Training Course

29 October - 6 November 2016 | Villa Sklenářka, Czech Republic

Meeting of practitioners of nature based methods in education designed as a space to learn, contribute, experiment and receive feedback. The course is focused on modern ways of using traditional patterns in training, social work and youth work context.
Deep Education is a course for those active in the field of nature-based methods, who want to explore variety of approaches, share, get inspiration and feedback from other professionals. The whole course is focused on modern ways of using traditional patterns in present education, social work and youth work context. The methodology uses the time of Samhain / Halloween / All Saints’ Day as an example of using rituals and ceremonies in learning and self development events. The main objectives are: • To share the experience from participants' projects and activities. • To combine main NFE themes with modern methods based on traditional patterns. • To review the themes and methods in regards of the current needs. • To create a clear and realistic work plan for a specific topic with adequate methods. • To start a new phase of cooperation in the field of those methodologies. The project is designed for 33 youth workers from 10 countries (CZ, DE, ES, HU, IR, IT, PL, SK, TR, UK; Attention: This call is not for Turkish applicants but the Turkish partner organisation will launch a national call via their own media tools and will nominate participants applying to this national call). Applicants should already have at least a basic experience in the field and the potential to use the outcomes in their work. The main idea and overall methodology of the project is based on blending universal archetypal patterns (natural cycles, labyrinth, pilgrimage, rites of passage) with modern educational approaches and their application in current themes. Special attention is given to the general availability of the methods for its use in different contexts and accessibility for various target groups.
