Delivery Guidelines

In order to get the most out of this digital learning product, both students and teachers, have an important role. The facilitators must animate the session in order to help students to reflect, take decisions and reach the right conclusions.

Teachers should have further knowledge about the skills that appear in the content so that learners can ask questions and receive expert support and feedback from the teachers, to get to know everything in more detail.

The professional uses the educational product on a projector during the sessions. The skills can be worked on in the given order or depending on the needs of the group, the professional can choose an ad hoc learning path and a different order.

As learners progress through the content, the teacher should ask questions to stimulate reflection on their own as individuals or as a group. This way, we help the students to feel satisfied and proud that they have reached the conclusion with no direct explanation from the professional.

It should be kept in mind that these are not theoretical sessions of passive listening, instead we imagine students to be proactive.
