Take a Teacher Development Course in Greece this summer with UDLnet

UDLnet (Universal Design for Learning), is organising a Summer School in Attica, Greece, from the 12-17th July this year. The course, ‘Teacher Competences fostering Inclusive Learning’ aims to make a positive impact on the development of students’ transversal competences, creativity, collaboration, and effective communication skills by promoting the use of real world, authentic learning activities.
 
Participants will be immersed in resource-based approaches of learning, interacting with a unique collection of open resources. These resources will not impose a fixed curriculum, but support the development of a model that can be customised to reflect location and culture.
 
Teachers will be trained to select appropriate, free ICT tools that suit their own needs in terms of planning, implementing and sharing pedagogical methods. A repertoire of online labs and experiments, and eLearning tools will be presented in the course, in combination with scheduled hands-on activities.
 
The course will strengthen its social cohesive and pan-European dimension by inviting participants to be part of a community of practice that will allow them to exchange and share ideas, experiences, concerns and educational resources with fellow teachers across Europe and introduce them to online learning repositories, portals and educational metadata.
 
The course will give participants the tools to deploy and integrate methods presented in the training sessions into their own everyday teaching practice. They will also be able to contribute their own techniques, and share them within a European community of teaching practice.
 
Participation in the Summer School can be funded via the ERASMUS+ Programme. The deadline for application is March 4, 2015 at 12:00 CET. Support will be offered by the course organisers on how to prepare your applications through a dedicated webinar.
