Course Description

We are organizing this European teacher training event in collaboration with the Open Discovery Space (ODS) Academy to offer teachers from around Europe the opportunity to explore how our gameful approaches το learning can catalyse innovation in education.

How can we foster creativity in education?

How can we use student-engaging games in this effort?

How can we, as educators, design learning activities to this end?

How can we involve our students as creative agents in this design?

Are you interested in creativity and games in learning? Join us! Together we will be exploring synergies of creativity and digital games in today’s schools, co-designing educational activities together with you, with your own professional context in mind. 

Training for teachers and other school education staff

All training activities of the “Creativity and games” course aim to familiarize school educators from various subject areas with concepts and examples of practice related to game-based learning as a vehicle for promoting creativity in education, including creative thinking, in and around schools, in the intersection of formal and informal learning activities (curricular, cross-curricular, extra-curricular). In this way, the training activities aim to inspire participants to become creative practitioners in their professional settings.

Your participation in our professional development activities can be funded through the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission, as part of mobility projects for school education staff under Key Action 1 ‘Learning Mobility of Individuals’.
