trening za trenere i razmjena znanja

Training for trainers, exchange of expertise on innovative media for youth engagement and empowerment

Co-Funded by the European Union

Activity one on our project, Training for trainers, was implemented in two modules, one of which took place in Zagreb and the other in Brussels. Activity one was meant to increase our trainers capacities and strengthen our cooperation.


In March, our two trainers from Zagreb traveled to Brussels for a two day education on digital course creation, organised by our partners, U Thrive Europe. The weather was nice, and the learning environment even nicer. Tatiana gave us a three day education in which she taught us a lot about the pedagogy itself and the ways to approach the teaching, as well as how to create an online course. It was both educational and informative. We also enjoyed some nice lunches and sightseeing in Brussels.

The training in Zagreb started on Monday, 25 April. The first to go was Andreana with her lecture on civic engagement. We focused on the importance of conveying the message about the necessity of civic engagement to the future participants on our project. Day two started with Tatiana's lecture about debate as a means of persuasion. The subject was so interesting that we skipped lunch and had a mock debate in the afternoon. On the day three Aida gave us the first part of her lecture about the emotional inteligence. We discovered certain stuff about ourselves that we didn't know before, and learned a lot about how the human brain works.


In the afternoon Tana, our guest lecturer on the day, did a few drama games and exercises with us, again opening our eyes to new ideas and methods of work for on the project. On day four we continued our education in emotional intelligence with lots of discussion. During the second part of the day Romana held a very interesting lecture about drama and we even had a chance to go through various improvisational techniques. 


The training for trainers successfully prepared mentors from both organisations to work with the iACT project participants as well as for successful cooperation during the duration of the project.
