Michał Drozdowski – “Understanding Autism Spectrum Disorders- Introduction and Interventions”

Between the 24th and 28th of July 2017, I participated in an Erasmus course in Italy. The course dealt with various aspects of inclusive education and was organised  within Erasmus + Mobility for the teaching-staff programme.

The course was organised by Shipcon Limassol Ltd and its main objective was  working with students with Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome. We worked in the following areas:

– understanding of autism ( theory of mind, repetitive and obsessive behaviours, main learning problems of autistic students);

– sensory disorders and their influence on behaviour and  the learning process;

– visual understanding of the world and the importance of visual communication;

– students with sensory disorders and their working environment;

– understanding difficult behaviours and  methods for overcoming them;

– risky behaviours of students with ASD and the ways to minimise them;

– the significance of structural methods while working with ASD students.

The course was led by a highly professional specialist with over 20 years of experience in working with ASD people in Great Britain. We had a chance to work in small groups where we discussed specific cases and situations. We exchanged our experiences as teachers which was really useful  and helped me understand how autistic students are taught in other countries.

The course was a wonderful occasion to learn about various different  methods of working with special-educational-needs students. It was a place of rewarding exchanges  of views which made me understand how teachers from different countries deal with and solve specific problems which they meet in everyday work with SEN students.

School staff mobility – a training course in Oxford

Anna Biela-Różańska –  “Programmes for teachers of students with Special Educational Needs”

Between  the 14th of September and the 25th of September 2018 I participated in an Erasmus+ Mobility course in Great Britain. The course was directed at teachers working with students with special educational needs (SEN). Teaching children with SEN and  inclusive education were the main issues of the course.

The course ‘ Programmes for teachers of students with Special Educational Needs’ was organised by Oxford International Study Centre and was divided into two parts:

The first part – methodical and special education one:

–  dealt with the problems of teaching children and young adults with SEN, behaviour disorders, autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, hearing difficulties, visual impairment and dyslexia.  That part included a presentation of  the PECT (Picture Exchange Communication System ) model.

In the second part of the course we discussed some new  methods of teaching a foreign language.

Improving the four language skills – reading, writing, listening and speaking was the main objective of this part of the course.

The training course was carried out by highly qualified teachers of English as well as teachers working with SEN students in the Oxfordshire district.

The participants came from Poland, Italy and China. We had  the  opportunity to see how children and young adults with various disabilities are taught in British inclusive and special schools.  For those of us working in similar schools in our countries, this was the most precious experience. We worked in small groups of 4-6 people and the course included 60 hours of various activities.

An additional attraction was guided tours around Oxford.  At the end of the course each participant was given a course completion certificate.

In my opinion, the course was an invaluable opportunity to exchange professional experiences with teachers from various European countries. Also, we had a chance to improve our knowledge of British culture, language and traditions.

Anna Filanowska–Woźny  –  Innovatives Lernen mit Tablets”

Between the 30th of October 2018 and the 5th of November 2018 I participated in a computer course on inclusive education within the Erasmus+ mobility programme.

– The training course was organised by the atempo” Betriebsgesellschaft mbH  company from Graz. It concerned the use of tablets during lessons with children with special educational needs.

The course comprised:

– teaching how to implement special applications which help motivate students to learn – Actionbound, Book Creator, Classroom, Keynote and Quizlet,

– discussing and creating the best ways to develop and support students’ creativity by introducing active methods of  teaching;

– promoting ideas to motivate students to team work;

– learning about means and methods which activate students in the process of acquiring knowledge;

– observing  lessons in Austrian schools and sharing good practice with other teachers;

The course was carried out by highly qualified IT teachers and methodology specialists: Mr Thomas Trobinger and Mr Karl Back.

The participants of the course came from various European countries :  Poland, Germany, Lithuania and Austria.  We all  found the course  an excellent opportunity to share practical ideas and professional experiences on teaching students with special educational needs (SEN). We discussed different ways of coping with everyday problems in our work and learned new methods in teaching SEN students. The course gave me a chance to broaden my knowledge of  traditions and culture of German-speaking countries  as well as to improve some of my language skills.  The experience acquired during the training will definitely help me improve my teaching methods . I also intend to share my newly gained knowledge on educating SEN students with other teachers in my workplace.
