From 30 to 31 March, the partnership met in Turkey, hosted by Pamukkale University, for the second international meeting.

Based on what was defined during the November Workshop, the partners discussed the final aspects of the manuals, "Digital VET Trainer in Agriculture" and the manual "Digital Traineeship in Agriculture". In particular, it was decided how the contents of these project outcomes could be transformed into video lessons for the MOOC and International Training planned for the project.

Therefore, the structure of the MOOC was defined and the partners set deadlines: from June until September, the organisations will record the lessons and produce the subtitles of the video lessons. This choice was functional in order to respond to technical and linguistic obstacles that might arise during the International Training in September, which will instead be streamed. By providing participants with a platform on which they can possibly catch up on lessons they have missed, they are guaranteed to complete their training.

The Turkish welcome was remarkable and moments of work were accompanied by others of informal discussion and sharing of local traditions.

 

From 7 to 11 November, the Digital Farmer International Workshop was held in Naples. It was a moment of confrontation between different expertise and minds to discuss all together two of the project outputs: the manual "Digital VET Trainer in Agriculture" and the manual "Digital Traineeship in Agriculture". While the fist one will focus on digital tools for teaching in agriculture, the second has to do with digital innovations in agriculture and how to implement distance learning traineeships. Specifically, the partners defined how to structure the chapters, what kind of content to include and what insights to make the manuals as accessible and valuable as possible to educators, trainers and VET providers. Finally, they defined the next steps to be taken, i.e. how and where to implement digital traineeships.
