"How to design a learning experience"

Training Course

13-20 September 2022 | Zadar, Croatia

We will educate youth workers/teachers/educators on how to envision, design and implement learning activities for youngsters.

The main goal of the LTTA is to support the participating youth workers and educational trainers in developing their competences as youth trainers/educators/providers of non-formal education in delivering training for other staff of the youth centres and youth organisations, youth workers, youth leaders and youngsters peer educators on developing successful learning activities for youngsters. 

What will the TC look like?

The LTTA / training course will be based on the developed Manual “How to design a learning experience” and will follow the methodologies of learning-by-doing / experiential learning, whereas participants - youth trainers will have a chance to practice and get feedback on their style and approach as educators. 

The LTTA will follow the non-formal education methodology based on experiential learning and learning-by-doing. It will include participative and interactive methods oriented towards participants’ interests and their different learning styles. There will be different methods used: theoretical inputs, simulation, roleplays, case studies, brainstorming, discussions, presentations, video and picture collection, etc. The LTTA will be flexible on time and structured in training modules. The learning of new skills, the acquisition of knowledge and the exchange and challenge of each other's attitudes and experiences are very important for this LTTA. The LTTA programme and contents are organised to allow for the maximum participation and contribution of the group using active and participatory methods. 

All participants will receive a Youthpass certificate.
