Five by Five – 5by5

Acronym: 5by5

Project Title: Five by Five – 5by5

Total Cost: 13045,00€

Funding: 13045,00€


“Five by five” stands for five educational institutions which decided to join together in a network to discuss and develop approaches for the adult training sector in following main topics:

(1) Migration, forced migration, recognition of prior learning, labour market transition.

(2) Digitization, preparing the world of education for the future world of work.

(3) Shifting from input oriented to outcome-oriented education and training, incl. ECVET.

(4) Adopting new media didactics: the use of social media, micro-learning, game-based learning and other new media types in training and education.

(5) Adopting new learner-centred didactics: the use of agile and problem-based approaches in training and education.

The main objectives of the project are to:

  • Contribute to the adaptability and innovation-readiness of the partnership;
  • Increase organisational know-how related to the five main themes of the project;
  • Identify, document and disseminate best practice related to the five main themes of the project;
  • Create a sustainable network of like-minded education institutions.

For each of the five topics, members of the partner organisations will form a knowledge community for collaborative research and exchange of best practice examples. The knowledge community will break down the topics into specific sub-topics for further discussion. These discussions and further intensive work will take place at a three-day-staff training event.

At the three-day short-term staff training event (one event per topic) two persons of each partner organisation will meet in person for further intensive work. The results and findings will be documented in short videos and/or text and disseminated internally and externally. At the end of the project, a consolidated compilation of identified best practices and a checklist for “best-practice-readiness” for each topic will be published as well.
