In collaboration with the Universities of Antwerp, Nice, Valencia and Catalunya (OU), the Further Education institute Norwich City College and the Kildare and Wicklow Education & Training Board, iTILT partner TELLconsult is coordinating summercourses for teachers and teacher educators in Language and Vocational Education based on results of the EU projects the afore mentioned organisations were involved in:
'Using Interactive Whiteboards in Vocational Education'(Valencia, week 28, 2014).
'Preparing to be a trainer/coach to promote the effective use of Interactive Whiteboards in Vocational Education'(Valencia, week 28, 2014).
'Modern Language Methodologies & Technologies to promote Intercultural Communication & Telecollaboration'(Valencia, week 29, 2014).
'Using Interactive Whiteboards in Language Education’(Valencia, week 29, 2014).
These courses may qualify for European Key Action1 grant assistance under the new Erasmus+ funding framework (former Grundtvig and Comenius frameworks), the more since they can support the realization of the internationalization ambitions of educational institutes by offering free follow-up use of the course’s virtual learning space in order to support:
§ Continued international peer networking and professional collaboration
§ Effectiveness of personal continuing professional development (CPD) by offering opportunities to share experiences with local implementation of newly acquired skills in (collaborative) activities and projects
The application deadline for educational institutions to apply for EU funding for their staff is 17 March 2014. See TELLConsult's help pages on grant application procedures here
More information about the course descriptions, day-to-day programmes and international teams of animators involved is available on TELLConsult’s current courses and registration page.
