Rating: 5/52 users

The course aims to train and improve the participants’ skills and competencies through creative learning by doing, hands-on, interactive interdisciplinary training activities by using art, ICT and outdoor activities, games, team work, peer learning and project method. The course is appropriate for teachers at any level, of any subject head teachers, school inspectors, school counsellors, decision makers in the field of education, trainers. The course is aimed for adult education, therefore it focuses on the development of the participants related competencies and skills (e.g. teaching/training related skills, soft skills etc.)
Each course is unique, as it is adapted 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 and to the objectives of the projects the participants receive the grant from. In this respect, the title above is a course topic ( the final course title will include the key words mentioned in this title, but it can be more complex).
The course is organized in Assen, the Netherlands, for 7 days, starting on Sunday afternoon and ending on next Saturday, at the lunch time. At request, people having a grant for 5 days can join only the first 5 days of the course, from Sunday afternoon to the next Thursday, at the lunch time.
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. The hotel offers the possibility to choose single, double or triple rooms. However, a double or triple rooms can be chosen only if other participants are willing to share double or triple rooms.
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 conference 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, 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 attended many courses in Europe, such as UK, Italy, but this course organized by Quarter Mediation was the most interesting I ever had. I learned many teaching methods and during the lessons I felt very good. I liked the way the trainers used ICT in training for increasing the learners’ motivation to be actively involved in the course.” (Nicoleta S, Romania)
"I saw the progress of technology in the Netherlands in a concrete way, which gave me ideas of implementing the same thing in our country. As a school head teacher I can persuade the Ministry of Education in Turkey to implement similar projects in our city." (Osman O, Turkey)
"This course was a great experience for me! I learned a lot of interesting things and creative teaching methods. I felt like part of a family, because we worked in teams and every time there was another criterion for the formation of the teams; in this way we were able to discover each other and learning through cooperation. All the creative methods and techniques of teaching through music, art, ICT and outdoor education learned in this course, I will apply in my own work at the kindergarten. Also, I want to say “thank you” to our teachers Christina and Tim, those who have been with us for 7 days and taught us so many beautiful and memorable things!" (Andrada Ciochină, Romania)
“Outside the school a wide variety of lessons can be taught with pleasure. Serious Games challenge and involve players in compelling contexts. This can motivate learners and show the concrete relevance and application of topics and skills that may be difficult to explain in words.” (Susan Störel, Germany)
“This course allowed me to witness another paths of teaching. I learned that education using games, visiting cultural places can provide learners an extra motivation. This kind of methodology give them the chance to learn in a significant way important issues for their lives: values, cultural topics, environmental principles and contents of specific subjects.”(Luis Ángel Gutierrez Verbo, Spain)

The course in Asena is very organized and interactive. There are lots of new content, examples of good practice, organizers and course leaders are well organized, accurate in giving information before, during and after the course. Beautiful experience with lots of interesting people from all over Europe ... The good side of the course is that all the participants are located in the same hotel, which greatly facilitates the whole process as there are lectures and workshops in the same hotel.
