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.

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.

"I am very pleased with the course. Lectures were good and concise. I am PhD candidate in the ICT field and I improved lot of competencies and skills. I learned how to use some services and tools that I did not know; I learned how to "break the ice" with question/answer game; I practiced English language; I improved the use of some ICT known services and tools. " (Kristian Dokic, Croatia)
"The course "Creativity in teaching and learning by using ICT" motivated me to design more attractive and creative lessons, able to facilitate a learning process centered on concrete examples, on making the learning content more attractive in order to better motivate the students. By being involved in the practical workshops organized and in the interactive teaching methods shown in the course, my professional experience is very much improved." (Loredana Mihailescu, Romania)
"I had a very nice week. I got a lot of inspiration to be creative in my teaching. The visits were also very nice. All in all it was a very rewarding experience." (Joanna Young, Finland)
"This was not my first ICT course in our KA1 project, but it was really the best one. First of all, there was a warm atmosphere in the class in spite of the cold Netherlands weather outside the building. Our trainers were helpful about everything. I learned completely new things that are really useful for teachers. As you know, technology is developing as swift as the thought. So, it is not easy for me to catch up with the novelties in technological world or in computer world, but our students were born in technology and they are really better than us using technology. So, I was feeling bad about it before coming here. But now, I believe that I can catch their attention with magical lesson plans created using ICT tools that I have learned in the course, which will make me a better instructor. From now on, you can be sure that ICT will be my first assistant in teaching process and I will keep it on the right side of me. The course was not only about using ICT into our lessons but also about how a teacher can be resourceful. I learned lots of programmes which will be really helpful for me as a teacher and make my lessons more interesting and more intriguing and now I have lots of ideas in my mind about what I am going to do when I go back to my country. I also realized during the course that I can combine different activities to get the students involved in education process actively. To conclude, it was a great experience to be here and learn with my colleagues from different parts of Europe. (Munevver Cesur, Turkey)"
"The course experience has enriched me both personally and professionally. I got to know and work with people of different nationalities from which I have learned so much and also given my lack of knowledge in English I have enriched my skills in this language; professionally I have received so much by the trainers because they have been with me wherever I have had difficulties and I'm happy because I can share what I learned with my colleagues when I will return to school."
