Numerous contributions have already been selected for the Epale Community Stories 2021 initiative, with contributions from educators, researchers and teachers from different countries. The initiative, which is now in its second edition, was created to share experiences from the educational world aimed at adult education and training, and to treasure them. At the end of the year, all contributions published online will be collected in a book, as in the recent Epale Community Storybook 2020.
In addition, this year prizes are up for grabs both for those who submit their story and for those who leave a comment on the Epale website.
Here is a small selection from Italy, Poland and Latvia:
Self-narration as a vehicle of expressing a desire for redemption
by Mariadaniela Sfarra, teacher and Epale Ambassador
Bridging the gap between research and practice
by Radoslaw Czahajda, trainer, presenter and author
The great strangers: computers and languages
by Ērika Pičukāne, teacher and specialist in language teaching methodologies
Take part in the initiative
All stories must be linked to Epale 2021 thematic focuses and follow the structure required by the online form with which the submission is made, as explained in detail in the launch article of the initiative.
Gifts for the participants:
- The first 100 Epale users who submit a qualified story will receive a gift with the Epale logo
- Every month from May to November there will also be a lottery among users who comment on the stories: 5 users per month among those who comment on the published stories in a relevant way will be drawn by lot and will receive a gift.
The initiative is open until 29 October, 2021.
