3rd TACCLE2 IST-course in Germany (27 – 31 March 2017)

TACCLE2 IST COURSE 2017: Creating your own e-learning content in school education and adult education

The course in Dillingen will combine theoretical input with practical examples and hands-on activities. An outcome of the training will be activities created by the participants that can be used in the classroom. Day one and two will focus on the planning of activities (choosing the right topic, time management, goals etc.). Day three and four will deal with the implementation of an activity (finding resources, selecting tools etc.). On the last day of the course the participants will learn about evaluating and assessing activities as well as present their results.

This course is aimed at more advanced users of ICT. Teachers who are already confident in using ICT to some degree.

There will be an option on the course for those teachers who are expected to introduce coding into their curriculum to work on this either individually or in a group.  They will follow the same overall programme as everyone else but extra support will be available if they choose this subject for their project.  Similarly, if there are enough teachers interested in coding as a topic, we can put in an additional  ‘taster’ workshop to show you how it can be fun and non-threatening – even if you have never coded before!

The course will be conducted in cooperation with the Academy for In-service Teachers Training and Personnel Development Dillingen. Teachers from Germany and Bavaria are welcome to participate, too. Because they are not eligible for a KA1 grant for a course in their own country, they should apply directly at the academy. Address see below.

Participation fee

895 Euro (full board en-suite accomodation in single rooms in the training institute + tuition and course materials). All meals and drinks are included. For covering the participation fee you can use Erasmus+ KA1 grant money if your school or institutions has received such funding (and if your not form Germany).

How to apply for KA1 grants? You cannot apply as an individual, it is your school who needs to apply based on the professionalisation needs of its team. This means a KA1 proposal should start from the ICT professionalisation needs of the teaching team and should propose the TACCLE courses as a way to take care of these needs. You could also apply for other ict-related courses in the same KA 1 grant application for going to an international conference such as BETT for example.

1. Contact your National Agency for details about KA1 and for the grant application form. Applications have to come from your school / institution and can cover several people for different courses or conferences for up to 2 years.
2. Pre-register for the course
3. Hand in your school’s grant application before February 2nd 2016
4. Let us know the result of your application in June

How to register when your institution has received KA1 grants? Of course you can also register when you get your funding from other sources than Erasmus+

1. Register by completing an on-line-form.
