Example of a difference between goals, needs, activities, outcomes and impact in Erasmus+ KA1 projects
In this blog we offer you a concrete example of the difference between learning needs, goals, outcomes, activities and impact as it is used in all Erasmus+ mobility projects.
Drafting Erasmus+ KA1 mobility project might cause some difficulties in understanding terminology used by Erasmus+ programme guide. The same terminology as in Erasmus+ programme guide should be used by applicant in their application form.
We explained the terminology and ideas for drafting arguments in different other blogs on our webpage www.erasmusbyprimerasupport.com. In this blog we only use a concrete example to explain the difference.
Dissemination is an opportunity to promote your work and the knowledge you received in Erasmus+ training abroad. So, do not take it as a pressure to put additional energy to your project but take it as a chance to facilitate lifelong learning in your community. Goals of dissemination are: raise awareness, extend the impact, engage stakeholders and target groups, share solutions and know how, influence policy and practice, develop new partnerships. Here are some ideas for different dissemination activities. Feel free to use them in your application.
Impact and dissemination bring you almost one third of scores in assessing the quality of your mobility project. Therefore, it is worth to put an effort to this part of your project.
The impact of the projects is related to the learning outcomes. Concrete learning outcomes lead to impact and this logical link has to be clearly demonstrated in the application form. But not just that. It is equally important to consider, how your mobility project will affect stakeholders outside your organisation. Different levels are important: institutional, local, regional, national and/or international levels. By tips below we aim to provide some ideas for effective arguments in the impact part of the application form for KA1 mobility projects.
Throughout the years of working as Erasmus+ KA1 course provider we gained a clear picture of how does a high quality KA1 application form looks like. We are happy to share our insights in order to increase the quality of international mobility projects in the field of teacher training.
