How to use games, team work, peer learning and project method in education
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 games, team work, peer learning and project method in education. 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 Sliema, Malta, 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 course will be oorganised for groups of minimum 15 participants having a 7 days grant or minimum 20 participants having a 5 days grant.
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, as well as apartments. However, a double room, a triple room or an apartment can be chosen only if other participants are willing to share a double room, a triple room or an apartment.
The conference rooms are located in the same hotel and all the travel to the course outdoor activities and visits will depart from the hotel.
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 85 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.
“I developed communication skills in all the course activities. I improved my organisational skills and team-working competencies because I had to work in teams and collaborate with the other participants. All the teaching methods that were used during the course helped me develop leadership skills, as all the methods implied taking decisions, communicating, taking risks, listening and collaborating.” (Paula-Cristina Ifrim, Romania)
"My learning experience has been wonderful. On one hand we have seen very different methods to use in our class and how we can include music, sport, art and ICT in a traditional class, doing our classes more funny and more completed. On the other hand, we have compared our schools and our methods with the Maltese schools and methods, as well with the other participants' countries. I think I improved in creative competencies and how we can use our normal activities like a more profit activities. Moreover, the teachers have to have more energy to transmit to our students the motivation that we need to learn. At the same time, it is important how we can involve different subjects together because all the subjects are involved in our daily life. Other important thing I've learned is that we have to respond to the needs of our students. Due to, we have to use different styles of learning to adapt the concepts to them." (Paula Martinez de la Torre, Spain)
"This combination of culture, art and educational dimension gives me the courage to see the education from a different and totally new angle, to apply new methods and to look sincerely to my own activity in my home school. A perfect organization!!! Warmest thanks for the wonderful time spent in Malta." (Tudorel-Aurel Dragoi, Romania)
