Dates: 25 November – 3 December 2017

Application deadline: 31st August 2017
This is a 9-month blended-learning project (combining distance and on-location training) that has been set up to address all the unprocessed, unspoken and unresolved issues and β€hot potatoesβ€ that repeatedly emerge during Erasmus+ mobilities.
Improve the competences of youth trainers/learning facilitators in areas which are typically left untouched in training processes, so that they can develop and offer high quality learning projects to their organizations’ learners, while employing principles of Intercultural Dialogue to do so. And at the same time, using an innovative, blended learning format in order to engage the participants and achieve as much a greater learning impact as possible.
Improve trainer competences on successful Learning Design when developing, leading/facilitating and evaluating training projects, with a special focus on the particular qualities, values, ethics and style which are typically missed in other training-of-trainer courses
Share good practices (and deconstruct bad practices) of Learning Design in order to improve the quality of mobility activities offered through Erasmus+ and other local initiatives in the partner organizations’ countries
Explore observations, experiences and emotions which remain unprocessed and become “hot potatoes” during training mobilities, so that the participants can learn to identify and deal with them in their future work
Advance the participants’ knowledge and skills on how the principles of Intercultural Dialogue can support the learning process
Allow the participants time and space to receive feedback from their peers on their learning design competences
Formulate, together with the participants, a Model Evaluation Questionnaire that will serve as a necessary step of any future projects the partner organizations will undertake and serve as a tool for any other European organization that wishes to use it
Advance the participants’ knowledge and skills in using online educational platforms and distant learning tools in their work
Eight (8) countries will be represented in this project, with 3 participants each. The 24 participants of LeaDiP will be aged 22 years and above, they will already have a role as a youth trainer, youth worker, project manager or trainer of trainers and they will be interested in advancing their skills in line with the course objectives. They will also be willing to engage fully in the blended learning format of the project.
One of the project’s key products will be a Model Evaluation Questionnaire that will address and measure the quality of the participants’ work (and the work of other trainers) in future trainings. This Questionnaire may become a key tool in evaluating future projects funded through Erasmus+.
