Divided into six core topics, the Diversity Management
course, developed by Auxilium
, is targeted at VET, CVET and adult learners, with a focus on everyday working life reflection and implementation. The module comprises general information such as diversity and its dimensions, how stereotypes turn to discrimination and how diversity is represented. Furthermore, the topic of diversity in organisations and teams as well as their development and equal opportunities is given space. With many practical examples and stimulation to engage with a diversity focus in everyday working life, learners are confronted with an active involvement.
The Diversity Management
module was piloted in German language in Austria, starting in June with 17 participants registered, interested in taking the course and willing to provide their feedback to the module. Pilot participants and learners expressed through their feedback how much they appreciated the course. To quote one remark: “The course is designed very interesting, well and clearly structured and provides the subject matter in well dosed portions
Over the course of July EDEN
has successfully finished the piloting of "The mobility guide on-line - Planning and management with ICT support
" course with 14 participants. Most participants tested all modules, but some were more interested in the project planning lessons only. About half of the participants formally evaluated the course. The overall feedback was positive, resulting in a "good" average score. The teacher contact appeared to be a bit weaker, most probably due to the quieter summer period, but even this aspect received "fair" scores in the evaluation. To demonstrate the learner satisfaction, one piloter commented that: "The course is very well developed, easy to follow and rich in useful information. Perhaps (simply as a bonus feature, not something that is essential or necessary) some written parts could have been converted into / replaced by / supplemented with short videos just to mix up the media used.
The main objective of the “Time management in online communities
” module is to be more efficient in our daily lives and work. There is not much use of reading about the latest innovations and updates if you don't implement them. If you are overwhelmed with your regular tasks, you have two options: allow that black hole of anxiety drag you down or take action to overcome the pressure. With this course Fondo Formación Euskadi
wanted to help their learners to become more productive, organised and efficient persons who are capable of managing themselves well.
Prioritise your tasks and learn not to procrastinate. Learn to discern between the essential and the irrelevant. Be capable of squeezing the most out of each hour of the day. Know and apply a method composed of strategies, techniques and abilities that can help you day to day. - This is what the first 15 Spanish piloters could learn from the “Time Management in online communities
” course in July in Bilbao. As it is an online course they were free to progress with the course in their own pace, and check out the recommend extra readings.
The “Digital Storytelling for Training
” module prepared by Universidade Aberta
(Portugal) took place in July and was offered online in Portuguese. It was attended by 25 trainees, working in diverse professional areas, from Portugal and Brazil. 21 piloters have successfully completed the whole module, that is focused on know-how and digital skills for creating digital storytelling to support training and education.
The course is innovative and focuses on know-how skills and interaction. The module was divided into five themes that were addressed weekly in a format that the organisers called Boot camp:
- What is Digital Storytelling?
- Licenses Creative Commons
- Tools for Digital Storytelling
The piloting students concluded the module with the development of a digital storytelling project for a training action, presenting their finished products at a face to face event dedicated to the theme in the presence of the trainers and an invited expert in the field.
