Project Title Strengthening of didactic and linguistic skills of teaching staff, Development of innovative learning methodology, efficient use of ICT, launch and use of CLIL, internationalisation. 10th ecoMEDIAeurope Conference "Education & ICT – Where do Teachers go?" Project background The public Benedictine Stiftsgymnasium in St. Paul im Lavanttal is a secondary academic school (Secondary level I/ISCED 2/10-13 years and secondary level II/ISCED 3 & 4/14-17 years). The focus of our school is on the subjects of languages and natural sciences that are taught by our academically educated teachers using the latest cultural and teaching techniques. These are embedded in an implemented humanistic dimension. Project goals In accordance with our school development and in view of the individual feedback which is performed annually as well as the results of pedagogic diagnostics regarding school quality the project strives in the biennium 2015-2017 for the following goals for the subjects Biology, Chemistry, English, French, Geography, History, Computer Science and Italian: - Strengthening of didactic and linguistic skills of teaching staff; - Development of innovative learning methodology; - Launch and use of Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL – main focus English); - efficient use of ICT; - Internationalisation through linking new contacts and friendship; - Promotion of Lifelong Learning. Number of teachers and profiles Due to the existing demand in the branches of quality development and internationalisation six mobility measures are applied for: - Subjects English/French/Italian: Sending of three teachers for training activities (United Kingdom, French, Italy) - Subjects Computer Science: Sending of one teacher to the 10th ecoMEDIAeurope Conference "Education & ICT – Where do Teachers go?" (Croatia) - Subjects Biology and Chemistry/Geography and History: Sending of two teachers for training activities/CLIL methodology (United Kingdom) Description of activities We would like the elected teachers to implement all activities within the scope of the mobility programs that lead to an improvement of all methodological, language and cultural aspects of ICT and reinforcement of the European dimension of our school. Project implementation procedure Practical and logistic arrangements will be made in the organisational department. Before beginning of and during the mobility programs, telephone and email contact is available between the school, the travel agency, the meeting organizer and the educational institutions. If available, skype and social media can be used for communication. The teachers will carry their own E-Card together with an E111 health insurance certificate for travel abroad and a private health insurance policy card. Goals, expectations, quality criteria and educational agreements will be decided in advance by the teachers, the meeting organizer and the educational institutions. The elected teachers will be particularly informed about all subjects (task-related, intercultural, risk prevention). If necessary, a language course to refresh language skills will be arranged for the teachers and completed before departure. Cooperation between all project partners should lead to achievement of all goals. Short description of targeted results and effects as well as expected long-term benefit A pre-evaluation of the proposed results will already be carried out during the mobility programs by requiring feedback from the course organizer. Also, a language certificate exam for the affected subjects can be a further indicator of achievement of the goals. We will implement ad hoc instruments for teaching diagnostics, in order to ensure that the acquired knowledge is implemented in the curriculum in the following school years. Moreover, we will implement new experience into the school's educational plan and development strategy. We expect the participating teacher to implement in the lesson the acquired knowledge in all areas as an added value and to contribute to the enrichment of our school policy with an increased European dimension. Because a change in the class schedule for the CLIL subjects Biology, Chemistry, Geography and History is planned, this mobility program will have an important influence on the future strategic development of our teaching establishment. We expect the linked international contacts to lead to particularly interesting and cross-border cooperations and friendships. In conclusion, we hope that this project – in addition to all other educational strategic development measures – will lead to a continuous qualitative and quantitative improvement of our school.
