Introduction: Knowledge based societies, social innovation and competency centered learning as a response
Why a shift towards (self-)empowerment and competency-centered learning takes place and why the role of teachers/trainers/educators changes.
- with Nils-Eyk Zimmermann, Competendo and MitOst
Impulse: The non-formal education field perspective
What responses to the social challenges took education outside schools and universities? What is the role of non-formal education and its potential for innovation? How are non-formal education challenged through competency centered learning?
- with Marta Gawinek-Dagargulia, Competendo and SKORO
Impulse: The European perspective
What role does European Union and Council of Europe play, what opportunities do they have in the light of current social, political and economical developments in the EU?
- with Georg Pirker (Secretary of the European DARE network)
Workshop 1: Paving the road to competency development
- Nils-Eyk Zimmermann (MitOst)
- Matthias Haberl (Südwind)
- How can we shape on the micro and macro levels better conditions for (self-)empowerment and for holistic learning allowing the development of transversal competencies?
- Emphasis is put here on the aspects of initiative/intrapreneurship and how learners might become empowered for self-responsible action.
- How can informal, formal and non-formal education co-shape competency-learning and optimal environments?
- How competency frameworks and definitions or other quality-related measures help?
- With small presentations of good practice
Impulse: Thinking in interdependencies: Global dimensions of learning
How does Global Learning support systemic thinking? How the global dimension can be included in usual learning settings and made use out of it for competency development?
- with Matthias Haberl (Südwind)
Workshop 2: Facilitation: A challenge for activists, teachers and trainers
- Competency centered facilitation requires a new definition of the profession.
- It includes a shift in the attitude of trainers/teachers/instructors/facilitators toward empowering, cooperative learning, applicability of learning and resource orientation/confidence in the learners capacities.
- On a social level diversity consciousness and inclusiveness lead to paradigmatic consequences for facilitation of learning processes.
- A shift is relevant in all kind of learning. What are achievements? What are practices from facilitator, trainer or teacher education?
- With small presentations of good practice
- Magdalena Latuch (Travelling Culture Animators and Sociologists Organisation, Warsaw)
- Anna Mygal (Insha Osvita, Kiew)
- Safa Aboelmagd (Sofaraa' Selmiyah , Cairo)
- Sergej Tereshenkov (ARTa - Association of Russian Trainers, St. Petersburg)
Impulse: Facilitation under the condition of social diversity
What impact does social diversity have on the role of facilitators? How facilitation can unleash the potential of diversity?
- with Maria Prahl Working Between Cultures (DE)
