Between 18th and 22nd of March 2019, DIAL team and its volunteers gathered in Turkey, Ankara, to test teaching materials that have been created during 2018. The meeting was successful, as the staff members presented all of the materials including the Moodle platform and everyone was able to comment on the materials and their development.

The meeting was hosted by Turkish partner “System and Generation”. Each project partner invited several volunteers who are either already working in the area of adult education or are willing to devote themselves to the project and senior integration in the digital society as such. The aim of the meeting – to test all four module materials – Communication and Collaboration, Internet, Hardware and Computer Essentials – was fully reached, even the Moodle platform was presented by Cyprus partner, which gave everyone the opportunity to see the platform from a teacher’s point of view.

After each module’s and Moodle’s presentation, everyone present could express their thoughts on the pros and cons of the materials in order to improve the guidelines before the final partner meeting in Portugal. During April, the partners will make slight improvements of the materials and translate them into national languages, so that in Portugal seniors would be able to study in their national languages for better results.

During the meeting, project’s progress, plans and further actions were discussed between the project’s management team. One of the training days was observed by a representative of the local Turkish National Agency.

After the trainings, everyone went on cultural visits around Ankara and Beybazar, enjoying local markets, museums, mosques, cuisine and more.
