Learning Model

Learning Model

EcoOlives learning model provides the didactic methodology for the training course and the Manual for trainers. The model combines all pedagogical methods derived from partners’ theoretical backgrounds and practical experiences that are applicable and relevant to the project topic and the target group of olive farmers and olive oil producers. It defines and describes the base for the content development of the course & manual as well as the structure of the technical implementation of the web-platform.


Training Course

EcoOlives Training Course is specifically targeted towards olive-growers in activities (for conversion or diversification) and newcomers who do not have professional agricultural education in organic farming or production. The training course consists 7 modules:Introduction to Eco Olives; How to produce Eco Olives; How to produce Eco Olive Oil; How to market and sell organic olives & olive oil; Sustainability and Certification; Olive groves as part of cultural heritage; Conclusions and Evaluation. 


Manual for Trainers

This Manual for trainers, which is essentially a guidebook for trainers who want to use the EcoOlives Training Course to train and assist olive oil producers and supporting organizations. The result is based on  previous outcomes and the relevant structure. The manual will guide the trainers through the various  elements of the training course according to the modules. Meaning that it will either allow them to  navigate the guide as a whole or to pick which modules they need to integrate into a pre-existing  training approach to expand their practice. The manual will be available only in electronic form in  English and all national languages of the partners.
