In the selection of project participants there are three decisive factors to consider.
1. Who are the colleagues really in need of training so that the institution develops along the 6 areas of development?
2. Which staff members are most able to implement the new skills and knowledge in the daily educational practices of the school?
3. What is the level of English competency of the colleagues? Obviously the participants must be able to actively take part in the international courses to meet the short term and long term expectations of the school.
We expect that the project enhances dynamic development, especially along the 6 main fields.
The expected short-term benefits:
• improvement in management skills (fast and effective problem-solving and decision making, enhanced team work, improved quality development)
• widening our international network (more short-term international projects via eTwinning, student mobility projects, job-shadowing with partner institutions)
• more confident language skills of educational staff to enable them to take part in international projects
• complex international projects that involve more than one subject areas and make students more involved and motivated
• more effective use of our ICT tools, conscious planning and design in digital development
• building more digital classrooms
• as a result of digital technology in the classroom, lessons become more dynamic and effective, students more active, involved and motivated in their studies
• encouraging and strengthening discovery and experiment in natural sciences (more international projects in natural sciences, more extracurricular workshops, more experiments and practice within the daily lessons)
• strengthening stress management of educational staff, developing emotional intelligence
The long term benefits make our school more competitive. As a result, the institution reacts faster and more effectively to challenges from inside and outside the school’s environment. Our educational model develops and the range of courses we offer become wider. Students are prepared in a balanced but dynamically developing environment. As a result, they receive the best possible in education and are enabled to take part in top standard higher education and build bright future careers. The period they spend in our educational institution help them realise that knowledge is value and power, and learning is a wonderful experience and a life long process.
