3rd Transnational Project Meeting

3rd Transnational Project Meeting

Jagiellonian University organized in Kraków the 3rd Transnational Project Meeting between June 20th and 24th, 2022. It was the first face-to-face meeting of the GivingCare project team. Team Members assessed the project’s progress and analyze what has been achieved and what still needs to be done.

Since IO2 is still in progress, it was crucial to present the results of the Continuous Education Program Pilot. All partners analyzed the different implementations in each country and considered the pre and post surveys that the students completed. The analysis of the surveys was necessary to improve the second phase of the pilot.

Ljubljana University was responsible for monitoring the IO2. They prepared a presentation to contribute to the analysis of IO2 documents (in the final stage of development).

Intelectual Output 2 – GivingCare Educational Materials

  • A2.1- Toolkit/Manual for students
  • A2.2- Educative Resources for teachers
  • A2.3- Distance learning materials,

In the second part of the meeting, under the responsibility of the Jagiellonian University, were defined more concrete plans for carrying out the activities of IO3- Guides for Personal.

Intelectual Output 3 – Guides for Personal

  • A3.1- Supportive manual for Personal
  • A3.2 – Good practices guide for caring
  • A3.3 – Storytelling Videos

Eurocarers presented a document titled “How to take care of who cares” during the meeting, with essential bullet points for the development of A3.2. In addition, filmesmente presented the sketch and screenplay for the videos that will introduce each of the modules and will be used as a promotion and dissemination tool for the GivingCare Project.

We also discussed the project’s financial balance and received feedback from the agency on the Interim report during the meeting.

The 3rd Transnational Project Meeting played a crucial role in monitoring the progress of IO2 and IO3 activities, as well as reviewing and improving implementation plans and agreed-upon deadlines.

2nd Transnational Project Meeting

The 2nd Transnational Project Meeting was initial designed to be held at Ljubljana University. However, having attention to the pandemic, the GivingCare Project’s Second Official International this meeting was held via Zoom call. This meeting took place on July 12th at 15:00 (Lisbon time) and marked the transition from Output 1 to Output 2.

Meeting Agenda

  • Informations
  • Review of the Output 1
  • Transition to Output 2
  • Task distribution and calendarization
  • Other subjects

During the meeting, the GivingCare project team took the opportunity to take stock of the work accomplished so far. One of the most significant achievements was the definition of the Continuous Education Programme, which consists of six modules, each worth 1 ECTS, divided into 32 sub-modules. The process to reach this result was long and involved several steps that the team had to carry out meticulously:

  1. Definition of the structure draft of the Continuous Education Programme
  2. Co-desing of the Continuous Education Programme
  3. Validation of the final version of the Continuous Education Programme

Firstly, the team had to conduct an in-depth analysis of the existing resources and materials available for the development of the programme. With this in mind, the team conducted this analysis to identify gaps and deficiencies that required addressing in the program.

Afterward, the team identified the specific topics that each module would cover and worked on the structure of the sub-modules, ensuring that each one would align with the overall goals of the project.

Finally, the team reviewed and refined the programme, ensuring that it was comprehensive, relevant, and aligned with the latest research and best practices in the field of care-giving. The quality and depth of the programme reflected the team’s dedication and hard work, indicating its potential positive impact on the personal and professional lives of caregivers and personal assistants.

Intelectual Output 2 – GivingCare Educational Materials

Furthermore, we have the IO2 – GivingCare Educational Materials. The 2nd Output, which will be led by Ljubljana University, will consist of:

  • Creation of a toolkit / manual for students
  • Creation of educative resources for teachers
  • Implementation of the pilot course in each institution (around January 2022)
  • Creation of long distance materials

In conclusion, the working method for IO2 was defined during this 2nd Transnational Project Meeting. Specifically, each partner will choose either one complete module or 5-6 sub-modules and propose a program in English.
