Project dissemination for lecturers of higher vocational college

On 28 June 2018 I prepared the dissemination of the European project »Language skills and intercultural issues in the hospitality industry: unity in diversity in the EU labour market« for the lecturers of the higher vocational college at Ekonomska šola Murska Sobota, Višja strokovna šola. I shortly presented the project, project partners, and then went on to presenting the Moodle e-learning platform as the most important outcome of the project. First, I presented the language course A2/B1, available in 16 European languages, showed them material, and tasks in English and German. I also prepared some solved tasks to show them how the system corrects and grades the tasks and gives feedback to the user. They especially liked the interactive maps with all the detailed information. Then I presented the B2/C1 language course and explained the idea of it by showing different material and tasks so they could see the difference to A2/B1. As we, among others, offer the module “accounting” for students at the college, the module “Financial management” on the platform seemed quite interesting and useful for those lecturers. In addition, other lecturers could find materials relating to their subjects. I finished with the language course A1, also available in 16 European languages. I stressed that all the modules come with audio and/or video material, which is important when developing listening and speaking skills. I also emphasized that the e-learning platform will be accessible free, without any payment, to anyone who is interested in learning, improving or just checking foreign language skills. The basic idea is, of course, teachers use it in class with classical methods but also individual use by students or people working in the tourism sector. Before we finished I showed them how to register on the platform so that the lecturers can use it once the platform will be available to the public.

Dissemination in Nida, June 23-24, 2018

On June 23-24, 2018 Deimantė Vilčinskaitė from Vilnius Business College disseminated Unity in Diversity project in Nida Culture and Information Centre, Nida, Lithuania. There was an event “Let’s get acquainted”, where people from various countries had an informal discussion, during which local people communicated with student guests from countries like Nigeria, Pakistan, Ghana and Azerbaijan. They discussed national celebrations and traditions, sang Lithuanian songs. Foreign students were very happy about the warm welcome, praised the nature of the Curonian Spit and Lithuanian St. John’s day.

During all these activities UID project was introduced and demonstrated to the students. They were glad to hear that such online tools are being created and said that it should attract the younger IT-minded generation to learning languages in a new and engaging way.
