- O1: Specification of Needs – Targeted Exercise programs applied in hotels facilities (Summary report)
This output includes the preparation and the implementation of the interviews in tourists and hotel industry managers (target groups) to specify the needs for targeted exercise programs applied in hotels facilities.
- O2: Joint staff training event – Experts point of view & Proceedings
This output includes the development of the joint staff training event (JSTE) and the completion of the “Experts point of view & Proceedings”. The JSTE which will take place in Norway and its duration will be 5 days, 6 hours per day.
- O3: Development of GO FIT learning materials
First at the beginning of this output, the Democritus University of Thrace (D.U.Th) and the European University of Cyprus (EUC), based on the selection criteria, will make their students (learners) selection. The selected learners will be informed about the idea and the philosophy of the project, the objectives, and the activities in which they will be involved. In the meantime, the GO FIT course modules will be jointly developed between academics (DUTh, EUC, UOS, AUAS and ALBA) and clinical experts (ORTH)
- Ο4: Adaptation of GO FIT learning materials
This output includes the development of the instructional and dissemination videos and the adaptation of GO FIT learning materials. After the completion of the learning activity (GO FIT course), the DUTH’s technician will make 8-10 min videos, containing the main points, for each learning activity (lectures and labs). Also, he will do the dissemination video of the project.
- O5: How to incorporate the GO FIT in an academic semester
Once the pilot GO FIT course is completed and the GO FIT- learning materials are adapted, the Partners involved in this output will work closely with the activity leader to design the new GO FIT-course for the undergraduate curriculum in Physical Education & Sports Depts (DUTh & EUC). The course GO FIT teaching schedule will be spread out in 13 academic weeks. The innovated GO FIT course placed in an academic semester is a milestone of the project which is based on previous output O1, O2, O3 & O4.
The Partners DUTH (as an activity leader – AL) & EUC in this Output will work closely to incorporate the “GO FIT” course in an academic semester. The course will combine the best of distance learning (eClass) and face-to-face instruction for enhancing learning.
- O6: The GO FIT web-platform & the multimedia application development
In this output the web platform (including and the website of the program) will be developed to provide an online interactive space for all target groups. So, the GO FIT platform will consist of a space with two types of users: (i) exercise leaders and (ii) all participants (tourist). Exercise leaders (learner) will be able to access learning materials that academic staffs (trainers) provide. Therefore, the final GO FIT learning materials (O4) will be uploaded on the site and platform.
GO FIT web-platform & the multimedia application development
Partners involved in this Output (EUC and UOS) will work closely with the AL (DUTH) to do the GO FIT web-platform & the multimedia application based on the design that was made during the O3. Then, the AL will upload the final GO FIT learning materials for the exercise leaders. In the meantime, the DUTH technician will finalize the multimedia application.
- Ο7: Effectiveness of teaching and learning activities
This output will contain all the evaluation procedures for the transnational meetings and Skype calls (partners’ opinions), the joint staff training event (JSTE) (trainer’s opinions), and the GO FIT course evaluation (Trainers and students’ opinions). The evaluation will be formative and summative in its approach.
- Ο8: GO FIT dissemination tools
This output includes the development of the GO FIT logo, an eLeaflet, the “eHandbook with guidelines adapted for tourists” and the academic paper.
The DUTh will work closely with the partner ALBA and Athens University of Applied Sciences to develop an eLeaflet which will be sent out through an email to selected hotel enterprises. Then the AL (ORTH) will do the final check of the dissemination tools.
