2nd Training of Trainers took place in Sweden, Gothenburg. The participants represented each partners organization: AGACA, ICOS, LLKC, ARIS Formazione, SNRSS and Changemaker AB.
Main goal of the workshop was to increase the knowledge of Moodle Learning Platform and its usability for trainers. The trainees were well-prepared, highly motivated and full of enthusiasm. Moodle is a free and open-source software learning management system. Every partner is expected to prepare his own customized platform. The platform will provide the learners access to training materials prepared by trainers from each organization (see more in the article out Training content). That is way it was really important to listen carefully what our more experienced mentors form ChangeMakers AB have to say about Moodle Platform and other IT tools.
Important part of the visit was also the meeting with local stakeholders. The participants had the opportunity to meet with representatives of Grow Gothenburg project and talk about idea of urban farming. Grow Gothenburg platform helps to connect urban farmers and develop the urban farming idea.
The sustainable urban farming was also the main idea for Jernbruket Vedgrill & Ol . The cooperative hires people who for some reasons have difficulties with finding a job. They can work in three areas: gardening, catering & food making or in conference organization. At the present time there are 70 people working in cooperative.
In the end all the participant were fully prepared for organizing the pilot sessions in every partner’s country. During the pilot session local stakeholders and trainers will be able to test Moodle Learning Platform and to judge the results of our work and among the others the results of workshop in Gothenburg. We’ll keep you posted!
