3rd Transnational Project Meeting in Romania
Venue: Agigea, Training centre premises in Agigea, Constanta (Romania)
Date: 18th – 19th April 2023
Participants: 10 participants, two delegates per partner organization
Objective: to illustrate the state of the art of the intellectual outputs, monitor the progress and agree on the specific requirements before testing the educational materials by the Focus Groups.
The dates of 18-19 April 2023 marked the 3rd Transnational Project Meeting of the two-year Erasmus Plus project “STIT: Smart Tools for Inclusive Teaching in VET”. Delegates from all five partners took part in the management activities under the coordination of the consortium leader SOCIETA’ COOPERATIVA A.FO.RI.S.MA. – ACLI Formazione Ricerca Servizi Management from Pisa (Italy).
After the welcome words by the Romanian partner BCLIT, all attendees started the first session dedicated to the project activities’ progress.
QZR srl from Lucca (Italy) proudly presented the online database summarizing more than 120 accessible and inclusive distance teaching practices. These practices have been identified, selected and collected by the STIT consortium for spreading them beyond the partnership. In addition, willing to ensure the high quality of results, participants analysed and defined the review methodology. The next stage will be dedicated to peer-reviewing the pedagogical practices to ensure the equitable use of technology, and further integrate them into online training courses.
Besides the successful practices, the STIT consortium will develop an “Online training course for VET staff”. Through this course, the VET teachers will be able to conduct inclusive, engaging and empowering learning activities for their VET learners. In this respect, thanks to its expertise in online course design, BCLIT presented the conceptual model of the educational video. Therefore, the “Online training course for VET staff” will be developed based on the agreed model and will include 10 chapters referring to:
- Legal frameworks
- Needs and educational solutions for VET students with visual and hearing impairments, as well as with learning difficulties
- Accessible digital tools and best practice examples
Once created and internally validated by project partners, the online course will be piloted by VET teachers in the partner countries. We invite you to follow the Facebook pages of project partners to find out more about the pilot sessions in your country:
- In Italy: Soc. Coop. Aforisma, Flipnet and QZR
- In Spain: Fundación Docete Omnes
- In Romania: Constanta HUB
Aiming to widespread awareness and knowledge of the educational tools and methods, AFORISMA presented the communication strategic plan. This plan includes future activities that will be implemented by each partner in their community and country, as well as at the EU level. Through this approach, all partners contribute to the promotion of the project’s results benefitting from their high transferability potential.
