Mosaic of Communication (Lithuania)

Rating: 4/55 users

Effective communication and craft of mosaic making

The course raises awareness of the need to learn effective communication in order to be successful in our social lives and to achieve the goals raised in Europe 2020. By exploring different types of communication while creating a mosaic, participants will analyse skills that make their communication effective. The skills can be compared to a pieces of mosaic – we can observe the colour and the shape of a single piece, but only a complete picture of assembled pieces together give us aesthetic satisfaction. The same with the communication – only understanding the mechanism behind communication and engaging the skills efficiently we can achieve effective communication. The course methodology is unique in a way that participants not only improve their understanding of effective communication but also learn the craft of mosaic making. The artist Kostas Klimavicius and his workshop "The bridge of mosaic"( support the practicum of effective communication.
eTwinning is an important component of the course work where participants share their daily learning ideas. It also serves as monitoring and dissemination tool.

Understand the importance of effective communication in the European context;
Work in collaboration with other participants developing communication skills;
Participate in the international and intercultural exchange.
Understand the benefits and pitfalls of cross-cultural communication;
Develop a plan how to promote opportunities for children and young people to engage in effective cultural dialogue.

Familiarise yourself with the course materials you receive after confirming registration.
Introduce yourself to other participants explaining what makes you unique as a person and a representative of your country.
Present a few examples of patterns and colours that are traditional in your country.

After the course participants will reflect on the gained knowledge and its application in their own educational environment. They will complete a report to be sent to their national agency and the course organiser. The trainers will provide support for collaboration between participants encouraging them to initiate eTwinning or school partnership projects and help to find partners.

The course was very interesting, and I learned a lot. Maybe the theories were not new to me, but it was nice to be reminded and to debate the topic with fellow collegues from European countries. I really enjoyed learning about mosaic making. And another thing we are bringing with us home is contacts for future projects, this is really nice. We made new friends!

The course was very interesting and we could learn, not only about communication, but also a new skill (how to make a mossaic). It is always very interesting to have the opportunity to visit schools in other countries. You feel very comfortable from the beginning, since people are really nice here. I am really looking forward to puting it into practice when I come back home!
