Product Type teaching material
The draft training material was designed as a support to the trainers who conducted the pilot training courses in DE, EL, AT and FR. Thus it contributed to the successful realisation of the pilot training and ensured a widely standardised and comparable approach to the training in all the four countries.
The material developed within the project was never intended to cover all subjects/ contents foreseen by the curriculum, but had the purpose to provide trainers with an indication/ example/ idea of how the training material could be developed.
The training material was developed in support to the pilot training course, which took place in the countries DE, AT, EL and FR. This basic configuration of training material consists mainly in power point slides on the subjects covered by the curriculum as well as case studies that were used during training, but also as assessment tool after training.
The training material was used in all four countries during the pilot training, however, some minor customisation of the material took place in Greece and a bit more in France, as the French pilot training was set up as blended learning course, involving e-learning units as well as face-to-face units.
As the content provided on the training material was evaluated as appropriate by the majority of the participants, no modifications were made to the final training material, apart from some minor revisions/ proof-reading. So there is no significant difference between R06 and R13.
The only thing, which the participants in the training partially criticised, was that the training material consisted mainly in ppt-slides. They would have preferred a more interactive training material using a different medium. However, this would have gone beyond the project duration and scope. Developing pedagogically and didactically sophisticated material using interactive media in line with the engAGEnt curriculum would have been a project of its own and is considered by the partners as one of the follow on activities of the engAGEnt project.
The revised training material was translated into all languages of the project (EN, DE, FR, EL, BG) - see R15
