|Despite the fact that the pandemic also hit the country hard during the last months of 2020, ENAIP Veneto focused on the development of the INTERMOVE Network. The Italian organisation worked hard to adapt the learning materials developed in IO1 and IO2 to a digital environment and successfully built up an online training called « INTERMOVE FOR TRAINERS – Intercomprensione ed Interculturalità per formatori, docenti, coordinatori di mobilità », a 15 hour course mixing interactive and exciting sessions.
ENAIP Veneto engaged 21 participants among teachers, language teachers, trainers, mobility coordinators, representing more than 10 national stakeholders.
For the first time, Daniela and Alessio played the role of IC facilitators, supported by IFOA’s senior partners of the project, and arranged IC classes adapting contents to distance learning, mixing traditional teaching methodology with Interactive web-based tools, such as Mentimeter and Jamboard, videos, online games, cooperative activities.
Alessio enthusiastically said: “Although a plurilingual group is sometime an added value when working with intercomprehension, the group of Italian participants was very motivated and collaborative: everyone grasped perfectly the potential of the modules and embraced the INTERMOVE philosophy! ».
As proved by the encouraging results of the final evaluation session, all the participants requested further insights on the topic and showed their will to collaborate in the future.
This first round of training for third-organisations has been a success we are proud of and grateful for, considering the tough time Italian VET centres and schools were going through
