Based on formal, informal and non-formal education, our methodology will try to stimulate active participation, pro-activity, responsibility and sharing of all participants involved. In this way, we aim to build a diverse and stimulating environment for reflecting, working and learning. It has a horizontal and practical approach and will make use of the following tools:
• interactive lessons
• team-building and team-working
• best practice case-studies
• multimedia and web resources
• project based working
• practical laboratory
• brainstorming and focus-group
• role-play
• self and group assessment and evaluation.

After the confirmation and before starting, we check the previous knowledge and experience of participants, as well as their specific needs related to the topics of our training course. In addition, we will provide some documents and learning contents of our “Library of Methods & Tools” in order to start getting involved in topics and subjects that will be taught.

All participants are expected to maintain access and communication with the rest of their colleagues as well as with the trainer and participate in useful discussions either through the virtual classroom platform and via e-mail. Trainers and company will also be available for any further questions for a period of 5 months after the end of the course, either through e-mail, virtual classroom platform, individual Skype calls, telephone or WhatsApp. By means of all these tools, we aim to get an effective follow-up, to stimulate peer networking, to keep in touch and to share opinions, experiences and practices for unlimited time.

At the end of the course, each participant will be awarded with a certificate of attendance, while the Europass Mobility Certificate will be issued upon request of the sending organisation.

Please do NOT believe the flowery words of this course. 1) You will be thrown together with other "courses" into one big group, taught by one and the same lecturer all at the same time. 2) One of the lessons is "I send you via Whatsapp 20 picture-tasks to do in Rome and you have two hours to do so. Meanwhile I'll be relaxing in this park." That is named " a non-formal learning activity outside". 3) Don't be surprised if the classroom is switched to the other side of Rome only one week before the course starts. 4) Don't be surprised if one of the lessons takes place in some random appartment in the suburbs of Rome, where you have to take notes leaning on the cooking plate of the kitchen. 5) When asking for "what does this course have to do with cultural heritage", the answer is "wall, you had to take pictures of SPQR, that is cultural heritage". 6) Don't be surprised if the apps that are shown - and that have nothing to do with storytelling - are outdated in your country. 7) Don't be surprised that a "guided tour in Rome" is on foot, even if temperatures are reaching 40°. Sorry, if I read "what is promised" here and "what is reached at the end", I do not agree at all.

Kind Tanja, we are sorry to hear that. As for joining some session together with participants of other courses, this is exactly what we scheduled in the programme of these other courses, as you Dear Burth, 1) as for joining some sessions together with participants of other courses, this is exactly what we scheduled in the programme of these other courses. And this formula also aims to foster the exchange, mutual understanding, team-work and cooperation among participants. 2+5) It is NOT like that: what you wrote is FALSE. Actually there are more than 15 differents tasks - from the organisation of the theatre performance to problem solving - but as I see you only focussed on collecting pictures. 3-4) We explained this many times: unfortunately there was a problem with our regular location, sorry. Anyway, the new locations were still close to metro stations and easy to get from your place. It will NOT happen again. 6) We presented some of the most popular apps around Europe, plus some NEW app. 7) It has always been communicated that it was a WALKING tour. But I agree that in summer these activities should be done in the evening. Finally, we invite you to join FOR FREE any of our courses, in Belgium or elsewhere. Take care
