The course was very well organized: all the necessary information was given before as well as during the course. All the planned activities were fulfilled in a professional and timely manner. The organizers were always available for any question/request. Overall, I was very satisfied.

I have enjoyed the course and the cultural activities organized by IDEC very much. The contents of the course were very interesting and the trainers were friendly, supportive, confident and showed a deep knowledge of the topics. The materials given will be very helpul for our classes. The course had a good balance between theory and practice. We played games, took part in interesting discussions and we learnt a lot from the educative system in other European countries. It has been a very enriching experience I highly recommend. Pireus is a great place to stay since it is lively and there are not as many tourists as in Athens. You can easily go to Athens by underground anyway. The organization of the course and the cultural activities was superb. Thank you for making our experience so special.

IDEC's Innovative Teaching Methods was a well organized and structured course, whose lecturers Betty Aggeletaki, Vasileia Vaxevani, and George Valegrakis, skillfully related both theory and practice, in a easy to understand and fun way. Topics such as Debate, Theater in Education, Role Play Games, The Field Study, The Ethical Dilemma, and more were presented in a dynamic way through group and individual activities, taking into account the variety of learning methods of the participants and professional background. The cultural activities were a great bonus to an already valuable experience. Loved meeting, spending time, and exchanging ideas and practice with both program participants, lecturers and staff! Strongly recommend and would love to take part in future training courses.

A well balanced between theory and practice course. Jean Glover, the instructor, inspired us with her comments on our work and her concern about making everybody grow, according to their needs. The host organization was taking care of every detail. The course was well organized and the cultural programme very well chosen.

Our hosts from IDEC were extremely hospitable and kind and they have created for us the most wonderful and relaxing atmosphere. Gean Glover is a lecturer with great skills and the way she interacted with us was magnificent. She paid attention to all the problems, concerns and questions we had and we are truly grateful for this. We were divided into groups and our group was a small and compact one - exactly what worked good for us - we could freely and easily discuss and communicate between us. Next to all this, they were even kind enough to organize a short ICT course for us, which was a pleasant surprise. All and all - a well done job :) Thanks to Xenia, Lila and Olga for everything!

The course is well-planned, involving both theoretical and practical side. Every question that raised, got an answer and the learning environment was encouraging and entertaining. I felt that training center offered me plenty of information before and during the course - everything from course description, cultural activities to where to stay and how to get around etc. Training center and it's employees were all very helpful and nice. I would recommend this course to teachers who want to make learning and teaching experience more richer for both students and for themselves.

As this course has given me new skills and new challenges useful in class, I shall recommend it to other teachers. Thank you, Jean, for interlinking theory and practice thus encouraging participants to take part. Thank you IDEC team for all the great support and for enabling us such a wonderful experience."
