The format of the non-conference allows the practitioners to meet and discuss the topical subjects. Let us forget boring reports, PowerPoint and keynote speakers. Even the agenda will be flexible.
The educator’s non-conference IS the Place for Learning. Register until 29.11.2015 incl. Registreeru kuni 29.11.2015 k.a. here
The ‘Place for Learning’ contains different places, where the educator can learn. We will talk about, e.g., physical space, start-up creation, innovations in adult education, virtual space, community of practice, the new adult education law, educator’s professional qualification, visualisation of learning, let alone many other topical subjects the educators may be keen on.
The work will be done inspired by four short speeches, followed by a discussion on eight different topics, which will be held in the “fishbowls”. Next, we will participate in a substantial lunch, hand over the professional qualification certificates to adult educators and total all the pluses during a general discussion circle. During the day, the educators will have the opportunity to get to know each other and socialise, share experiences, exchange thoughts and generate ideas concerning the future cooperation.
