Methodology of the course
The methodology of the seminar is based on the fundamental principles of non-formal education. The methods provided will enable participants to fully participate in the learning process. Learning from experience will be a fundamental pillar in the way the course will be facilitated. The course focuses on key aspects of non-formal education like the participant centred approach. It will imply that the team of trainers will keep in mind the participants’ prior experience in youth projects. The learning process will continuously adapt to the of participants’ needs and motivations as well as the group’s work rhythm.
Moreover, an essential element of the methodology is based on the holistic nature of the learning experience, through methods that involve not only cognitive or intellectual approaches but also covering the emotional and attitudinal ones. This way the learning is enhanced as it embraces the three dimensions of human learning.
The diversity of working methods (presentations, role plays, simulations, debates, energizers, individual reflection questionnaires, technical project management, feedback techniques, teamwork, etc) will make more sense than ever in order to cover a practical and effective project management of transnational youth initiatives.
The international composition of the group of participants will be an asset to explore the multicultural dynamics of teamwork and thus will contribute to incorporate new learning at the level of cultural diversity.
