· COURSE INFORMATION:
This course will focus on the variety of possibilities to make your school and classroom more international. It will be carried out in a mixture of theoretical and practical lessons with internationally mixed groups, aiming to end up with an internationalization plan and project ideas for both online projects and face-2-face projects for the own school. Moreover, we’ll have a look to the new accreditation of the Erasmus program.
This workshop is aimed at teachers and school staff from pre-school level to primary, secondary, vocational, adult and special needs education, staff of non-government organizations, government and policy makers and company staff. Non-native English trainers expecting participants to have at least B1 level of English proficiency.
This course will cover a range of subjects that should be considered when internationalizing your school:
- why internationalize your school
- overview over several options for international projects offered by the European Council and others
- the role of eTwinning and digital work in international projects
- useful collaborative apps for school partnerships and online projects
- how to get the funds for your projects
- how to make the most out of the new Erasmus possibilities after your successful accreditation
- what makes a good project / - internationalization coordinator
- one coordinator or team work
- embedding the European and International dimension to the curriculum and/ or school program
The course is based on both theoretical and practical lessons, as well as and presentations of examples of good practice and group discussions and sharing experiences. It will have short lectures to ensure full comprehension which the participants will then have time to turn into individual ideas for their schools and classes. Every day the participants will get short and fun assignments related to their needs and goals for the course on our own course-related eTwinning page. In that way, every day participants will become more and more accustomed to working in etwinning, will become more fluent in creating content and will come up with own ideas that can be directly used for their own individual projects at home.
Our experienced trainers will support and stimulate the networking and cooperation among participants. We organize networking, cultural, sport and historical activities in order to give participants the opportunity to exchange best-practice and establish professional cooperation and links. In these activities will take part not only participants of the course but also other participants from different courses running at the same time at the same venue. The expected training activity has been structured so that the participants can transfer know-how and develop needed skills to create and manage a project with real success.
By the end of the course, participants should have a proposal ready for a more internationalized curriculum and have set up a draft project plan for an international project or international online project. In the best case they will have found potential partners among the other participants or other channels that will be shown throughout the course.
At the end of the course, the company will provide the participants with an attendance certificate including the detailed information about the course, e.g. title, programme and schedule. In addition, a Europass Mobility Certificate can be added on request.
It exists a standard indicative daily programme. However, the course can be personalized each week according to participants´ needs and professional profiles.
The course’s trainers usually welcome participants on Sunday afternoon and give them all the course material. The main training activities, instruction and practices will take place from Monday to Friday. On another note, participants will be involved in cultural activities held by PMS ERASMUS PLUS during afternoon time, most likely on Monday, Tuesday and Friday. Moreover, on Thursday morning all participants will be able to explain their own school and KA1 project to the rest of participants and work all together to set up future eTwinnings or even KA2 projects. After that, all of them will have the possibility to enjoy an optional activity to deepen in the searching of new partners, enjoying a great day full of motivating and funny activities.
