The European Commission offers grants for courses listed in their Comenius/Grundtvig course database, covering course fee, travel & subsistence. With the application deadline of 15 January approaching rapidly, we would like to draw your attention to some courses the non-profit organization Let's Learn IT has to offer.
- Moodle at School: Installing & Deploying a Course Management System for Language Teachers (BE-2010-128-003)
This one week course, which takes place in Athens, Greece, from 11 - 18 July 2010, will give you everything you need to know in order to not only install but also configure and manage your own Moodle Course Management System. Additionally, you will also learn how to effectively implement all of its features in your daily teaching practice.
- Tools for teachers: New Media & Web 2.0 Applications (BE-2010-130-003)
This one week course, which takes place in Ghent, Belgium, from 25 July – 1 August 2010, will give you an overview of many New Media applications (such as Blogs, Wikis, social networks, etc), and will show you how you can effectively implement all of their features in your daily teaching practice. Having completed this course, you will be able to create improved learning materials that will appeal to young & IT-savvy students.
- Training for the Future - Improving Education with Blogs & Wikis (BE-2010-131-003)
This course takes place in Ghent, Belgium, from 22 – 29 August 2010, and will focus on blogs and wikis, which (whether combined with audio, photo or video environments or not) allow students to put peer teaching and reviewing into practice in a relatively simple way. Some blogs and wikis can be set up for free in a matter of minutes, allowing you to focus on content rather than technicalities. Of course the focus does not have to be on writing activities or writing skills - listening and speaking skills can be practiced, too.
