1st Transnational Meeting

On 30th of November and 1st of December Electromechanical School Varaždin will be the host of the 1st Transnational Meeting of the Project.

Participants from four European countries will be presenting their institution, discussing and consulting on the project intellectual outputs, activities, finance and management of the Project.

Also, they will plan the next project training events, virtual meetings, communication, evaluation, and dissemination.

1st Transnational Meeting Agenda - Open 

The Electromechanical school Varaždin is the coordinator of the KA2 Erasmus Strategic partnerships project for general education entitled "Integrating Sports Ethics in the High School Curriculum", which is worth 160 480 euros. The idea for the project was developed by professor of philosophy Matija Mato Škerbić, who is also the project coordinator.

About the project

It is a KA2 Erasmus project for general education, which connects five partners from four European countries:

The project is of an interdisciplinary nature and is primarily intended for professors of a series of subjects who may include topics related to ethics of sport in the course of their subject, which involves dealing with specific moral problems, such as ethics and philosophy, religion, politics and economics (racism, corruption, betting...), sociology (racism, gender equality), chemistry and biology (doping, Paralympics...), physical education, art (fairness of aesthetic sports scoring) etc. It is about subjects which can integrate in the existing curricula various moral problems of ethics of sport.

Project goals

There are three intellectual outcomes, but the primary is development of the Framework Curriculum of Ethics of Sport, which consists of four modules: Intentional Violation of Rules and Fair-Play in Sports; Virtues and Weaknesses in Sports; Gender Equality in Sports; and Racism in Sports. In addition, the aim is to create Educational Guidelines, which would include various tools and skills as well as the specific materials needed to implement the module. Finally, there will be a web platform from which teachers will be able to download produced and developed material, examples, videos, tutorials and literature for implementation of the modules in their schools.

Developed modules will be piloted in secondary schools in Varaždin (the first two modules), Germany (the third module) and Italy (the fourth module), along with the exchange of students and professors involved in the so-called peer-learning.
