The training course instructional document is a fundamental tool for the adaptation and upscaling of the methodology “Creative Audiovisual Writing and Reading”. It will be addressed to the partners who will run the pilot action in each country involved, but also to other organizations potentially interested in testing the methodology in their own context.
It will be developed in English and localized in Italian, Spanish, Greek, Croatian and Lithuanian.
Special emphasis is put on the structure of the blended course for teachers and trainers, where the instructional design model is analysed. In addition, the methodology “Creative Audiovisual Writing and Reading” is also provided.
The learning outcomes detailed are structural elements and a critical factor for the effectiveness of the curricula. The instructional document also includes a set of templates created in the context of the CrAL project to be used in order to ensure maximum uniformity of style and quality of the content produced and uploaded to the project platform.
The main learning outcomes of the Creative Audiovisual Lab will have an impact on both teacher and students.
Teachers will have:
• acquired an innovative methodology based on audiovisual education which can be integrated into their daily work with students
• learned how to channel students’ creativity into a process of self-awareness, construction of their own identity and role in the society
• acquired transversal skills to foster inclusive and constructive group dynamics, essential for the creation of a collective artistic product
• Improved or acquired digital skills
Students will have:
• acquired technical and transversal skills needed to produce audiovisual content
• become active players in the production of media content on selected topics
• acquired skills such as active communication, collaboration, creativity, problem solving, critical thinking and self-confidence
• acquired greater awareness of themselves and their social context and self-confidence
• understood the potential of audiovisual language as a tool for interpreting the world around them and artistic expression.
The Instructional document will be available in May 2021.
The training materials that will be produced for the course will be mainly video lessons developed and recorded by the partners, interviews with role models, additional reading materials and assignements. They will be uploaded on the project platform and will be available for free use. The training materails will be online by February 2022, when the blended course will start.
The CrAL Online Platform will contain CrAL educators training modules’ content. It will also host the CrAL community of practice (teachers, trainers, parents, local community members) and showcase the audiovisual content (films) developed by the young people during the pilot action. The first version of the Platform will be online in December 2021.
The piloting guidelines will contain all the steps necessary to apply the CrAL methodology at local level with selected teachers, trainers and young people. They will define how to select participants, how to train teachers and trainers, how to set up the workshops for young people, how to involve the local community, what are the main content of the methodology and how to perform evaluation. They will be publically available to organisations potentially interested to apply the CrAL methodology. The Piloting guidelines will be available in March 2022.
During their participation in the Creative Audiovisual Lab, young people will produce audiovisual contents (films) that will be subtitled in English and showcased on the CrAL platform. They will be projected locally at dedicated events, and will participate in the national and international video contests. These films will be available from March 2023 onwards.
This report will summarise and assess the experience from the Creative Audiovisual Labs in schools and non-formal educational settings. It will be public and will contain lessons learned from the experimentation, and will be available in July 2023.
This document will follow the Impact Assessment report and will summarise the experience with a view to providing policy recommendations based on it. It will be available in July 2023.
