  • Greenskills4vet project meeting, Linz, May 2018

Transnational Meeting n°4

greenskills 498

 

For their fourth and last transnational meeting, the Greenskills4VET partners met at the BFI vocational training institute (Berufsförderungsinstitut) in Linz, Austria, at the end of the month of May (28th-30th May). This seminar dealt with the final phase of the Greenskills4VET project. During the first part of the meeting, European partners presented their ongoing and forecast dissemination plans through a variety of tools: publications, communications, conferences, press releases and social media. All partners presented the content of their Open Educational Resources (OER) while Greek, German and Bulgarian partners (German-Hellenic Chamber of Industry and Commerce, ASPETE and WETCO) discussed in detail their didactical and methodological supports for the use of their OER online in their respective countries and targeted industry. Partners agreed on the choice of a Creative Common Attribution Share-Alike (CC BY SA) License in order to share and disseminate the OER built for Health Care and Transport and Logistics workers more easily. The second part of the meeting dealt the modalities and limits implied by the translation of these educational resources in different languages (i.e. considering, the regulatory differences between member states, questioning the relevance of the example used in each OER). ASPETE partners presented their OER, giving further details to other European partners about the practical use of WebQuests in education in sustainable development before all the partners exchanged about the complementary information needed to use the OER and evaluate the learners’ skills (narrative for teachers, lessons learned, content, methods, material, duration) but also to improve it (feedbacks from silent partners and students).

 

 

  • Greenskills4vet project meeting, Thessaloniki, 24 and 25 October 2017

Transnational Meeting n°3

Thessalonique

 

From 24 to 25 October 2017, European partners in the Greenskills4VET project met in Thessaloniki for the project’s third transnational seminar.

Participants came from the following institutions: Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences (Germany); Universität Kassel (Germany) ; Centre d’Etudes et de Recherche sur les Qualifications (France) ; Berüförerunginstitut Oberösterreich (Trade union Institute, Austria) ; School of Pedagogical and Technological Education (Greece) ; German Hellenic Chamber of Industry and Commerce – Department Northern Greece (Greece) ; SdrujenieKolejzarabotnicheskoobuchenie (Trade union Institute, Bulgaria).

The objective of the seminar was to establish a conceptual and methodological framework for the design of Open Educational Resources for green skills development in Logistics (EQF level 5 and French NQF level III). Debates focused on pedagogical questions raised by the development of these skills, and particularly around the notion oflearner-centered learning.

Partners also raised terminological issues relating to  the adoption of a common language (as an example:  which term to use between “modules”, “sequences” or “units”?). The Greek partner (School of Pedagogical and Technological Education – ASPETE) and his German counterpart (Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences) presented innovative teaching methods usingWebquests(online questionnaires).

Finally, communication tools (posters, website, etc.) were improved with the help of Marion Massi, Céreq’s head of Communication.

 

  • Greenskills4vet project meeting, Marseille, 24 and 26 April 2017

Transnational Meeting n° 2

Vieux Port cadre

 

From 24 to 26 April 2017, the European partners in the Greenskills4VET project met in Marseille for the project’s second transnational seminar. This second seminar saw the presentation of different theoretical approaches to the notion of education in sustainable development. The School of Pedagogical and Technological Education introduced the German Curriculum Framework in Education for Sustainable Development and outlined  a specimen curriculum for healthcare occupations based on this reference framework. This outline was further clarified and put into broader perspective by juxtaposition with various European and national certification frameworks. In the second part of the seminar, work groups were set up in order to define precisely the modalities of curriculum construction and the levels of certification on which the partners are going to work in the next stage of the project, as well as the occupations on which the project is focused (healthcare, transport and logistics). Another session, finally, was given over to communications, IT tools and a plan for dissemination of the project’s findings.
