The FIGHT THE FRIGHT project proposes an innovative approach that uses performance arts disciplines, including drama and storytelling, to build a package of innovative learning educational resources to build key transversal skills of adults.
In a pedagogic context, the performing arts of storytelling and drama in language learning to overcome the obstacles in public speaking are now considered appropriate techniques for critical competence building.
Taking into consideration all mentioned above, it is the opinion of partners that new approaches are needed to try and attract those issues with the new developed materials and resources in this project:
TAKE THE STAGE (IO1)
Curriculum for developing public speaking in a foreign language using drama techniques.
SET THE SCENE (IO2)
A guide for adult education professionals on using drama techniques in teaching and learning.
COME ONLINE (IO3)
An online platform for developing public speaking skills.
As there is clear evidence that adult education in its current form is not attractive to most adults, the FIGHT THE FRIGHT project will significantly contribute to the design of the proposed learning resources, learning opportunities, and different learning activities. With partners’ expertise in adult education and training, all proposed activities can be used to illustrate which services could be modeled in the other EU Member States. The potential exchange of best practices could be a significant added value emerging from the project.
