Sharing experiences between centralized Erasmus+ projects
We participated in a meeting of centralised Erasmus+ projects, organised in Ljubljana by the Slovenian national agency CMEPIUS. A number of project coordinators and partners gathered to share experiences and outcomes related to developing and implementing innovative learning and teaching practices. It was an engaging discussion since different organizations that are directly or indirectly involved in education and training (e.g. universities and schools, chambers of commerce, associations of higher education institutions, research institutes) presented their projects, their approaches and the challenges they are facing.
PEOPLE project highlighted the benefits and impact of our people-centred learning approach, the added value of interdisciplinary university-industry cooperation and the different ways in which social sciences and humanities can contribute towards the development of innovative products and services. Workshop participants were interested to find out more about concrete actions that PEOPLE is implementing towards enhancing the involvement of industry in education processes. We shared our most recent newsletters and received an especially positive feedback!
