The EVIVE partners met for the second workshop in Ankara, Turkey. After taking a closer look at the educational systems in the partner countries the partners launched into the creation of concept maps to describe national values in their vocational education systems. The concept maps will be an essential step in gathering more information and understanding what different values mean in the partner countries and which values different systems focus on. In the coming months after the meeting the partners will expand the gathered data and add the view of teachers by creating more concept maps with local schools.
Apart from intensive work phases the partners also visited a vocational school for girls in Ankara to get a practical impression of how values are taught and to have an opportunity of speaking directly with students, teachers, and the school’s director. The consortium partners were treated to a wonderful lunch prepared by the students.
The Turkish partner also introduced the guests to Ankara with a few impressions of the city, such as a visit to the Attatürk mausoleum and museum.
