Despite the pandemic, the project implemented all the planned results of the intellectual outputs IO1 – IO5. Additional materials for these tasks, which were not previously expected, were also produced. The epidemic hampered the tasks related to ME to a large extent, as restrictions and lockdown in schools made it practically impossible to promote results in these units. The epidemic also made it impossible to organize partner meetings, and apart from the first organizational meeting in Warsaw and the second in Vicenza. The remaining meetings were held in a remote formula on the MS Teams platform.
Detailed results of individual IOs are listed below, together with a description of the results extending the previous assumptions. All the results planned in the project were prepared in four language versions: English, Polish, Italian and Lithuanian. However, additional products that were not provided for in the project in two language versions: English and Polish.
IO1: Creation of courses programs – implemented in accordance with the project assumptions; innovative curricula were developed based on the most modern construction technologies in the following professions: drywall fitter, plumber and tiler. The innovativeness of the manuals is also emphasized by the development of a collection of instructional videos that illustrate the practical rules of performing works for the above-mentioned professions.
IO2: Creation of courses methodology – carried out in accordance with the project assumptions; a methodology was developed that takes into account innovative multimedia technologies in the implementation of curricula, along with a system for assessing the acquisition of professional knowledge by training participants.
