Connector 9.0 - Connecting the world by non-formal learning

Training Course

1-6 July 2024 | Romania

The 9th edition of Connector aims to create a space and context where people involved in learning become familiar with different non-formal learning methods to be used in various learning contexts.

The story of Connector dates back to 2014, when the Romanian National Agency organised its/first first edition, aiming that the event – focused on sharing and experiencing non-formal learning methods - would become a European reference point for non-formal education. Watch a teaser video of last year’s Connector HERE.

In a nutshell: the 9th edition of Connector aims to create a space and context where people involved in learning become familiar with and practice different non-formal learning methods, having in mind the 2024 Erasmus+/ESC priorities (inclusion& diversity; digital transformation; environment and fight against climate change; participation in democratic life).

A special focus will be placed on how these learning methods : create a framework for telling stories around project results.

Why Connector?

  • Because it is a chance to become familiar with non-formal learning methods that you can afterward use in your projects or your daily learning context. 
  • 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 a large gallery of 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 and telling stories (to get an idea, some of the previous editions’ methods were: debate, nonviolent communication, photovoice, forum theater, improvisation theater, storytelling, graphic facilitation, living library);
  • create a learning space with a focus on European values.

Who can participate?

Practitioners from all educational sectors that represent institutions/organisations with approved ongoing E+/ESC projects.

We welcome youth workers, adult education practitioners, trainers, learning facilitators, teachers, educators, and support staff, representatives coming from youth sector, schools, higher education, adult education, and vocational training institutions.. (representing organisations with approved E+/ESC projects from 2021 onwards'.

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