This is part of a workshop series with the overall objective of increasing the quality of the work done by trainers in the youth field. This is to be achieved through the development of youth trainer´s competences, in particular educational tool experimentation, adaptation, design, and creation; as well as insight enhancement of the participants (the ability to reflect on one´s own practice, be conscious and aware of one´s own youth work practice). Games and play are a focus of this particular workshop and their development will be pursued while exploring the practice, potential, and the limitations of youth work with and about refugees. The participants of this workshop will also have a chance to apply for the ‘IC Product Jam’, which is planned to be organised between 21-26 January 2019. During the ‘Product Jam’, participants in teams from 3 workshops (creative writing; visuals and comics; games and play) gather and develop tools to be used in youth work with and about refugees where skills from the three workshops will be merged. . All activities of the Insightrainer Creatrainer process will be accompanied by an experienced researcher with the key research question ‘what helps facilitate trainers to gain and implement new skills?’ The research will not only provide a feedback loop throughout the year but also will sharpen the documentation process and support participants’ conscious learning process. Objectives: In line with the overall objective, the specific objectives of this Workshop are: - To become acquainted with the design process of games and play activities, - To gain a theoretical overview of different types of games, - To practice developing an educational game or a playful activity, - To explore the potential and limitations of play in youth work, - To reflect on the educational role of games in contexts where language creates a barrier, - To increase abilities in “designing meaningful play experiences”, - To get information and share practices on the work done with, for and about young refugees, - To reflect on individual learning processes and support the Youthpass process. Profile of participants / recommended for: Non-formal educators in the youth field, the trainers’ affiliated with the various National Agencies of the Erasmus+ Programme and SALTO Centres, the members of the trainers’ pool of the Council of Europe’s Youth Department. The call also welcomes applicants who are teachers and willing to increase their skills in order to support young refugees with whom they are working with.
