Methodology and Tools
The whole seminar follows our innovative model approach "Learn-it-easy OR drop-it-easy"TM that we have developed and applied in all our training practices. It is based on the foundation that any learning exercise and especially e-Learning should be based on the seven (e-)s, exiting, enthusiastic, energetic, emotional, extended, excellent and educational. The training course will have a duration of 25 face-to-face teaching hours as well as 10 more hours through self-learning in the afternoons and a follow up through virtual discussions and group work. Each topic allows sufficient time for discussion as well as Questions and Answers Sections.The course is structured in such a way that it addresses the different individual needs and competencies of each participant. At the beginning of the course, participants can be inducted briefly via skype by one of the facilitators/trainers to assess the participant needs and highlight the most important modules for them. Trainers can be consulted continually via innovative eLearning practices.
The whole training will be delivered also through e-Learning practices and related tools so that participants can follow under real situation and experience how an e-Learning course is developed and delivered.
The whole seminar is based on state of the art pedagogies and tools such as mindmaps, zooming software and it is highly interactive and heavily based on group sessions. It is characteristic that no presentation slides are used for the training and all participants are provided with access to various related free e-book publications for optional further reading.
Innovative techniques, such as zooming software, mindmaps, social media learning, self-tests, assignments as well as an extensive virtual library with related e-books for each topic are available to the course participant.
Free wireless access is provided and also laptops can be available for group activities. However, trainees are encouraged to bring their own laptop and use it for taking notes and accessing the course material online during the training session for direct and personal training delivery.
All seminar participants are expected to maintain access and communication with the rest of their colleagues as well as with the tuturs through the e-Learning platform of the seminar that will be available for one more month after the end of the seminar. Tutors will be also available for any further questions, they may have also. In that respect, they will be receiving also RSS feeds on effective learning and share ideas through the forum facility on the seven (e-)s exiting, enthusiastic, energetic, emotional, extended, excellent and educational and how these are achieved. Any e-learning course created on our servers during the seminar, can be maintained for further use by the individual or the group that created it. In addition, all participants will be encouraged to register on a virtual community that is maintained with currently more than 200 members across all over Europe interested and active in free innovative practices in eLearning.
Who should attend
All people that are involved in adult education sector, such as: Teachers, trainers, career officers, educational guides and chancellors, inspectors, headteachers/principals/managers, other (paid or voluntary) management staff, non-teaching administrative staff, students, human resource managers as well as anyone interested to exploit e-learning possibilities for advancing their professional skills and services.
In addition, it is evident that any project that involves european actors with different skills, knowledge, interests, priorities requires heavy training practices at various stages in the project and effective eLearning is one of the key practices for achieving this effectively and efficiently, especially in European projects that partners are remotely located. For example eLearning can be used for training the partners in a common project management tool that will be used for the project communication; eLearning can be used for training end users how to use a developed prototype or other outcomes from a project; eLearning can be used to train the partners on how to implement successfully specific tasks in a European Project (e.g. to use a software platform/prototype, to conduct a survey, to apply dissemination practices, to prepare sound financial and management report, etc).
In fact nothing can be done effectively and efficiently without proper training and eLearning can do this both effectively and efficiently.
The event is supported by an international team of experts in e-Learning environments. The main instructor is Mr Nikolaos Floratos that is involved with international projects in the educational area of more than 10 years. He is a computer engineer with various postgraduate studies and his hobby is the delivery of effective learning practices via ICT tools. He has been teaching this course to hundreds of participants from all over Europe.
