UNIQUE COURSES TO CHOOSE FROM
Blended Learning & Flipped Classroom
When we talk about the classical educational system (face to face system) we usually refer to teachers teaching in front of a classroom full of students. This seemed to work for many years, however, the digital age has brought a lot of challenges, requiring changes in our current educational systems. Over the past years educators have started increasingly incorporating innovative teaching & learning methods in their classrooms, one of them is the Blended learning approach.
Gamification and Augmented Reality in Education
The use of video games and augmented reality in education has become a major new trend. It comes from the idea that play holds an important role in student’s learning, and supports intellectual, emotional and social well-being. Gwen Dewar’s, Ph.D. research has shown that play can improve memory and stimulate the growth of the cerebral cortex, provide new ways for learner engagement in academic tasks as well as contribute to language skills development, and promote creative problem-solving.
Learning in Digital Age: Coding for Schools
Coding is becoming a basic literacy in the digital age. To be able to thrive in tomorrow’s society, young people must understand and be able to work with the technology around them. Education systems around the world now have a goal to provide students with new possibilities to design, create and express themselves with digital technologies, starting from the young age. There is no doubt that while not every student will choose a path to be programmer or computer scientists, having a basic knowledge of technology will create countless opportunities for them in the future.
Education for Sustainable Development (ESD)
“There are over 60 million teachers in the world – and each one is a key agent for bringing about the changes in lifestyles and systems we need. For this reason, innovative teacher education is an important part of education for a sustainable future.” (UNESCO, n.d.) Making the shift in education towards valuing sustainability is essential in terms of raising generations that will take actions and be the driving for environmental integrity, economic viability, and present as well as future generations with the respect to cultural diversity.
School-Based Experiential Outdoor Education
Research has shown that outdoor/adventure learning improves students’ self-awareness, self-control, self-responsibility, teamwork, community integration and general behavior at school. Students value the outdoor connection, the hands-on-approach and the relevance of the material. Thus, the main aim of the course is to introduce the concept of experiential learning through outdoor education allowing participants to create their own meaningful and engaging learning processes for their students.
Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) is an innovative approach to language teaching, where students are exposed to foreign language while learning the content of other subjects such as history, geography, science, etc. There are many benefits of using CLIL in the classroom – cultural awareness, internationalization, language competence, preparation for both study and working life and increased motivation – are just a few of it.
The Power of Educational Coaching
Teaching nowadays is becoming more and more demanding. Educators have a task of providing students with 21st century skills and engaging them in learning while facing challenges on how to organize learning to a large number of students with diverse needs. New innovative tools and approaches are becoming the trend to meet the needs of educators and students however it is getting difficult to follow them and choose the most suitable ones.
Mindfulness for Educators
Educators who practice mindfulness are much more likely to be more resilient to stress and more attentive, resulting in students having more positive learning experience. Mindfulness helps educators to connect with students at a deeper level, creating more compassionate classrooms and enabling them to better meet students’ academic and personal needs.

Many European member states have adopted important measures to build more inclusive education systems and to guarantee the right of all children to education without discrimination. In practice, however, authorities at national and local level do not always abide by their obligations and often yield to pressure from different sources, including from school administrations, teachers and other professionals and from families. This course aims at raising awareness of inclusive education both at the administrative level (School principals, head teachers, etc.) as well as promoting parental participation in the school.
Early school leaving (ESL) is one of the major challenges in education policy within the European Union. ESL is not only an obstacle to general economic growth and employment but also it also one of the reasons of poverty and social exclusion. Young dropouts are much likely to lack skills and qualifications, which leads to difficulties in entering and staying in labour market – working in low-skilled and often unstable jobs. Thus, the training course will focus on early school leaving (ESL) reasons and consequences, existing strategies, policies and measures to combat ESL as well as support teachers and student learning.
Skills of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) are becoming an increasingly important part in today’s society. STEAM-related careers are some of the fastest growing and best paid of the 21st century, and they often have the greatest potential for job growth.
Creating a solid STEAM foundation through an integrated curriculum is the best way to ensure that students are exposed to science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics throughout their educational career. It is also important for educators to have a skill set allowing them to inform students on STEAM careers prospects, motivate them and to support them.

In response to rapid changes in technology and methodologies of teaching tools, there is a need for radical change to take place for ICT to be fully exploited in teaching and learning. As stated in “Survey of schools: ICT in Education” teachers still believe that insufficient ICT equipment is the biggest obstacle to ICT use in many countries. However, teacher training in ICT is rarely compulsory and most teachers devote spare time to private study. Thus this 5 days training course is focused to provide the most important information and hands on practical tools that are needed for educators.

Mismatch between educational system and labour market is a challenging issue and in practice, this means ‘introducing business governance into schools, proper careers advice with direct links to business, and measuring the success of schools and universities based on the employment outcomes of pupils’. Hence, this important and universal challenge can be solved not only through the changes of study processes, but also with the help of proactive initiatives, such us traineeship (volunteering/work placement). This is where the role of Erasmus+ coordinators and officers as well as career advisors in educational institutions becomes crucial.
