On 30 and 31 March, the OTTER project team got together - virtually this time - for their third Progress Meeting to discuss the curent status of their tasks, exchange ideas, and plan for the upcoming months. If the first year of the project was dedicated primarily to research and setting up the tools and activities that will be implemented, we have now moved onto the second part of the project, where we have the opportunity to test our tools, go to actual schools, and assess the impact of the Education Outside the Classroom Methodology.
During the meeting, partners updated each other on the progress of their work, including the latest developments of the OTTER Hub (whose members are very active on the platform), the launch of the Learning Platform (the result of many months of collaborative work), and the assessment protocol (where partners will gather feedback on the OTTER Labs in schools). And since we want our project to reach a high number of stakeholders, we also focused on various dissemination opportunities including the ECSITE Conference in Malta and potential collaborations with sister projects on co-writing scientific papers. What comes next? You will see if you continue to follow our adventure!
