Abstract or Description

This report is an evaluation of Silver Stories , a research and training partnership of nine organisatio ns from six countries. The project brought together expertise in digital storytelling, community engagement and education to train professionals working with community groups and elderly people. Silver Stories ran from October 2013 to September 2015 and was funded by the Eu ropean Commission’s Learning Programme, under the Leonardo da Vinci Lifelong Transfer of Innov ation sub -­‐ programme . This programme seeks to adopt and transfer existing innovative practices to new settings that included sectors, target groups and countries, made achievable by working with transnational partners. This evaluation report is a key proj ect deliverable to explore the efficacy of the project in delivering its aims , namely to: • Adapt and transfer learning methods from E xtending Creative Practice (E CP ) across the whole partnership and to two new countries and, working to provide VET for a new target professional group – i.e. trainers and employees working in the caring professions – across the whole partnership. • Establish a means for d igital s torytelling to be incorporated into the on -­‐ going training of professionals in all the partner countries. More detail on the evaluation methodology can be found in Appendix 1 This report considers the project delivery against the research aims and objectives as set out in the original project app lication. We draw on a range of sources and data including material provided by the project partners. The report reviews delivery, ident ifies achievements and successes as well as lessons learnt throughout . In doing so it makes recommendations about how the work pioneered through Silver Stories might usefully be taken forwards
