Course objectives and programmatic details:

Non formal education and surroundings


The word education has different meanings (and approaches!) according to the context where it is used. This training combines the principles of formal education -school system- with the methods of non formal one, developing better learning environments for pupils and teachers.

The main concepts we will work on, are:

  • a happier student is a better learner
  • experience is a fundamental part of learning
  • the importance of the environment
  • the teacher as a facilitator of the learning process
  • the importance of the acquired competences

A variety of NFE methods will be applied during this training course, to give the possibility to the trainees to test themselves before experiencing with the class.

Key competences acquired by participants

Here are the main objectives of the training:

  • getting familiar with the concept of NFE, non formal and informal learning
  • being able to include NFE elements into daily lesson
  • to develop innovative methods including digital tools for teaching
  • to explore different possibilities of testing students’ learning
  • to design a supportive learning environment
