This output refers to the research and evaluation analysis of educational and training needs for the specific sector in order to structure and organized well the Training, the Guidebook and the Webportal. The overall objective is to combine the appropriate structure of the above with the needs of the target group(s).
Analysis of the structure of the Guidebook, the Training and the Web-portal. Discussions will be held among the partners in order to formulate recommendations as regards to the content and the specifications of the above. After the kick-off meeting in Cyprus (Month 2), Research and Educational Centre Mansion Rakičan, the activity leading organization will draft the Analysis Plan, which will be sent to all partners for feedback. The leading organization will collect the recommendations and finalize the Analysis Report for the Guidebook, the Training and the Portal.

Creative learning needs creative teaching. The partners are expected to develop innovative methods to train-the trainers based on consultation and inclusion in the task of all relevant stakeholders. To this end the alternative pedagogical methodology will improve both the curriculum design for VET students of fine arts and the trainers’ knowledge and training and interpersonal skills.
The alternative pedagogical methodology and “Train the Trainers” Guidebook that will be developed under the InArt2DiverCity refer to Fine Arts trainers. However, the methodology and can be transferable to educators of different disciplines as well as to other cultural professionals, who will be given the opportunity to improve their pedagogical capabilities and develop the skills needed both to cooperate and, more directly, to communicate and interact.
Reseach on the Alternative Pedagogical Methodology. At the core of this project is the promotion of European values through an alternative pedagogical methodology in teaching cultural heritage which will eventually safeguard freedom, democracy and equality, as well as the respect for human rights, including the rights of persons belonging to minorities. The aspired result of this learning process is the creation of a methodology which can produce knowledge through the multi-cultural experience of other peoples’ art and on a second stage through the observation of artistic expression in open-team exhibitions. The alternative pedagogical methodology will be based on Experiential Learning theory which can also help in developing skills for teachers based on their observations.
Cultural competence is a key factor in enabling both trainers to be effective with students from different cultures and students to learn and build on the varying cultural and community norms. A set of new skills will be developed that will enhance competency, supporting their different needs and background and learning time. A new focus on creativity in relation to its importance in innovation and cultural education in relation to both individual identity and promoting intercultural understanding will be enhanced in the proposed training activities, in order to enable arts and culture curriculum to fulfil the diverse and wide-ranging aims.

Development of the guide book with alternative training practices. Based on the above research, the guidebook will be based on identification of needs and the needs analysis report, the developments of experiential learning and the promotion of a European cultural
The guidebook will work as a set of universal guidelines for the teaching of Art in VET with examples of good practices in VET education in Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Spain, and Slovenia while at the focus it will hold the advancement of cultural awareness and safeguard diversity.
21st Century societies are increasingly demanding workforces that are creative, flexible, adaptable and innovative and education systems need to evolve with these shifting conditions. This output aims to enable art trainees to learn and to put in practice both accumulated and new knowledge acquired through experiential theory.
Essential for the project is the idea of “smart culture”. The intention is to propose ways in which Principles of Cultural Heritage can be taught through ICT tools contributing to the idea of a smart culture. The use of Information and Communication technologies will be put to practice through the development of a Cultural Heritage web platform which would invite trainees to upload their work, trainers to share good practices and the public to post cultural experiences which can lead to the rise of cultural awareness between these countries. The training programme will be addressed to young fine arts students. However, the methodology and part of the content can be transferable to young artists of all disciplines.
Development of the training content. Training context will draw on existing literature in the Principles of Cultural Heritage but will have in mind three principles. The context will be devised around the axis of the three main values of cultural diversity which are democracy, freedom and justice. Present context will be examined to identify whether it corresponds to the needs of VET young art professionals in the respective countries and it will seek to promote specific paradigms in the Cultural Heritage which advance a European cultural identity.
Creation of a lexicon. The lexicon serves to demonstrate how important artefacts and accomplishments in the Cultural Heritage Sector if viewed and examined together can promote awareness and identify ruptures and common features according to the time period. The lexicon will be used as secondary teaching material for trainers but also as a source of information for the public. It will be uploaded on an open-access platform and it will focus around the main Principles of Cultural Heritage of the respective countries and how these can be parallelised.
The partners will create an e-community/database, where all the training material/tools will be available.
The InArt2DiverCity web-platform will form part of the whole training course development, a meaningful learning tool will be developed to create e-learning courses and e-learning contents, collecting the learning material used for the project including:
The InART2DiverCity web-platform will be designed for young artists to gradually construct, through a collaborative process and digital creative tools, a deeper understanding of each other’s cultural values and shared perspectives on global issues of our time.
It aims to enhance the innovative use of arts and creativity as an expressive and communicational tool, promote cultural communication at an international level, familiarize young people with visual literacy and visual communication and mobilize youth communities with creative online learning.
A very first version is to be provided by P1 – European Office of Cyprus simultaneously with the development of the training modules, for collecting the e-learning materials.
Development of a Beta version of the Platform, to be used during Train the Trainers (O3)
Final release of the platform, aligned with the final release of the whole Training Course (O3)
Creation of a community, gathered through social media and used for the dissemination of the project
