Introduction

Teachers of all subjects from all types of schools (6-19) and other education professionals (school heads, parent representatives, community representatives, school psychologists, trainers, educators from the non-formal education sector, etc.) are invited to participate in the second Summer School of the Pestalozzi Programme in cooperation with the Academy of Bad Wildbad.

Common activities throughout the eight days allow participants to work together as a whole group, to learn together and to exchange ideas and experiences. A public round table debate offers the opportunity to address and reflect on important educational issues and to interact with a wider audience. The question the Round Table will address this year is “No Facebook for Schools! Social media… Participation… Education?”

For the remaining time, participants have the possibility to choose their personalised learning curriculum from a wide range of offers.

The training activities deal with various aspects of the overall theme “Promoting Participation”. In particular they focus on topics such as participation in social, cultural, political and economic life, etc. and in particular on 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.

After the training course the participants will be in better position to

                    raise awareness for the importance of promoting participation in education in their school environment (school head, colleagues, parents, learners)

                    understand the crucial role that learner participation plays for the success of their learning experience

                    promote participation through their professional practice in day-to-day teaching

                    take action to address non-participative aspects of their practice

                    contribute in their teaching and training practice to the development of the transversal attitudes, skills and knowledge necessary for living in diverse and democratic societies

The participants are also invited to join the Community of Practice of the Pestalozzi Programme, a network of education professionals equipped to continue the training on an international, national, regional and local level with a shared view of the competences which need to be developed and of an appropriate methodology of training and teaching.

Participants commit themselves to actively participate in all phases of the work: from the preparatory tasks (online or offline) before the Summer School and active participation throughout the whole duration of the Summer School to reporting, follow-up and dissemination after the Summer School.

The following pages give a brief overview of the different parts of the programme and provide practical information.
