On September 9th the StIPS had the pleasure of traveling to Cyprus for the second meeting of the EU CALLIOPE consortium  which is funded by the Lifelong Learning Program of the European Commission.

CALLIOPE (Communication for Adult Learning: Leveraging Innovative Options to Promote Effectiveness) aims to improve the communication abilities of trainers through the adoption of shared tools and innovative methodologies of public speaking.

The project includes a variety of partners representing six European countries:

The StIPS training focused on the basis rhetorical structures for building a presentation and on the practical do’s and don’ts when using Powerpoint. All partners presented a presentation for the group, received feedback and used that to improve their presentations.

Although the ‘boring highlight’ was a powerpoint presentations by Dr. Martin Luther King, the day was both practical and inspiring for all participants as well as the StIPS trainers Ida Hanson and Ruben Brunsveld.

Additional information about the CALLIOPE project, its results and partners are available on the project website
