The training of the trainers in Germany, what do we expect?

On the 13th of May youth educators from Greece, Macedonia, Germany and Spain will travel to Frechen, Germany to attend the long-awaited training in Visual Thinking Strategies delivered by Angelika Jung, the VTS expert from the Institut Für Visuelle Bildung, Austria.

The main objective of the training is to prepare the youth educators from partner organizations to apply the VTS technique in teaching activities with their students. Being the experience the very best way to learn, the 5 days long training will be eminently practical.

Our educators and teachers are excited about the upcoming training. They have already heard quite a lot about the innovative VTS method and its benefits and now are willing to learn more about its application and put it in practice in their work very soon. The educators expect to use VTS techniques to develop and practice communication and self-confidence skills with their young students as well as foster tolerance and respect for others’ opinions and beliefs.

The project Visualize: An innovative training concept for strengthening the tolerance and soft skills of young people, addresses especially these skills by equipping the youngsters with tolerance and overall soft skills by looking at art and responding to each others comments.

This project has been funded with support from the European Commission. This publication reflects the views only of the author, and the Commission cannot be held responsible for any use which may be made of the information contained therein.
