How to use games, team work, peer learning and project method in education
The course is aimed to share good practice examples on how to use games, team work, peer learning and project method in the teaching and learning process, by combining these methods with the traditional methods of teaching. The course is appropriate for teachers at any level, of any subject, head teachers, school inspectors, school counselors, decision makers in the field of education, trainers.
The final course title is to be announced only to the participants in the course (people having the grant approved and registered based on a final registration form provided by the course organisers), as it will be adapted to their needs and to the objectives of the projects the participants receive the grant from. Moreover, each course is unique, as it is adapted also 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. Nevertheless, the final course title will include the key words mentioned in this title.
The course will be organized in Assen, the Netherlands, in 7 days (42 hours). At request, people having a grant for 5 days can join only the first 5 days of the course. In case there are people having a grant for more than 7 days we have the possibility to extend the programme to maximum 10 days (depending on the number of people having more than 7 days granted).
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.
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 meeting 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, local travel related to the course 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.
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 attended many courses in Europe, such as UK, Italy, but this course organized by Quarter Mediation was the most interesting I ever had. I learned many teaching methods and during the lessons I felt very good. I liked the way they used ICT in teaching and learning for increasing the students’ motivation to learn.” (Nicoleta S, Romania)
"I saw the progress of technology in the Netherlands in a concrete way, which gave me ideas of implementing the same thing in our country. As a school head teacher I can persuade the Ministry of Education in Turkey to implement similar projects in our city." (Osman O, Turkey)
"This course was a great experience for me! I learned a lot of interesting things and creative teaching methods. I felt like part of a family, because we worked in teams and every time there was another criterion for the formation of the teams; in this way we were able to discover each other and learning through cooperation. All the creative methods and techniques of teaching through music, art, ICT and sport in education, learned in this course, I will apply in my own work at the kindergarten. Also, I want to say “thank you” to our teachers Cristina and Tim, those who have been with us for 7 days and taught us so many beautiful and memorable things!" (Andrada Ciochină, Romania)

The course proved to be lack of content. The final title of the course changed to "CREATIVITY IN TEACHING & HOW TO USE ICT, OUTDOR ACTIVIVITIES, GAMES, PEER LEARNING AND PROJECT METHOD IN EDUCATION FOR A BETTER CLASSROOM BEHAVIOUR". However, these topics were simplistically treated. The best of the course was the interaction and exchange of ideas with peers and the accommodation provided by the organitation.

The declaration of Luis Ángel Gutierrez Verbo (Spain) at the end of the 5 days he attended from a 7 days course (text from his evaluation questionnaire): “This course allowed me to witness another paths of teaching. I learned that informal education, using games, visiting cultural places can provide students an extra motivation. This kind of methodology give them the chance to learn in a significant way important issues that will be important in their lives (values, cultural topics, environmental principal and contents of specific subjects).” The final course title was announced to the participants in the course (people having the grant approved and registered based on a final registration form provided by the course organisers), as it was adapted to their needs and to the objectives of the projects the participants receive the grant from. Last but not least, each course is unique (as each teacher's lesson should be unique), it being adapted also to the novelties in education, to the background & level of education the participants teach/train at. The participants in the course were also informed that more topics will be combined in each session, in order to create a course adapted to everybody's needs. Nevertheless, the final course title includes the key words mentioned in each participant topic of interest as the participants are required to choose a topic of interest in order to register for a certain course session.
