A Brief Overview of Our Activities
Transnational Project Meetings
There will be three project meetings:
The initial meeting will take place in Biberach (Germany) in September 2017. Of each partner school there will be participating two representatives (key persons) including the headmaster. The initial goal will be to get to know the project partners and to match the information on the main conception of the project. In addition, the visiting project partners will have the possibility to get acquainted with the German stakeholders and to get a first impression on the working methods of the pedagogical staff at Wieland-Gymnasium participating in short-term job shadowing.
The midterm meeting will be hold in Riga (Latvia) in September 2018. Two representatives (key persons) of all partner schools will take part in the conference; the partners will provide interim reports and first results of questionnaires and feedback; visiting partners will participate in job shadowing exploring different approaches and exchanging new ideas; the results of the job shadowing will be recorded and uploaded on the project website.
The final meeting will take place in Świdnica (Poland) in June 2019. Of each partner school there will be two representatives (key persons). Apart from another round of short-term job shadowing, the main goal of the final meeting will be the presentation of the results obtained from the monitoring and evaluation activities and the way of proceeding with the dissemination in all partner countries (e.g. planning and preparing of teacher training programs); together the partners will prepare a draft of the final report.
Learning, Teaching and Training Activities
Preparing students for the working environment in the European Union implies the putting into practise of the European idea starting with the schools. If we want to improve the employability of our students, we must provide them with a wide range of possibilities for their course of action. The activities planned for our project include teachers, students and educational partners of five European countries. By presenting, modifying and improving teaching and training activities we create examples of best practise that can be of use at schools all over Europe. Learning from students and teachers from other countries will widen their perspectives and understanding of different cultures, develop their problem-solving skills, improve their communication abilities, their language and their intercultural competence.
