StIPS gives training to EU consortium

The international consortium CALLIOPE, a project co-funded by the European Commission through the Lifelong Learning Program (Grundtvig), met in Stockholm on 17/18 June for the second meeting of the project.

The Stockholm Institute For Public Speaking hosted the project partners who flew to Sweden from Italy, Greece, Finland and Cyprus to advance project implementation. Partners shared experiences and practices on innovative communication methodologies and their effectiveness from the point of view of end-users and trainers in Adult Learning, confronting each other and sharing their personal experience getting involved in practical public speaking exercises.

The consortium also tested Prezi, a new support tool to create and deliver dynamic presentations. Partners experimented with the new tool and created their own presentations under the guidance of two experts from Mr Prezident that flew in from Amsterdam especially for this training. In addition, partners agreed on the structure and content of the new multilingual website for the project

The meeting in Stockholm took place in the urban environment of Coffice at Södermalm. The participants analyzed speeches and made their own presentations in record time. MECEPUS from Cyprus provided them with a template to be able to handle impromptu speeches in any situation. After the training there was time for relaxation, drinks and dinner while enjoying the scenery at Mosebacke and at the traditional Swedsih restaurant Pelikan.

Calliope main aim is to improve the communication and delivery mechanisms of Adult Learning solutions to ultimately align AL to the evolving nature of training, ever-changing working and professional environments. CALLIOPE aims to improve the capacity of AL trainers to effectively structure and package key messages (ultimately, how to deliver training) so as to enhance the efficacy and impact of learning on end users.

The Grundtvig program aims to facilitate exchanges of experiences between institutions in different EU Member States. But the meeting in Stockholm proved that it does more then that. It creates bonds between people and enhances mutual understanding.
