In the beginning of sunny October a group of teachers from 7 different European countries were sitting in a terrace of Baida convent, embraced by a spectacular view to the mountains, having all of Palermo under their feet and were telling stories. Stories about their teaching methods, about their students, their personal stories and stories for social change.
Stories about their teaching methods, about their students, their personal stories and stories for social change.
Storytelling, together with other non-formal techniques, were introduced to teachers of secondary schools during the CARMA European Workshop for Collaborative Competences for Teachers organised and hosted by CESIE in Palermo. The European Workshop, as a part of the CARMA project, was aimed to support teachers in developing their skills and knowledge in collaborative practices providing theory and practical experience on how to use the range of non-formal learning techniques and the Reciprocal Maieutic Approach (RMA) as an assessment tool with their students in the classroom and within the school environment.
