Creative teaching and learning methods for reducing early school leaving in a lifelong learning society

Rating: 5/54 users

The course is aimed to motivate students to attend school classes, to be actively involved in the lessons and activities the teacher organises and to finalise their compulsory education with a diploma. The course is appropriate for teachers at any level, of any subject, head teachers, school inspectors, school counselors, decision makers in the field of education, trainers.
The final course title is to be announced only to the participants in the course (people having the grant approved and registered based on a final registration form provided by the course organisers), as it will be adapted to their needs and to the objectives of the projects the participants receive the grant from. Moreover, each course is unique, as it is adapted also to the novelties in education, to the background & level of education the participants teach/train at (in case the participants come from the education area) and/or to the background of the participants (in case the participants come from the labour market or business area). It is also possible that more topics will be combined in each session, in order to create a course adapted to the participants' needs. Nevertheless, the final course title will include the key words mentioned in this title.
The course will be organized in Assen, the Netherlands, in 7 days. At request, people having a grant for 5 days can join only the first 5 days of the course. In case there are people having a grant for more than 7 days we have the possibility to extend the programme to maximum 10 days (depending on the number of people having more than 7 days granted).

For logistic and organisational reasons, all the participants will be accommodated in the same hotel chosen by the course organiser, the rooms will be booked by the course organiser and the participants will pay the equivalent amount by using the grant for individual costs received from their National Agencies.
All the participants in the training course will have breakfast and lunches together, in the same hotel where they are accommodated and where also the meeting rooms are located.

The course fee is the standard amount of 70 Eur per person per day. For organisational costs directly linked with the implementation of mobility activities, local travel related to the course activities, as well as monitoring and support during mobility each participant has to pay a fee of 65 Euro for the whole course, amount that will be paid by using the grant received from the NAs for organisational costs.
The course fee and the organisational costs are to be paid by bank transfer, before the course starts, to a limit date established by the course organiser.
The accommodation costs can be paid before the course starts (by bank transfer, in the hotel bank account, based on an invoice received from the hotel) or directly at the hotel reception, at the participants' arrival.

Feedback participants:
"I was really impressed by the high professional work of Quarter Mediation! As a teacher in a vocational high school I acquainted with many innovative teaching methods in order to gain my students attention and interest. Next to the very interesting course agenda a number of educational trips/visits, that were exceptionally organised, transferred us to another level of inspiration and knowledge! The wonderful thing is that Cristina helps you adjust all the pioneering methods to your school’s reality! We thank you so much!" (Ilianna Anagnostakou, Greece)
"This is clearly the best course I've ever been to. This because I not only learned about the culture and education system in the Netherlands, but I also learned new techniques and methods and I've changed my ideas about teaching. The first thing I'll do when I turn back to Turkey is to create more enjoyable, more student-centered, more real-like lessons." (Omer Kemik, Turkey)
“This course was a very good opportunity for me to improve my knowledge about methods that make teaching and learning more attractive, more involving, more creative. I discovered that it is possible to prevent early school leaving if you have positive reactions with students, you can make a lot changes; but first of all you have to change yourself. These acquisitions offered by a very professional team will help fighting early school leaving in my school.” (Stela-Mirela Kandert, Romania)
“To my personal development, this was an important week, because I am curious, I like learning different topics and thinking how they can connect to each other, so there were plenty of activities to do this (methods, strategies, visits...). For what concerns my professional development, the course was very useful, because all the methods presented focused both on creativity and multiple intelligences - which is very important because we work with a wide range of ways of thinking and learning - so considering that we aimed at learning strategies for reducing ESL, the activities that we were engaged in led me to re-evaluate my practice and to consider other possible ways of presenting the topics to my students.” (Carla Nunes, Portugal)
