To live is to learn

Training Course

18-24 September 2013 | Arnhem, Netherlands

A training course on self-directed learning (SDL)
Objectives of the course * To enable participants experience SDL as a learner, * To share experiences, ideas, visions, doubts and challenges connected to SDL, * To reflect on SDL from a metalevel as a supporter of SDL processes, * To strengthen and enrich the educational approach of supporters of SDL processes, * To support the transfer of SDL as a tool, approach or idea into relevant areas of participant's lives. Self-directed learning means that you, as the learner, decide when, what and how you want to learn. We believe that the ability to take responsability for your own learning is an important competence in the everchanging world of today. It puts the learner in the centre of the educational activity. This is why there is no preplanned programme for this training course. In the months before the course we will create the programme together with you and it will be based on your learning wishes and needs about self-directed learning. We´ll use various online tools to do this. A big part of the course is about yourself as a self-directed learner. You will go through this experience in order to better understand the concept, the implications and the ideas behind SDL. As a second step we will focus on how to support others in directing their own learning. For example in figuring out how to balance providing support with giving space and freedom. Or how to transfer self-directed learning into your given working context.
