Training course for teachers on how to apply games as a tool

for personal development and social change

 

Short DESCRIPTION of the project:

In the framework of this training course we want to bring together 24 teachers from 10 countries who work with youth in non-formal settings in order for them to develop their competences on using games as a powerful non-formal learning tool that develops concrete competences among youth and promote social changes in the community.

Although many teachers might not be aware about it, by working with young people outside official formal curricula and providing non-formal activities, they are actually de facto becoming youth work practitioners.

With this training we want to emphasize that games don’t have to be just fun and entertaining way of spending the time. With the intention behind, the adequate structure and good skills of facilitation, games can also be used as an effective non-formal learning (NFL) tool that promotes personal development and positive changes in the society (f.e., develop greater understanding and appreciation of diversity and promote inclusion in society).

Profile of participants:

Due to unique character of the project, it is very crucial for us that Partner organisations spread the information through suitable channels and select relevant participants (we keep the right to reject participants that do not fit the profile).

By involving in this projects, it is crucial that participants realize that we expect their active involvement not only during the training, but also in preparation activities and also follow-up activities.
