1st Joint Staff training 10-14 December 2017
The first joint staff training event was organised by Fondazione Collegio San Carlo in collaboration with Comune di Modena and held in December 2017 in Modena, Italy. The theme of the event was Principles of Philosophy and Creative thinking
The training took place over a period of five days and focused on focuses on developing a common understanding of key principles of philosophy and creative thinking.
The training included exploring and discussing these key principles and theories and on the application of these through practical activities and exercises.
Staff took part in several tasks in class and outside of the classroom, simulating tasks and activities that pupils would take part in to develop their understanding of philosophical topics. These included the role of the city and community, the necessity of trade and worked collaboratively to illustrate the city through their eyes.
The school visit on day 3 to Modena Est was of particular interest to the partners.
The staff were very welcoming and allowed the group to observe class lessons, meet the children, talk to staff and ask lots of questions!
The final day focused primarily on developing an action plan for cascading and implementing the skills, knowledge and learning experience back into the project partner countries.
