DK : AARHUS . 27th - 30th OCTOBER . 2020 . 4 DAYS of KAOS

___________________________________________________________________________________________________


A FOUR-day masterclass for educators to Master the art & craft of designing & facilitating (offline, online & hybrid) learning spaces. Strengthen your knowledge, ability, competence, confidence and hone the skills required to define, design, deliver and discover (lead, facilitate and execute) experiential learning journeys(arches) through practice & training, in an experimental learning-arch lab.


“BECOME A MASTER ARCHER, of the visceral, visual, verbal and virtual elements in setting, holding and landing learning arches through exploring the space between 'confusion + structure' & 'purpose + experience."


** You must have completed A&CDFLS part 1 to attend part 2 **


___________________________________________________________________________________________________


Part 1 will run simultaneously at the school, (28th - 30th) so bring a colleague to Aarhus with you to attend part 1 while you master learning arches.

The programme is built on the rigorous training platform that dynamically combines a deeper level of practice, reflection and theory for how to create connection, conditions and context before content, facilitate learning journeys and lead creative collectives and culture for pedagogical change . . . . ACT / LEARN / ADAPT / REPEAT

___________________________________________________________________________________________________


Throughout the full-time experiential 4 day program, up to 30 A&CDFLS (part1) alumni* will co-create an amazing learning journey in order to maximise the potential for us all to grow as educational change agents towards the ultimate goal of creating authentic (offline, online & hybrid) transformational learning journeys and experiences for our students, colleagues, clients and schools.


** You must have completed A&CDFLS part 1 to attend part 2 **


We will follow the ‘The KP pedagogical anchoring and development tool’ process of DESIGNING; CREATING, EVALUATING & IMPLEMENTING! This method provides and supports the process of pedagogical innovation and change inside faculties and schools.


The course will primarily build on the core KP facilitation & intervention approach, methods & techniques providing participants with the opportunity to play between leading (setting) and facilitating (holding & landing) the learning and space.


The space and the group will be held and hosted by a leading facilitator with support from 2 current KP students or 1 recent KP alumni. They will work primarily as co-facilitators to hold the space and as participants & observers, guidance & support, intervention & inspiration.


* THIS MASTERCLASS IS RUN IN A HIGH TOUCH - LOW TECH ENVIRONMENT, BUT THE KP APPROACH & DESIGN METHODS EXPLORED AND PRACTICED CAN CREATE, SUPPORT & BE APPLIED TO HYBRID AND ONLINE LEARNING *

Attend if YOU ARE:

  • someone who has attended part 1 and has actively (to the best of their ability) tried to apply some of the methods learned from A&C1 and is ready to host autonomous KP like education.
  • an educator who wants to “BECOME A MASTER ARCHER!” and believes that it can support the big impact you wish to create that separates you from other teachers…
  • (most importantly) … a person who shares the need for a disruptive change in education and still thinks that this pedagogical approach combined with your own practice is right for you, your craft, society and future generations of online & offline learners and do’ers.

Testimonial snippets

A rich life experience. Life and profession in full sync. Still need to sediment it all. It will take time.

Angelo Marco Luccini: Serious Games Design & Project Management: Italy



One of the things I appreciated most was the risk of actual failure, the sense of unpredictability. All courses promise certain results, how refreshing is it when a situation is created where NO ONE knows where it will lead us? That’s not a journey, that’s an expedition.

Patrick van Aalst: Educational designer: Netherlands



It was a great experience. In just 4 days we went through the whole process of designing and undergoing a learning journey. We really practiced all the KOAS ways of designing learning arches. It was challenging and fun. And most important I learned so much!!!

Yvette Fijen: Academic leader: Amsterdam Theatre Academy: Netherlands



I discovered that I have to raise my level of confusion and I invented a new motto for myself: I am still confused but at a higher level!

Merike Rehepapp, Academic leader: Estonia



Experiencing chaos (By design ?:) and trying to understand the impact on people, helped us discover the potential to use that chaos as a tool in a positive way. There truly lies beauty in chaos.

The awesome team from Stenden, University of Applied Sciences, The Netherlands
