KA101- kooli töötajate õpiränne - «Uudishimulikke õpilasi õpetavad uudishimulikud õpetajad»
The project involved 3 teachers of English working with pupils of different levels and a German teacher whose target group are gymnasium students. They attended the structured courses in the UK and Austria. Teacher A was involved in the course" Österreich für jeden Geschmack" ( "Austria for every taste|") in Gratz, Teacher B took part in the course "Modern British Culture" in Oxford , teacher C participated in "Drama Techniques for the Classroom“ in Canterbury, teacher D took a course on "Creative Activities and Motivating Materials for the Secondary Classroom" in Dunfermline, Scotland. It is undeniable that the course partakers enhanced their English and German language skills, professional competences, developed teaching skills and obtained a lot of practical tools for teaching foreign languages. It resulted in students’ higher involvement and their better academic achievements in general. The lectures on the UK studies, workshops on classroom management and CLIL were included into the trainings. As a result, new materials were added to the course of British studies and lessons "Focus on Scotland" were introduced to the younger students of Sakala school and the students of after-school clubs conducted at our school. Moreover, sessions on drama and improvisation helped the teacher to improve students’ communication skills, self-confidence and effective interaction in class. The ideas obtained while studying in Austria encouraged the German teacher to use the resources from the course to make her lessons more efficient and entertaining. The project experience and practical approaches were used in carring out different extra-curricular events, festivals, contests and a summer camp. In addition, the course participants used the established contacts ( with the teachers from other countries, lecturers and host families) to exchange the ideas and discuss professional issues they face in their everyday work. Furthermore, the teachers introduced Estonia and inspired their new partners to visit our country and learn more about its culture. To sum up, sharing the gained experience and knowledge with the co-workers and various target groups, will hopefully make both language teaching and learning more beneficial.
