Grundtvig Learning Partnership 2010-2012
How can we create spaces in
which people with low educational achievement have the opportunity to bring
together their ideas and experiences? How can we identify spaces in which
common learning processes might originate? How can we generate the right atmosphere
in these spaces – an atmosphere furthering the readiness of those present to
get involved with one another and to engage in learning? How do spaces for
encounter with the potential of inspiring on a long-term basis originate?
Through learning effected at the club, at the cafe, at the museum, in the park,
or in the botanic garden free spaces and opportunities should be created.
Spaces for education are needed by those people who are willing to report on
their experiences in a humorous way. Learning in drop-in centers or meeting
places at which food is handed out to the needy, for example, also comprehends
learning from failure and from what can be achieved in teamwork.
intends to give a chance to speak in unusual spaces of experience to those
people who are threatened by poverty and social exclusion. In this way further
notice should be attracted to the aspect of spatial settings in the further
education of disadvantaged target groups. The methodology will both interlink
psychology, theory of knowledge, social education, and social studies and
concepts from architecture and cultural studies.
The website will
collect the documents on experiential and spatial didactic produced in the
course of the project and serve as an electronic guide. Spaces of experience
will create a sense of community and offer the opportunity to connect theory
and practice against the European lifelong learning-background.
The main common concern will
be to consider constructive and creative learning options and to
create a strategic
approach plan how helping skills and good learning and motivational conditions
for disadvantaged learners can be created.
The desired effect is to
improve skills and competences for the development of learning behavior,
bringing together a range of institutions working with educational settings to
reach adult learners with fewer opportunities.
