Do you have a great idea for an innovative European Project on transforming education, fit for a technology-driven world? Whether it is in higher education, school or vocational education and training, adult education, youth or sport: get ready to set up your European project proposal and benefit from EU funding from the Erasmus+ programme.
Mark Wednesday 27 and Thursday 28 November 2019 in your agenda. The ReSET Task Force is delighted to invite you to the fifth edition of the Project Development Workshop (PDW), to take place in Brussels. The PDW is a unique occasion to convene with institutions, civil society organisations and providers active in the field of education and training, with the aim of building consortia for the next Erasmus+ call for applications.
Find European partners for your next project
The topic of this year’s PDW is transforming education for a technology-driven world. Under that umbrella we distinguished four subtopics that can serve as an anchor point for your project idea!
- Teaching digital skills
Reaching the 2020 horizon, 43% of Europeans still lack the digital skills needed to fully participate in our technology-driven societies. This is why, in this context, the acquisition of these key competences requires innovative approaches that allow reaching out to all groups in our societies, improving accessibility, having a bigger impact and empowering users.
- Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL)
How to incorporate the emerging new learning technologies in a way that actually enhances learning outcomes and contributes to efficient and effective education. Thus, what we need is practical solutions, taking a realistic approach. This might include a number of areas, such as adaptive learning, e-learning, learning through simulations, etc.
- Lifelong learning/employability
We need to make it possible for people to remain employable, relevant and capable, as society develops and transforms our jobs, business models and society itself, with a speed that has turned it into a high-risk society for many people. The question is therefore how to enhance and support education and training, as well as non-formal and informal learning throughout life.
- Boosting social inclusion
By using technology and learning analytics it becomes possible to distinguish between different needs and tailor education for every pupil and student and allow everyone the chance to excel. This may include remedial measures (e.g. helping students individually), differentiating measures (e.g. variations in learning material and lesson approaches), compensatory measures (such as a allowing pupils to use extra technology), and dispensing measures (allow exemptions).
Why come to Brussels?
Do you have an innovative idea for a European project based on the above or in general about transforming educating? To be eligible for EU funding from the Erasmus+ programme, you must work together with European partners. Because they are not always easy to find, we organise this project development workshop where you will develop a project proposal with international partners.
How does it work?
Are you interested in participating in this workshop? Are you eligible?
- Do you have a clear project idea and can your organisation free a person, the time and resources to be project coordinator of an international Erasmus+ project?
- Is your project idea linked to transforming education?
- Are you available to come to Brussels on 27 and 28 November 2019, and are you prepared to lead a project development round table with interested international partners?
Is the answer to all three questions yes? Then send us your Erasmus + (KA2, KA3 and Sport) project idea before the 19th of August by clicking the link or by sending the attached form to email@example.com . Projects for higher education, compulsory education, vocational education and training, adult education, youth or sport are eligible.
You will be notified in the first week of September 2019 whether your project idea has been selected to participate in the project development workshop. Then we will distribute the best project ideas among potential partners. Interested partners will be able to sign up for the project development workshop and project leaders will select themselves the best partners for their project. An e-confirmation of participation will be sent in October.
This event is a co-organisation of EARLALL, the Liaison Agency Flanders-Europe (VLEVA), Central Denmark EU Office, NorthDenmark EU-Office, South Denmark European Office, Région Île-de-France and West-Finland European Office. It will take place at VLEVA, Avenue de Cortenbergh 71, 1000 Brussels.
Do you want to be a project leader? Please send us your project idea before the 19th of August. The workshop will take place on 27 and 28 November 20190.
