The EMA`s methodology is rely on active learning methods, interactive events, multidisciplinary synergies and openness to civil society.
Key points of the methodology proposed to implement this project are:
1) Active learning methods are based on problem solving, learning by inquiry, role-playing, debates, argumentations and simulations. Our key staff members will be able to stimulate members of the target groups (especially focus on youth people involved) to actively participate in gaining new knowledge and skills. The exact agenda and background material for the EMAs events will be elaborated well in advance and will reflect actual situation and particularities regarding the project’s issues in Moldova.
2) Interactive events (Roundtable, Seminars and Workshop) foresee active discussion on given topics. The participants (members of target groups and different stakeholders) will come from different economic, social and geographic (urban and rural) circumstances. It will be thus used modern and verified didactical methods and will be adapted to the theoretical and practical knowledge, experience, education and specific needs of the target groups. They will include lectures, presentations of relevant cases and good practices (in national, regional and international context) and also practical exercises (to be carried out individually, in pairs and/or in groups) by encouraging active involvement of participants in considering relevant topics (raising questions, pointing to the main problems, concerns and challenges, presenting new ideas) and stimulating open and constructive discussions in order to work out adequate solutions and formulate relevant conclusions and recommendations (by applying the methods of deduction and synthesis).
3) Multidisciplinary synergies of the project itself as well as its activities and deliverables will allow for the connection of various aspects of EU integration topics. Accordingly, the project’s topics will be addressed not only from political, legal and human rights perspectives but will also take into consideration other relevant aspects (trade, educational & science, sociological, cultural, moral and ethical) when applicable.
4) Openness to civil society. The project`s activities are dedicated to the development and strengthening of the cooperation between academic/research and civil society with main focus on youth people. The representatives of the civil society will take active part in the project activities during the whole period of its realization.
