Agile2Learn Pilot Course Empowers Teachers to Implement Agile Methodologies in the Classroom
A new teacher training course is empowering educators from four European countries (Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Italy) to implement agile methodologies in their classrooms, thanks to the Agile2Learn pilot course co-funded by the European Union. The Agile2Learn training course is divided into two phases and is designed to provide secondary school teachers with the knowledge and skills needed to adopt agile methodologies in their teaching practices.
The first phase of the Agile2Learn course began on November 28, 2022. During this phase, more than 60 participants are learning through a blended learning course about the competences that make up agility, including various agile methods and fundamentals, but also about agile teamwork, creativity, critical thinking, how to work with digital resources and many more. The course is being delivered through a series of interactive modules that include presentations, videos and activities that are designed to provide teachers with a comprehensive understanding of the principles of agile methodologies.
The second phase of the course is a practical stage that will begin in March 2023. During this stage, teachers will have the opportunity to put what they have learned into practice in their own classrooms. The practical stage is a key component of the Agile2Learn course, as it provides teachers with the opportunity to apply the principles of agile methodologies in real-world teaching situations.
The Agile2Learn course is a piloting program that is designed to help educators meet the challenges of teaching within a transforming society in the 21st century. The course is being delivered through a combination of online learning and practical experience, enabling teachers to learn at their own pace and apply their new knowledge in their own classrooms.
The European Union co-funds the Agile2Learn pilot course as part of its ERASMUS+ programme, which is an ongoing commitment to supporting education and training programs that promote innovation and enhance the quality of teaching and learning. The program is expected to have a significant impact on the way that secondary school teachers approach teaching and learning, and to provide a model for future teacher training programs around the world.
The project is organized by five European partner organisations: Consorzio Ro.Ma (IT), EPMA (CZ), Hellenic Open University (GR), University of Thessaly (GR) and Helliwood media & education (GER).
