From 31st of January to 1st of February 2018 the 2nd EPA.L. of Trikala hosted in Trikala (Greece) partners from Italy (EURO Association and ITET Girolamo Caruso), Romania (Liceul Tehnologic Agricol Barcanest) and Slovenia (Ljudska univerza Velenje) attending to the second transnational meeting of the Erasmus+ project “Flip2Learn”, financed by the IT National Agency INDIRE under the Key Action 2 “Cooperation for Innovation and Exchange of good practices”, Action Type 205 “Strategic Partnership for School Education”.
Since the main priority of the project is promoting the acquisition of skills and competences through innovative practices and methods, F2L aims to develop a joint trial among project partners of the “flipped learning” approach in higher education STEM disciplines.
The meeting started with a guided tour inside the school and its laboratories. The participants of the program had the opportunity to meet teachers and pupils who participate in other European programs and they exchange different point of views. Experiences and new ideas in the field of flipped learning and the basic methodology of the project were presented.
Emphasis was given to the design and the implementation of the three Intellectual Outputs: the F2L Online Community, the Local Experimentation in Schools involved in the project and the F2L Etoolkit.
Also, they were determined
- the dates for the next meeting in Alcamo – Italy, where twenty-four teachers from all the participating countries will be trained;
- the sectors / courses on which the training will be done;
- the online course of flipping the classroom that everyone has to attend before the meeting
At the end of the meeting, it was clarified what tasks each partner should do for the next meeting in Alcamo, Italy (16-20 April 2018).
The meeting closed with a visit to the holy monasteries of Meteora, which are included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
