The teachers’ training of the foRMAtion project was held online between 16-20 November 2020. The event was co-organized by HETFA, Universidade NOVA de Lisboa and Corvinus University of Budapest. The aim of the 5-day-long virtual event was to prepare teachers and professors from partner universities to teach the foRMAtion international module by familiarizing them to the curriculum and the teaching material. The modules will empower university students to get acquainted with the knowledge, skills and competencies necessary for the successful development and management of EU and internationally funded research, innovation and education projects.

The event consisted of the introduction of dedicated lessons from each module (altogether 4), the testing of the methodologies as well as daily reflections. The activity resulted in skill and knowledge development of teachers empowering them to get familiar with non-formal educational methods and supporting that they will not only use this knowledge during the teaching of the curriculum but also in other courses.

In addition to the teachers from partner universities, Research Performing Organizations and the Members of the Advisory Board participated the event. The partnership received valuable comments, suggestions and ideas for the further improvement of IO2 and IO3.

The training gave opportunity to test the modules before the 2020/2021 Spring Semester begins. Therefore, the partnership will build in the results of the training and feedback from participants for the finalization of the international curriculum and the teaching material in order to make these outputs tailored to the needs of each university.
