Start date: Jul 1, 2016, End date: Jun 30, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Escuela Oficial de Idiomas (EOI) de Collado Villalba is a language school for students aged 14+. Our Project aims to improve its teaching staff’s methodological, digital competence, the school´s managerial/leadership competences, and its European dimension.Six plurilingual teachers will take part in seven training activities, some of which will combine different mobility options:1. Training Course and Job Shadowing (12 days in Besançon, France): Using the web 2.0 and digital whiteboards2. Training Course (12 days in Manchester, United Kingdom): Using videos and images in the classroom3. Training Course (5 days in Oxford, United Kingdom) Development of creativity in the classroom4. Training Course (5 days in Vichy, France) Development of drama techniques5. Training activity (3 days in Tallinn, Estonia): Participation in an International Teaching Conference. Lecture on Good Teaching in our school based on the European Language Portfolio6. Job Shadowing and guided teaching (5 days in Parnu, Estonia), right after the activity listed above: Project-based instruction7. Course with school visits (7 days in Helsinki, Finland): Excellence in methodologyAn Erasmus Plus Committee was created in our school in September 2016. It welcomed all teachers in our school willing to join efforts to develop this project. Within the Committee, different work groups analyzed our teachers and students´ needs (C.1.3.), established a working calendar, wrote the project text, chose training mobility options, and established the process to determine the eligibility criteria for participating teachers. This project is supported by all our staff and the School Board. The mobility activities we have planned will supply teachers with specific competences that will be widely spread both in and out the educational institution thanks to a Dissemination Plan (See I.2). On the one hand, participating teachers in each activity will not only implement the acquired knowledge in the classroom but they will also train non-participating teachers in in-service sessions. This will aim to upgrade the methodological curricular approach adopted by our educational institution. On the other hand, our school will disseminate the project results. Furthermore, it will organize Dissemination Sessions in collaboration with other institutions.Participants in the Project will also establish professional connections that will contribute to the European dimension of our school, allowing for professional exchange and the development of interculturalism. The Project will provide our school with experience managing a European program, which will lead to the necessary grounds that will eventually enable our internationalization through the development of a KA2 and a job shadowing project.The supervision tools established in our project (questionnaires, meetings, or reports) will be used to assess and monitor the development of participants’ work plans, project goals achievements, and the project results obtained. (See H and I.3.)Our project will have a long-lasting direct impact on participating teachers and non-participating staff, students, educational authorities, and on the cultural offer in the Western Madrid area.
