Methodology and the logic of the course

 

The course Networking on EVS (see programme grid) is based on the principles and practises of integrating and complementing non-formal education and formal education, youth worker and youth leader training.

In conjunction with the topics of the course, Networking on EVS, the learning process is constructed as follows:

-         based on the intrinsic motivation of the learner;

-         generally not implying the control of individual learning achievement;

-         learner centred and based on the experiences of participants;

-         based on a personal responsibility for learning, supported by a strong group dimension and a collective approach;

-         organised in order to enable participants to apply and transfer what they have learnt to their youth work practise;

-         organised taking into account the needs and motivation of participants and being open to regular feedback and evaluations

Participants will be called to reflect upon the possibility to initiate EVS projects in networks using their experience, creativity and the tools provided by trainers and the Action 2 officers from the National Agency in Romania .

The program of activities and contents are organized so as to allow a breeding ground for the maximum participation of the group. The working methods to be used during the seminar are: presentations, working groups, debates, round table discussions, simulations, outdoor activities, learning space dynamic, needs analysis, PEST and SWOT analysis, and role play.
