Benefits of working on the Project
Working on the REVIVAL project has allowed us to be a part of an important European collaboration project with six other Saint John of God organisations across Europe. The REVIVAL project gave us the opportunity to Relaunching Theatre Education via innovative virtual stages by creating eLearning resources to allow remote teams to access digital drama resources. The teams involved in the project participated in various workshops and sessions.

Revival Meetings with Project Partners
The revival Project gave us the opportunity to attend transnational REVIVAL meetings with other partners. We travelled to Austria, Greece, Spain, and Germany; this allowed us to meet other partners we have been working with face-to-face. Across our centres, we organised workshops where the instruction materials were presented to the men and women in SJOG Liffey Services. The workshops were an excellent opportunity to see what worked and what needed to be changed in the instructional materials. On the other hand, it allowed us to see how the instructor would adapt the video to suit their men and women and the kind of delivery modules used to achieve the objectives of the instructional materials. So attending the international meetings allowed us to see how the other partners adapted the video instructional materials in their various centres.

The meeting in Thessaloniki, Greece, provided an avenue to discuss the project’s progress with other partners. We discussed the output one of the project, deciding on what had been done and what needed to be done to finish that part of the Revival project. All the partners used the design thinking method to brainstorm on ideas for output two.
