First steps towards inclusive video education

Youth4Media is a partner organisation in the capacity building project „Inclusive Digital Video Training in Youth Work„ (InDVT). The very first personal meeting of the consortium took place on 3rd February 2017, in Münster.

The project meeting gathered the representatives of 5 European organisations: Student Computer Art Society (SCAS) and National Student Information and Career Center (NSICC), from Bulgaria, Werft22 from Switzerland, Czech University of Life Sciences Prague, Faculty of Economics and Management from the Czech Republic and Youth4Media. The group of managers discussed the main goals of the project and the certain steps of its successful implementation.

The aim of this long-term European project is to increase the capacity of youth workers and trainers in inclusive digital video training, suitable for youth non-formal education, via development of training materials and organizing exchange of experience activities. The project proposes concise methodology for the selection of digital video resources for non-formal inclusive youth education.

To summarize, the main project products/activities are the following:

  • Methodology for selecting digital video for inclusive purposes;
  • Online Learning Management System with training materials and practical cases suitable for youth workers/trainers;
  • Training of youth workers (capacity building workshop in Sofia, Bulgaria).

The representatives of the consortium discussed the flow of the project, the partners’ tasks and responsibilities. After the clarification of the financial issues and the closure of the day by Mr. Rosen Petkov (SCAS, the main applicant), the managers could find some time to discover Münster’s old city centre and enjoy a traditional German dinner together.

The next meeting is going to take place in the beginning of April, in Baden, Switzerland, providing the opportunity to visit the event Play to learn.
