Connector 8.0 - Connecting the world by non-formal learning

Training Course

3-8 July 2023 | TBD, Romania

Connector aims to create a space and context where people involved in learning become familiar with different non-formal learning methods that can be used in various learning contexts.

The Romanian National Agency started to organize Connector in 2014, aiming that the event – focused on sharing and experiencing non-formal learning methods - would become a European reference point for non-formal education. Watch last year's teaser HERE.

Connector 8 in a nutshell: the non-formal learning event will focus on how to create a proper framework to gain competencies and abilities in 2023 – the European Year of Skills.

The European Year of Skills and the Erasmus+ and ESC transversal priorities: green, inclusion, digital transformation and participation open natural doors to seek learning for professional development, in line with the EU positioning for a safe and sound labor market. 

Why Connector?

Because it is a chance to become familiar with non-formal learning methods that you can use afterwards in your projects or your daily learning contexts. 

Because you can experience learning in an international and multicultural context. 

Because learning by doing and focusing on participants' hands-on experience are the key elements of this event.

With these in mind, we will offer 8 practical workshops in order to:

- promote non-formal learning in Europe with an emphasis on inclusion & diversity, green, and digital transformation;

- create connections between non-formal learning and formal education;

- create a collaborative space for sharing methods, instruments, practices and efficient ideas for learning (some of the previous editions’ methods were: debate, nonviolent communication, photovoice, forum theater, improvisation theater, storytelling, graphic facilitation, living library, more info HERE);

- create a learning space with a focus on European values.

Who can participate?

Practitioners from all educational sectors. We welcome youth workers, adult education practitioners, trainers, learning facilitators, teachers, educators, and support staff, representatives coming from schools, higher education, adult education, and vocational training. Other enthusiasts interested in non-formal learning are welcome!

Connector is about learning, networking, sharing and practice, but it’s mostly about PEOPLE getting connected!

Arrival day 3 July, departure day 8 July (activity days 4, 5, 6 and 7 July)
