Jens Vermeersch

Jens Vermeersch is Internationalisation Officer with GO! onderwijs van de Vlaamse Gemeenschap. GO! (or Education of the Flemish Community) is the official education network in the Dutch speaking part of Belgium. He has an MA in History and an MA in Communication Sciences. Jens has twenty years of experience in international project management of European union funded education projects such as Leonardo, Grundtvig and Comenius. He also supports GO! schools on internationalisation and follows EU education policy.

Jens co-ordinated the Comenius multilateral project “Teachers’ Aids on Creating Content for Learning Environments” (TACCLE). The first TACCLE project resulted in a handbook for teachers wanting to introduce e-learning, ICT and electronic media into their practice. As a spin-off several award winning training events for teachers have been organised. These international in-service training courses aim at empowering teachers to use ICT, audio and video in their teaching practice.

Building on and extending the experience of the initial project, TACCLE 2 aims to provide teachers with resources to integrate ICT and e-learning in their specific subject areas and targeted for different age ranges. To know more: http://www.taccle.eu and http://taccle2.eu.
