Intercultural Dialogue: A Holistic Approach to Drama, Storytelling and Video Making Techniques was an Erasmus+ KA2 project for the exchange of good practices related to the use of these disciplines in the education of adults.

 

The main aim was to group organisations across Europe working in the field of adult education and share innovative practices of teaching intercultural dialogue to adults, using drama, storytelling and video making techniques.

 

Project objectives

The main objectives of the project were: 

  • to share best practices among project partners
  • to increase professional development of adult educators
  • to collect and develop methods of intercultural dialogue
  • to develop and reinforce EU networks for teaching and learning
  • to enrich partnership of adult education providers in partners' countries and Europe
  • to support social and educational value of European cultural heritage.

This project focused on intercultural dialogue, to be taught using innovative methods involving the use of drama, storytelling and video making. The participants in this project were members of staff, trainers and educators from the participating organisations, who could on one side share the best teaching methodologies applied by the respective organisation, but also take part in the trainings as learners and develop new skills and competences, benefiting not only themselves but the partner organisations in the wider sense, including related networks.

Because each partner brought different expertise, that made for a holistic approach to adult education that combined different disciplines such as drama, storytelling and video making.

Participants in the training had also the tasks to organise local activities with adult learners in their local communities, to use the methods and techniques learnt during the project and to improve the curriculum offer of each partner organisation.

 

Project activities

The concrete activities in the project included:

  • the organisation of 3 transnational project meetings
  •  the organisation of 2 short term joint staff training events
  • the organisation of 2 local activities per each partner after the international training events
  • the creation of a handbook which is a collection of best practices, theoretical and practical activities that can be used in adult education

The handbook will be shared by partners throughout their networks and will remain a point of reference for the partner organisations and adult education providers. They will be able to use the materials and adapt it to their own practice.

 

Project results

The intangible results of this project were:

  • acquisition of new competences and ICT skills for educators in the partners' organisations
  • exchange of didactic experience among staff at international level
  • enhanced intercultural competences for the staff and learners
  • development of a lifelong learning network of partners and other stakeholders involved at the local, national and EU level
  • increased EU project management competences

 

 The tangible results were:

 

Project learning materials are available online on the project Facebook page and will be available to download free of charge.

We are pleased to share the main outcome of this project, a handbook containing theoretical and methodological materials related to the use of drama, storytelling and video making in education. The handbook (PDF) can also be accessed on the Sirius Training website.

 

Erasmus+. This project is funded by the European Union.
