The first training was a 2 days online event held in November 2021. 61 participants (24 from Greece ad 37 from the other countries) took part in the online event instead of the 10 provided in the Dow. In other words, more teachers had the opportunity to have a first hand training experience and interact directly with the tutors. All essential topics of the designed Training were covered: The teachers had an in deep training on the main assets of the INCLUDE approach: -What are the main characteristics of an INCLUDE scenario -Basic INCLUDE concepts: the CLIL approach and the novelties introduced by INCLUDE, Europeanity, transversal skills and key competences, the concept of multimodality of the educational resources, the evaluation of the students learning; the INCLUDE Moodle platform and tools for the scenario creation. Moreover

– a debate on the 4 first scenarios realized by each school was hold to give evidence to the teachers, that were facing to a more massive scenario production, of the strengths and weaknesses of each one and reflect on them.

– the second training day a workshop on the INCLUDE Moodle platform was provided, to give the chance to the teachers to discover the digital platform, the issues for the uploading of scenarios and use all digital features available in the platform for the scenario creation. After the Training, the teachers continued to receive support for the creation and evaluation of scenarios either in online meetings (for example during monthly meetings for monitoring the testing phase), or by email correspondence among schools and the 1o Peiramatiko Gymnasio Athinas. As a result, all schools have managed to achieve the goals of IO3 (scenario creation and evaluation).
