Partnership for Media Education
Start date: Sep 1, 2014, End date: Aug 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The Partnership for Media Education is an innovative project that will bring together four adult education organisations - Together Luxembourg, Connect from Slovenia, Together Czech Republic and Rexlegis from Croatia. It will enable the organisations to share their experience and good practices and work strategically in the field of media education. The two-years co-operation will give an opportunity to create new and innovative practices and methodologies to teach adult learners how to work with media. There will be many activities included in the project. Firstly, partners will identify existing resources and know-how in the field of media education and make these available to the other partners. They will then use these to develop innovative set of non-formal education methodology to promote media education. This will be tested during two international seminars for 40 adult learners. These will take the form of a blended mobility. There will be intensive virtual preparation before the seminars. We will prepare one-on-one Skype conferences with the participants to prepare them. They will work together through an online collaborative workspace. There will also be interactive online quizzes and we will use social networks to prepare participants. This will be followed by a 7-days international seminar. This will include a variety of simulation and role game, practical workshops, presentations, discussions, small group and plenary sessions. After the seminar, the collaborative workspace and other activities will continue. We will also produce a newsletter. The methodology will be tested and evaluated during the first seminar and then improved and repeated again during the second seminar. There will be three partnership meetings between educational staff in the organisations. The Kick-Off Meeting in Slovenia will start the project and enable partners to exchange their existing resources. The Mid-Term Meeting in Czech Republic will help to evaluate the project in the middle and mainly to adapt the methodology after the first seminar. The Final Meeting in Luxembourg will serve to evaluate the project, finalise the tangible results, prepare the dissemination strategy and discuss follow-up projects. The result of the project will be new non-formal education methodology and innovative ICT tools to complement physical mobility. All of these will be made available to the public and widely disseminated to adult education organisations.
