Καινοτόμες Προσεγγίσεις για τη Διδασκαλία του Θεωρητικού Μέρους των Μαθημάτων στην Εκπαίδευση Ενηλίκων
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

EEPEK (Epistimoniki Enosi gia tin Proothisi tis Ekpaideftikis Kainotomias), i.e. Scientific Association for the Promotion of Innovation in Education, is a Greek not-for-profit organization, whose members are education professionals from all levels of education. In this project EEPEK deals with the integration of modern educational tools in the field of adult education so that the teaching of the theoretical parts of the courses can be more intriguing and student-friendly. Additionally, the project aims at improving the digital educational skills and teaching approaches of adult educators as well as developing their professional and European profile. The project provides guidelines for effectively integrating modern educational technologies that utilize inquiry-based and collaborative learning. Additionally, the project emphasizes personalized learning by means of a hybrid learning environment that includes both in-class and distant learning. The project includes one training activity comprised of three mobility flows to Spain,Czech Republic and the UK. Participation in the mobility flows, is aiming at improving the abilities of the trainees to actively participate in seminars in a foreign language, as well as exchange ideas and experiences, and cooperate with fellow educators from other EU member countries. To this end, EEPEK members are expected to improve their key competences, strengthen their intercultural skills and act in an open, multi-cultural environment of internationalized education. The first mobility flow aims at fostering collaborative learning in adult education in order to realize a modern learning environment where in-class student collaboration will be complemented with digital collaborative tools (e.g. wikis, discussion forums, collaborative editing.) The second mobility flow deals with techniques and tools for differentiated learning, based on an asynchronous e-learning platform (e.g. moodle) that realizes a hybrid learning model (blended-learning) where students can take advantage of personalized learning tools and activities. Lastly, the third mobility flow delves into the design and implementation of educational scenarios that adopt the inquiry-based learning method, utilizing the digital collaborative and personalized learning tools of the first and second mobility flows. The project will produce educational material that will consist of prototype teaching plans, a set of recommended digital tools (mostly web 2.0), guidelines for their effective usage and evaluation results for a variety of innovative educational approaches. These results will be disseminated not only among EEPEK members but also to the vast educational community, in national and international level, through web articles, posts in well-known blogs, workshops, conferences as well as through the press and web 2.0 communication services (e.g. twitter, facebook). We expect that the project results will include teaching guidelines that can be of use to the Greek adult education schools and that their adoption can be a first step towards changing the way we value adult education institutions and schools.
