Report on dissemination at Slow Fish, Genoa 19/05/2017

On 19th May 2017 Ipssa Nino Bergese organised a dissemination session at Slow Fish,an event promoted by the Slow Food Movement which aims at raising awareness on healthy eating habits, local fish-based dishes and sustainable fishing techniques. The busy event provided an excellent opportunity to present the Unity in Diversity project to students and teachers from Italian and foreign schools, tourists and common people. The students from Nino Bergese, after gaining detailed information on the project and its contents during class discussion, brought it to the attention of the event partcipants who were actively involved in the dissemination process and appeared interested in  the work which has been done so far.

Dissemination of new project for participants of international research camp ŠPIC at Ekonomska šola Murska Sobota, Višja strokovna šola

On Thursday, 11 May 2017, the participants of the international research camp ŠPIC attended the presentation of the new project »Unity in Diversity«. The students and their mentors who take part in the research camp ŠPIC come from Croatia, Macedonia, Russia, Serbia and other Slovenian higher vocational schools. First I briefly introduced the previous project »Key Skills for Hotel Industry Staff« so that they could easier understand the new project »Language skills and intercultural issues in the hospitality industry: unity in diversity in the EU labour market«. I showed them tasks and texts for A2/B1 and B2/C1 language level and they found the interactive maps especially interesting. Then I continued with the material that has been prepared in the new project so far and is available on the new platform. I presented them tasks in different languages so that they could see the variety of languages and explained that the old platform offered 12 languages but the new platform already offers four more, 16 altogether. They found it very useful that different language levels are available – from A1 to C1. I also mentioned that the platform from the previous project and all the material created are accessible free for anyone who wants to learn a new language or improve their language skills as well as for students, teachers, people employed in the hotel industry or tourists. And the new platform will also have free access for anyone interested. I also gave them leaflets about the project to find more information and contact data.

Project dissemination for teachers from Spain at Ekonomska šola Murska Sobota, Higher vocational school

On 8 May 2017 teachers from the northern part of Spain visited our school. They are teachers at different VET schools offering differing programs of different levels. They were especially interested in entrepreneurship at our school – how it is taught, what students learn and what support they get. I took the opportunity to present the new EU project »Language skills and intercultural issues in the hospitality industry: unity in diversity in the EU labour market«. I explained that the new project is a follow-up of the previous EU project »Key Skills for Hotel Industry Staff« which finished in autumn 2016. Before presenting the new project I showed them the results of the previous project as it was easier to understand what both projects are about.  Then I showed them the new e-platform and explained how it already differs from the old one – with four new European languages (CZ, LT, SE, TR) beside the other 12 European languages already available (DE, EN, ES, FR, GR, HR, HU, IT, LV, RO, RU, SI). I told them that all the study material and exercises for the A2/B1 language level is almost available in the new languages as well. Moreover, the B2/C1 level is already richer for 30 case studies for all modules; there are 9 intercultural ready and all partners have started working on the country case studies, video material and face-to-face tasks. Furthermore, there will be a new language course for A1 level in all 16 European languages. I mentioned that the e-platform is available to anybody interested in languages and can be accessed by anyone who wants to learn or improve their language skills. And I emphasized that access to the platform is free. Before we finished I showed them where and how to register on the Moodle e-platform so that they could use the study material and do the exercises.
