METHODOLOGY
We tailor the working methods based upon participants’ needs, attitudes and professional profiles in order to ensure high productivity, effectiveness and transferability into practice.
Our methodology is highly practical and participative with hands-on approach that comprises real-job examples, case studies examination and simulations. We embrace collaboratively working methods that foster mutual learning and cooperation among participants. Our focus is on learning outside the classroom in an interactive and international environment. The pedagogical methods that we use are based upon experiential training, group and peer activities, learning-by-doing and best practices’ exchange.
During the course the participants will work on a real website/blog and e-learning site that they will build up during the course and bring back home. The participants at the beginning of the course will be given an empty website and Moodle/Edmodo space. During the course the participants will use those as sandboxes to practice gradually filling and adapting them to their educational needs with the support of the expert trainers.
Morning Wrap-up and brief daily evaluations are foreseen to ensure quality of education and to adapt the learning programme to participants' needs better tailoring the education.
Free time has been planned to give to the participants time to assimilate the concepts, develop further the group activities, ask trainers for further clarifications, etc. Networking and cooperation among participants will be supported and stimulated at each stage.
We organize optional social, networking and cultural activities in order to give participants the opportunity to know Italy as well as to exchange best-practice and establish professional cooperation and links.
The training and staff team is multinational thus giving a full European dimension to the course.
The class-based course is completed by the support of the e-learning portal that is a great support both before and after the course in Italy.

I have attended this course during summer 2016 near Palermo, and the content taught was more than well presented and taught. Our trainer did his best to help us understand and practice all the tools presented in the course. I gained skills that I, now, regularly apply in my classes. The things I wasn't satisfied with were that communication with their organisation (IFOM) before the seminar was very slow and sometimes incomplete. Also, IFOM charged an extra 150 euro organisation fee (on top of the course fee), which the organizers of seminars shouldn't be doing, according to our National agency. However, after the seminar, IFOM were outgoing in helping out with correcting some of the necessary paperwork that had some mistakes in them (like the Europass Mobility Document, and so on). Furthermore, during the seminar there weren't any organized cultural trips/visits during our stay, and since the course was very intense there wasn't much time to go out exploring alone (although our trainer did try to find extra time one day for us to manage to explore Palermo by ourselves).
