Abstract

The numerous socio-economic and cultural transformations affect the various educational institutions bringing about significant changes. A central role is assumed by the teacher, considered one of the determining factors for students’ academic success. This work aims, on the one hand, to reconstruct a summary framework relating to the features characterizing evidence-informed didactic mediation, on the other hand, it intends to focus attention on the planning phases of an in service training course calibrated on the teacher’s needs. In this specific case, the identification of the training needs took place through the administration of a structured questionnaire, designed to identify those components of the didactic expertise (planning, cognitive, management and evaluation) on which to define a plan of effective interventions, providing personalized feedback to all participants. The findings also revealed the teachers’ mental patterns and beliefs.
