Dataset Open Access
This dataset was used to support the development of the DIALLS project’s (Dialogue and Argumentation for cultural Literacy Learning in Schools, www.dialls2020.eu/) teaching and learning materials as open access online educational resources (OER). It consists of quantitative data (i) evaluating the three OER (i.e., professional development (PD) materials, lesson plans (LP), Scale of Progression for Cultural Literacy Learning (SPCLL)) and (ii) assessing the discussion forum as a platform for building a DIALLS community of practice. N = 140 teachers from Germany, UK, Portugal, and Israel participated in the surveys over the course of six months (September 2020 to February 2021).
For each country, there are four datasets from the surveys. For data collection, the surveys have been translated into the partner countries’ language, open feedback is translated from the respective languages and now in English (i.e., Translation from German, English, Portuguese, Hebrew).
Based on Kirkpatrick and Kirkpatrick’s (2006) evaluation model and the Value Creation Framework (VCF) (Wenger et al., 2011), the surveys have been developed and the discussion forum designed. From this, items regarding the materials’ application, content, design, and value were included in the assessment of the quality of PD materials, lesson plans, and SPCLL. The quality of the discussion forum was assessed regarding its motivation, participation, topic, and value.
Considering the context, the dataset is relevant to the following areas of research: Communities of Practice, OER, Teachers’ professional development.
The dataset is organised in 1 file (merged quantitative data from all four surveys and all four partners). A detailed description of the dataset can be accessed in a PDF file. Further, the provided codebook in the "variable view window" in SPSS explains the variables and values.
