New Educations publishes its Course and Guide for Developing Transversal Skills of Students

The New Educations Guide and Course for Developing Transversal Skills of Students are the main, complementary, tangible and transferable outcomes of the New Educations project.
The New Educations Methodological Guide is a guide of good practices, elaborated by all the nine partners of the project, to support the teaching and learning of the following New Educations:

  • Education for peace
  • Health education
  • Education for development
  • Entrepreneurial education
  • Education for democracy
  • Civic education
  • Ecological education
  • Education for media and communication
  • Education for leisure

The Guide contains the necessary methodological guidelines for activities for each of those theme as well as examples of good implementation. In this guide, the project furthermore aims to demonstrate also the importance of each education for developing transversal skills to students.
The Guide is available to all partners in an innovative electronic form as a didactic material for future activities with students/children/youngsters and for developing transversal skills at future generations and for continuous training of teachers/trainers. Results from activities in digital format - videos/recordings/audios/brochures/posters/pictures etc. - are included in the guide wherever these are relevant and available.

The New Educations Course provides the theoretical and pedagogical background that teachers and educators of all levels and of all subjects can use to try and work with the New Educations approach for teaching and learning transversal skills. In this course you will find a theoretical introduction to each of the nine domains of the New Educations. Each introduction provides a justification for the domain that was selected, an overview of specifically the skills and competences that are being addressed in the domain, and an overview of the methodologies that support these. 
The course handbook follows the structure of the nine domains: each chapter is dedicated to one of these themes. The chapter starts with a theoretical reflection and motivation and then describes learning objectives, the skills addressed and a possible methodological approach. Where relevant the Course refers directly to the Guide for examples, clarifications or very specific concrete guidelines. The Course refers also directly to the Activities that are directly related as an example or application for the domain. Each workshop has a defined objective, time allocation, list of resources needed to implement the activity, an evaluation of the impact of the activities and a conclusion with a tangible and non-tangible result. The activity descriptions in the Guide can be used and/or adapted to serve as your lesson plans or merely as inspiration.
