11-19 April 2016
The location will be Sępólno Krajeńskie, POLAND
Arrival to TC venue: APRIL 11, 2016 Departure from TC venue: APRIL 19, 2016
Sępólno Krajeńskie it is a small town located in Kujavian-Pomeranian voivodship, about 350 km from the capital of Poland – Warsaw, with the population of about 10 000 inhabitants. Cozy, quiet, friendly place with the lake in the centre, surrounded by beautiful nature will be perfect place for successful learning process.
The general idea of this training course is to provide a chance for people that work with youth (youth workers, youth leaders, educators that work with young people outside formal education settings) to experience and discover elements of various movement exercises and contemporary dance that could be used as a valuable tool for providing new non-formal learning opportunities for youth. Kinesthetic or bodily learning is often one of the most neglected ways of learning, so, discovering the power of it and developing skills on how it could be used in the youth work would provide a great quality improvement and innovation to the field.
The training course will be based on Experiential Learning approach and will include:
– Practical part: Experiencing series of exercises with movement and contemporary dance, discovering own body opportunities, developing creative way of expression and developing personal motivation to use kinesthetic learning
– Analyzing the experience: Becoming more aware about the power of kinesthetic expression and learning
– learning from own emotions and also discovering it from theoretical point of view
– Conceptualizing: Exploring opportunities for including more elements of kinesthetic learning and contemporary dance in youth work
– Developing skills on designing and implementing non-formal learning activities for/with youth that would be based on consciously chosen kinesthetic learning elements
– Developing concrete ideas on follow-up steps on using kinesthetic learning in youth work in local and international projects
