Overall, 5 webinars have been recorded, 4 webinars covered innovative teaching methods namely: Inquiry based Learning, Flipped Classroom, CLIL and Visible and Critical Thinking and 1 Webinar covered Feedback of Teachers on innovative teaching methods and on the implementation of the project outcomes.
The webinar on Inquiry based Learning focused the attention on experimenting and activities’ based learning. The key focus has been on different phases of the inquiry based learning process, like Interaction, clarification, summarizing or classifying information.
The webinar on Flipped Classroom provided an overview of a method, which is one the most commonly used in a teachers’ practice.

Webinar Feedback of Teachers in cooperation with partnering school Holice, and the Webinar Feedback of Teachers in cooperation with Havering College, discussed some important features of the implementation of the project outcomes, including innovative teaching methods, including some process related specifics, covering the development, testing and implementation phase. Teachers shared their experiences and insights on which innovative teaching methods proved to be most efficient and in which level. They discussed a structure of ECVET Units and shared which chapters, should be given more attention.
