Non-native English trainers expecting participants to have at least B1 level of English proficiency.
You will learn how to preserve and disseminate the local heritage that all of us have in our cities. Iceland will show you old legends and stunning places so you can prepare the same taking in account your teaching background and your own knowledge of your country. Travel journal will be used as a notebook to take notes of the course and where to write the inputs received every day. Finally, teachers will summarize the course in a short presentation making comparisons between Iceland and their own countries. This is the way to learn how to preserve and disseminate the local heritage that all of us have in our cities.
CULTURE AND HERITAGE course is based on practical lessons and trips to discover local heritage based on different fields of education. The course will have amazing visits, stunning sightseeing, lectures and workshops to ensure full comprehension of the final task. You will receive pills of knowledge about different fields of Education such as Science, Nature, History, Literature, Geography, … enjoying old legends of Iceland and visiting stunning places of the island. Everyday you’ll have a task to do related to the final job that every teacher should present on the last day.
Our experienced trainers will support and stimulate the networking and cooperation among participants. We organize workshops, networking, cultural, sport and historical activities in order to give participants the opportunity to exchange best-practices and establish professional cooperation and links. These activities are a very good example of how to organise activities in a possible common future KA2 project. The expected training activity has been structured so that the participants can transfer know-how and develop needed skills to create and manage a proposal with real success.
Teachers will have the chance to assess the Iceland preservation of Nature and they have to trace a guideline to do with their own students once they have returned to their countries. By the end of the course, participants should know how to preserve their local heritage thanks to Icelandic experience. To ensure that, participants will work on a travel journey taking notes about inputs received by different trainers they will have daily in the course. So, teachers will acquire concrete skills on how to design a plan to conserve local culture and work with their own students. Furthermore, trainers will make extensive use of evidence-based examples and experiences.
In the end of the course, the company will provide the participants 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.
