    The international conference "Cultural vehicles in education", Vilnius, 10th-12th November 2008

    The main aim of the conference was to gather feedback from pilot courses held in each country as well as to promote the project and test the new methodology. It was the final conclusion of many discussions between the monitoring teams in each country in order to work out the CVE approach. Representatives of each discipline involved in the experimental process (artists, educators, monitoring experts) were invited, together with some participants of pilot workshops from all countries), which made it possible to present the CVE methodology from many different angles. Feedback from the audience was gathered during the lively Q&A sessions following each presentation, during practical workshops in summing-up rounds and in the final questionnaires. It was decided that the whole second day would be devoted to CVE workshops run by 4 national teams, and the conference participants were able to choose the one they wanted to attend (German, Polish, Czech or Lithuanian), each presenting findings from their pilot groups and providing hands-on experience of CVE methods. This approach was an example of active learning, an integral part of the CVE methodology. The third day of the conference focused on placing the new arts-based approach in a wider context of life-long learning. Also, during the first and third day of the conference (plenary sessions, panel discussion), some CVE methods were implemented to stimulate the participants (for example, the surprise factor - games were used to keep up the interest, as well as artistic activities - singing during technical breaks and dancing after the performance of Roma learners).
