What is the lesson we could learn from this BP or case study?

The training program offered has managed to solve various aspects by reducing the time resources, the financial and material resources necessary for the teachers to participate in the courses, by the possibility of informing and educating at distance through the e-learning platform, stimulating the didactic framework in the continuous responsible education process. A multiregional training program consisting of 4 courses with MECI priority themes based on digital resources was implemented. The training program provided teachers in the S-Muntenia and SV regions of Romania, the opportunity to take part in blended learning courses with sessions in the classroom where students can work in the team and interact with colleagues and the trainer, and distance learning sessions, mediated by digital resources, allowing unconditional self-training of time or financial resources using interactive multimedia materials.
The fact that teachers have been able to browse online materials at their own pace increases the degree of flexibility adapted to their learning style and solves the problem of timing mismatches and the difficulty of finding a timeframe that is acceptable to all those interested in this training program. Through the online community developed in the project, teachers have learned from the experience of other colleagues, so that the information and resources that teachers have access to are relevant and accessible when they need it. Teachers participating in the course have been able to stimulate and motivate current generations of students who are "digital generations", expanding the use of computers and the internet in everyday professional activities.
