Pedagogical part:
- Development of e-learning content
- Good practices on different teaching methods: face-to-face, collaborative, mind mapping and work-based learning

Because the project promotes e-learning as modern educational pedagogy we are sharing free of charge the interactive resource created by project partner EDUFOR with the occasion of short term training event in Gressoney.
