Education Modules

The goal of DPPN is to offer a comprehensive range of different education activities (tabular overview training modules), which includes freely combinable theoretical and practical modules that can be adapted to different target groups.

To stay flexible enough to offer also tailor made education activitiesDPPN develops its education modules using two different approaches:

Top-down approach: After collecting and evaluating already existing education activities of the DPPN partners, single modules are developes which will be tested DPPN internally first. These modules provide the fundamentals for summer schools, workshops, trainings and e-learning activities.

Bottom-up approach: DPPN also cooperates with external institutes for specific education modules. It is also possible to develope education modules on the basis of existing education activities of the DPPN partners. Any resulting costs have to be discussed individually.
