O1-A1: Organising Micro Science Cafe & Bite-Size Learning Videos

Within the scope of the project, 15 different science cafe events will be held in 5 different project partner countries. These science cafe events will be recorded and shared on the project’s youtube channel. By adding English subtitles to these videos, each video will be understood by a wider audience. After each science cafe event, the ‘Science Cafe Event Evaluation Questionnaire’ will be administered to the participants. This survey data will be used to feed the last of the project activities, the Joint Position Paper.

After the science cafe events, each partner institution will create different bite-size videos on the theme of the science cafe events. These videos will be the educational content of the project.

O1-A2: Generation and Use of Validation Tools

After the preparation of the first phase bite-size videos, all partners conducted a pilot study in their own country with the participation of 20 people. After each pilot implementation, all partners created a pilot implementation report. According to these reports, bite-size videos have been revised and finalized.

The main verification tools of the project are the video questions that appear as a post-course final exam on the Moode platform. Participants who achieve a certain level of success according to the answers given to these tools will be deemed to have completed their training successfully and will be entitled to receive a certificate. This certificate is the source of validation.

O1-A3: A Joint Position Paper

Joint Position Paper, the last of the project activities, will be prepared by one of the project partners, VSL SOCIALINIU INOVACIJU CENTRAS. An opinion paper or report, known as a ‘position paper’, is a piece of paper that discusses a particular view and presents ideas. The purpose of this document is to convince readers that your idea is valid and worth listening to. The ideas you are considering need to be carefully scrutinized as you choose a topic, develop your argument, and edit your article. The problem must be addressed in all its aspects. As you write, you need to take one side of the argument and convince others that you have a very solid foundation on the subject. In order to ensure the validity of your claims, it is very important to support your claim with solid evidence, to deal with counter-claims, and to show that you have a good knowledge of both parties. A joint opinion article will be written within the scope of the project. In this article, the Science Cafe Evaluation questionnaire will be applied to the participants after the science cafe activities.

Science Cafe For Adults project is an expert guide to the interesting topics that seem remote and inaccessible to adults, but are at the center of life.
