Training Course

5-11 July 2016 | Bucharest, Romania

In a nutshell: CONNECTOR is a space aiming to bring together practitioners passionate about learning in a participative and interactive manner, with a focus on practical experience. The event is based on sharing, learning and experimenting.
Why CONNECTOR? Learning by doing and focusing on the participants needs and experience are key elements to personal and professional development. With these in mind, the main objectives of the event are: - to promote non-formal learning in Europe and Romania - to create connections between non-formal learning, formal education and vocational training - to develop a space for identifying the common needs and challenges of all the stakeholders involved - to develop solutions for the identified needs and challenges through projects and network activities - to create a collaborative space for sharing methods, instruments, practices and efficient ideas for learning - to create future European partnerships, eligible under Erasmus+ programme How will CONNECTOR happen? The event is based on sharing, learning and experimenting with thematic days. Day 1 – Sharing After the official opening we will start working. The day will be dedicated to the exchange of ideas, practices and experiences among participants aiming to identify network activities and projects that can be developed collaboratively and to get a glimpse of the learning methods presented in CONNECTOR 2016. This day will use the "open space" methodology. As fruit for thought, in the opening we will start with several inspirational speeches related to educational topics that matter. Days 2 & 3– Learning Two days that will be focused on learning and developing knowledge, skills and attitudes. Brains and emotions will be equally involved in this process. Learning methods and tools (such as forum theater or improvisation theater, storytelling, graphic facilitation, street animation, drumming etc.) will be shared by experienced facilitators in parallel workshops and training courses (one workshop per participant). Days 4 &5– Experimenting Participants will put in practice in the local community the methods they experienced during days 2&3 through shows, performances or other type of interactive activities. Connector 2016 is the third edition of this learning event. In 2015 we brought together 263 people from 36 countries: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QbNWK1KrY3A&list=PLc92waiFeIKPPsxQb9J3yLRgYIpoIK1ww
