The Summer School is open for different types of practitioners in education up to a total capacity of about 70-80 places.
The Summer School is free of charge and the organisers will cover related travel and subsistence costs for participants.
The completion of the training will be certified on the basis of workload and learning outcomes.
Participants will be selected according to three criteria: profile, language competence and commitment:
- Profile: Teachers, school heads, parent representatives, community representatives, school psychologists, educators from the non-formal education sector, etc.)
- Language competence: Participants must be able to communicate in a working environment (minimum level B2) in either of the following language combinations: English; English and German; English and French.
- Commitment: Participants commit to actively participate throughout the full duration of the programme, to report on the Summer School and to undertake appropriate action to further disseminate the outcomes in their professional context.
The Summer School will deal with the different aspects of the theme “Promoting participation”. It will look at the diverse issues of participation in social, cultural, political and economic life, etc. and in particular at what school, and teachers and
educators, can do to promote the development of the attitudes, skills and knowledge which are necessary to be able to fully participate in life in a democratic society. Pedagogical and methodological issues will also be addressed throughout
such as cooperative learning for democratic education, innovation and creativity, fostering motivation and curiosity, education for personal development and the multiple purposes of education, the role of teachers and schools for democratic societies, etc.
Participants will have the possibility to choose their personalised learning curriculum from a range of offers. Common activities throughout the eight days will allow participants to work together as a whole group, to learn together and to exchange
ideas and experiences.
A public round table discussion on the topic “Social media as new forms of participation: which role for schools?” will offer an opportunity to address and reflect on an important educational issue and to interact with a wide variety of interested professionals.
