Consortium led by the Faculty of Business and Economics of the University of Pannonia won the grant titled ’LELLE2 – Let’ learn how to learn! – Learning skills development for secondary school students’ in the frame of Erasmus+ announced by the European Committee in 2018. The European Union supports the project number 2018-1-HU01-KA201-047839 with €297.386 starting on September 1st, 2018 planned ending on December 31st, 2020. The University of Pannonia leads the strategic partnership project collaborating with Eszterházy Károly University – Hungarian Institute for Education Research and Development (Hungary), the Statny Pedagogicky Ustav (Slovakia), the Cirkevná spojená škola MARIANUM (Slovakia), Liceul Teoretic „Téglás Gábor” (Romania), Kuressaare Gümnaasium (Estonia), and the I. Béla Comprehensive School, Dorm and Primary School from Szekszárd (Hungary).
The LELLE2 project idea came from the success of ERASMUS+ project LELLE (http://lelle.gtk.uni-pannon.hu/en/home/) which focused on the research, measurement and development of learning skills (managing own learning process, critical thinking, problem solving). In order to be successful during the higher educational studies or finding a job factual knowledge is not enough, certain additional soft skills are also needed.
These key competences are not taught in the institutions so that secondary students need to acquire these skills themselves. The main objective of our project is to provide secondary school students with learning skills development and to equip them with skills that can be used on the job market and in the secondary and higher education.
During the 28-month project the Partnership lead by the Faculty of Business and Economics is to achieve the implementation of the
following intellectual outputs:
- Best Practice Collection on Learning Skills Development (compilation of state-of-the-art learning skills development methods available for assessing and developing the learning skills of secondary school students)
- How to Teach How to Learn – teachers training in secondary schools (training material for secondary school teachers and provide training for them)
- Learning skills assessment of secondary school students (taking into account the skills and abilities of secondary school students, and the demands of higher education and employers)
- Pedagogical materials for learning skills development
- European Learning Skills Development Gateway (it will be a knowledge share portal and will also function as a knowledge community)
The first transnational project meeting was held in Veszprém on 8th – 9th October, 2018. The Partnership successfully started the project work in the Kick-off meeting.
