Trainees will receive a questionnaire, which will provide information on their teaching subject, teaching background, qualifications, and any previous experience with 3d printing.

Follow up

Trainees will be supported by the e-Nable Greece Erasmus+ trainees Facebook Group. The group is full of instructions, photos and videos of how to use/set a 3d printer and design/print educational materials. Through this group e-Nable Greece commits itself to monitor the efforts of course trainees using these tools in their classrooms.The administrators of the Group will give instant feedback to any trainees’ question or problem.

In addition, trainees will be provided the educational material of the course in copies and in digital files. This material may be used by the trainees for presentation to their own organizations in order to generate the interest of their colleagues.
