    • GOALS 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Learning materials already developed for teacher trainees within the Comenius project named “FACE IT” will be disseminated. Mixed groups of teachers from several European countries transform these learning materials into teaching material that can be used by their pupils. The materials developed by the course participants will be brought together as online teaching materials, including a teachers’ guide and bundled into an e-book, that will be published online. Course participants will learn how to work within a digital community (called moodle), where they can upload the materials developed and share their experiences of usage. The most important meaning of this course is to enhance the mobility of teachers and to give the teachers tools to work with the European Dimension in education in Europe. By working together in mixed European groups, producing teaching materials together, the European Dimension in schools will be improved and international collaboration between schools will be promoted and stimulated. A spin-off effect of participating in this VoiceS course is to become a member of the "European Teacher" network of universities and schools. LANGUAGE OF INSTRUCTION The courses will be taught in English. OUTCOME A group of 4 teachers will work internationally together and create international teaching material as well as a teachers’ guide to be transformed into an e-book. 3
