The meeting, which was attended by Polish, Italian, Basque and Hungarian delegations, took stock of the work done so far before the final phase of the project would begin.Since 2019, teachers from partner schools have been trained in active learning methods, with a focus on the flipped classroom method, and have shared the knowledge they gained with colleagues in their own schools and more widely in other VET institutions. They then used the methods and tools they had learnt to draw up learning units and lesson plans which will be tested in practice with the students in the final phase of the project. At the meeting, the schools reported in detail on where they are at with this work and the education developer partners discussed how they would evaluate the test lessons in schools from now till next spring.
The project aims to make available all the teaching materials, exercises and lesson plans developed within the project on its website for anyone interested, who can freely use them in their own teaching.
The meeting concluded with a visit to the facilities of the Goierri Eskola, the school workshop, where students can learn the basics of welding, for example, on a simulation tool before the real workshop work, and the IKASLAN Centre where vocational students spend their practical training in real-life conditions and do real work for the companies that support the institution.
