher Education (ESHE) at university.
Before concluding this paper, we would like to present our intention to incorporate some proposals from PLE Congress.
