The Taste of Harmony project Outcomes
To achieve the project objectives, the project partners developed 5 intellectual outputs – a blended learning programme, an online platform and online modules, bite-size learning units, an online radio show and a training programme for adult education professionals.
Blended Learning Course
Presenting Your Culinary Traditions in Digital Media (IO1)
The project partners have developed a Blended Learning Course to facilitate, encourage, and re-think intercultural communication between native-born and foreign-born adult members of the local community in partner countries through food and recipe discourse as a socialising mechanism.
What’s Cooking? (IO2)
This is the online part of the blended learning programme aimed to supplement the face-to-face programme (IO1). The e-learning platform offers 5e-learning modules:
1) Writing a Recipe and Storytelling
2) Narrating a Recipe
3) Recording a Recipe
4) Communication Online
5) Organising Food Sharing Events
Learners will also improve their access to and use of online collections of digital training material. You can register and attend the free courses here.
Bite-Sized Learning Units
Learn about other cultures (IO3)
Project partners have created and published a series of short learning activities to develop intercultural awareness and communicative competence. A total of 50 learning units (10 per partner) averaging 1-3 minutes in length were developed in the form of text, images, audio, video, and tests to raise awareness of and better equip citizens for intercultural dialogue. You can find bite-size units published in the project’s Facebook profile or download them from here.
Online Radio Show “A Taste of Home”
A taste of home (IO4)
The project partners have created and published a series of online radio show episodes (“Podcasts”) to foster the use of food and recipes as facilitators of cultural bridging between foreign-born and native-born community members in their countries. Each partner recorded and produced 6 podcasts of 30-60 minutes in length, inviting foreign-born adult members of the local community and talking with them about food, cuisine, and food-related traditions. We invite you to listen to podcasts here.
Training Programme for Adult Education Professionals
A training programme (IO5) was created to support the delivery of the developed outputs (IO1 and IO2) and ensure a quality training outcome is achieved.
The training programme placed particular emphasis on working with non-traditional learning approaches and explored the different roles that educators are required to adopt when working in blended learning environments. The training also addressed some key considerations when working with foreign-born adults as well as diverse learner groups to maintain effective intercultural communication and a positive atmosphere in learning environments. You can download the training programme in English, Croatian, German, Greek and Italian languages.
