TIPS “T-learning to Improve Professional Skills for intercultural dialogue” (TIPS) was a two-year (2007-2009) European project within the Leonardo da Vinci framework program (Lifelong Learning Program).
The TIPS multi-actor partnership led by the Italian Interuniversity Consortium FOR.COM and included six organizations from five European countries: Austria (Auxilium), France (IRIV), Greece (Hellenic Open University), Italy (Gruppo Pragma and FOR.COM) and Poland (Tischner European University).
The aim of the TIPS project was to implement an innovative training program for professionals (social workers, intercultural mediators) accompanying immigrants and refugees.
The methodology designed and developed was the t-learning methodology integrating three different tools (triple platform): television technologies (TV-learning), Internet (e-learning) and mobile phone (m-learning). Each platform allows course participants to customize their own personalized training paths based on their own specific availability, learning styles and training needs. Moreover, trainees are able to learn directly in their working environment and receive “on-the-job” training, creating a “learning-by- doing” approach integrated with a “work-based learning” method ensuring continuity between work and training.
In addition, all trainees had the opportunity to join a European virtual community via a forum and a chat on an online collaborative learning platform, where ideas and experiences could be shared and discussed between participants and participants. professionals.
