Few days for the training modules on project cycle management

We are working hard to meet the challenge of disseminating the training modules on project cycle management.

The partners implemented the six training modules out of an original concept of Paolo Brusa and Federica Cadeddu from Diciannove, then we tested them on our staff during a collective LTTA training event. After a precise evaluation about their share the pros-&-cons conducted by Dave Oborne from EEC, we re-worked them in order to maximize their efficacy in term of possible learners. The modules were divided among Diciannove, Danmar Computers, Cardet, EEC, University of Thessaly, KEA: we refreshed some slides; we modified others; we incorporated practical tips and suggestion; and we added notes to each slide to make them even more specific and exhaustive.

Then it came the time for the evaluation by the students of the University of Thessaly.

The last stage was run by Danmar Computers, who edited and refined them to be ready for the IT environment.

As we posted in the news, the Erasmus+ call 2018 is out, and we want to support the wider audience that will be interested in the development of new project ideas.

Three more days and you will find online the six training modules on Project Cycle Management in six languages: English, Italian, Polish, Greek, Dutch and French.
