WeCommit project meeting in Canakkale
Winter is here and our team is currently attending the last transnational project meetings of the year. At the begining of the month our colleagues attended the WeCommit project meeting in Canakkale, Turkey. It was a great opportunity to meet the team, discuss project progress and next steps.
The WeCommit project aims to ensure a continuous participation of students in classes, which it will achieve by “ … increasing the commitment of students by acknowledging them with the importance of their expression skills on humanitarian topics for their future career, and by observing and reflecting on their behaviour in class. Active discussions and class interactivity develop students’ social skills, positive behaviours, and capabilities— all those crucial for future citizens. Students need a supportive surrounding and a safe learning environment in which they can socialize and build communication and expression skills.“
During the meeting our team also visited, together with the project partners, local schools in Canakkale and great insights about the educational system were given through interesting discussions with the directors of the schools. Overall, it was a successfull project meeting and we are looking foward to the end results of this project.
