Project meeting in Vienna on 8.5 and 9.5.17
The energetic BICAS team visited the beautiful city of Vienna in May 2017 to continue their international project work.
Aim of the meeting was to further develop and finalize the e-learning course concept based on the yet elaborated framework and to compile specific contents. The e-learning tool functions and the mobile application functions were shown and defined. Additionally the Italian partner explained the project evaluation. Since then a vivid exchange takes place on the project platform Admin-Project which has been allocated by the Polish partner. The next 6 months seem to be very productive.
Hosts of the meeting were Johanniter Austria. A visit to restaurant Schweizerhaus in the famous Prater rounded the meeting off.

Intercultural Training Course in Granada
The first step within the BICAS project was an intercultural training for the project partners in December 2016 provided by Andalucia Acoge. The aim was to give everyone the same idea of what intercultural competencies are.
The project consortium met in Granada on the premises of the Andalusian School of Public Health (EASP). Apart from the great view over the region during our lunch breaks, the location was perfect from a professional point of view as well, since the experts on various topics related to migration and how to deal with its challenges were all situated at the school.
We had five intense training days which helped us a lot shaping the curriculum for the blended learning course. The intercultural training course not only provided useful information and knowledge but also an opportunity for personal exchange. This week of common growth established a real partnership and set the mood for the upcoming tasks.
After collecting first ideas for the BICAS training course concept in Granada, the beginning of 2017 was used to draft a first training course concept and discuss its feasability within our partnership.
After finalising the course concept at our next meeting in May in Vienna, the next big task will be the translation of the course concept into an e-learning course by Wisamar.Simultaneously, Danmar Computers will start.
