HUPE Split Branch meeting

Dear colleagues,

The last HUPE Split Branch meeting in the school year 2021/2022 will take place on Moday, 27th June2022, at 11:00 a.m. at Osnovna škola Sućidar, Perivoj Ane Roje 1, Split.

Agenda:

  1. Davorka Bronzić, Nataša Bebić Bačan & Marina Marega Selecki: 

Erasmus+ project “BETTER TOGETHER”, Elementary school Župa dubrovačka, Mlini 

As educators, we are all aware of the fact that including the collaborative learning, tolerance, and equality for all, as well as the intercultural dimension in our curriculum and everyday practice is a must to improve the 21st century skills of our pupils and staff.

The main goal of this project presentation is to raise awareness among our colleagues that the knowledge and skills needed for life in the 21st century are acquired from an early age and that most of those skills cannot be learned from a textbook.

The student-centred project activities presented in this talk will help the participants in preparing and delivering their lessons as well as in planning and designing their own everyday school activities gathered around the two main topics:

  • Cultural and intercultural awareness
  • European values of tolerance and equality

The participants will also have the opportunity to ask questions about the Erasmus+ programme in general.

  1. Ivana Bokavšek & Miranda Barac: London is always a great idea!

This workshop is intended to disseminate the results of the professional development course for Croatian teachers of English that was held in London in April 2022 and was organised by HUPE (Croatian Association of Teachers of English) with the support of AZOO (Education and Teacher Training Agency). The participants will be taken on a tour of London, enjoying its landmarks, and learning about its history and culture through various interactive activities. No matter how many times you've already been there, we hope that you will join us because London is always a great idea and an amazing city to explore!

HUPE Osijek Branch meeting invitation

Dear colleagues,

I would like to invite you to our third HUPE Osijek Branch meeting for this school year, which will take place on Saturday, May 21, 2022 at 9 am at the Faculty of Education in Osijek (Fakultet za odgojne i obrazovne znanosti, Ulica cara Hadrijana 10, Osijek).

Agenda:

1) Ivana Štiglec: Teaching culture through engaging and interactive learning scenarios

In order to develop our students’ intercultural communication competence and to make sure that one day they will be able to interact with people from other cultures and act as global citizens we need to design meaningful, engaging and interactive lessons that will motivate students and develop a sense of wonder for both other cultures and their own culture. EFL classrooms are an ideal place to do so and this presentation will demonstrate how using various activity types, web tools and different information sources can help create cultural lessons that will exude enthusiasm and engagement among your students.

2) Lidija Šaravanja & Ivana Marinić: How to teach Gen Alpha?

Do we understand how and why things in our classrooms change significantly from time to time? There is a theory called the Strauss–Howe generational theory based on the research of American society. It was conducted by demographers and social scientists and the results can be applied by educators, parents, psychologists and anthropologists as well as many other interested parties. The aim of the presentation is to raise awareness about the characteristics of the generations in our classrooms and to provide some examples on how to address them and help them develop the skills they will need throughout their lives.

3) Teacher training course in London
