What will the course bring?
Creativity is essential for the development of individuals, groups, organisations, society and humanity. It allows for new, unique and innovative discoveries and solutions. It also makes our lives more joyful and meaningful, helping us to grow as unique individuals. Although everybody has potential for creative thinking and taking creative action, many of adults do not use it as much as they could. We can say that their creativity is latent and the aim of this seminar is to awaken it. The seminar aims at providing those involved in adult education in understandings and tools that will allow them to make better use of their own creativity as well as stimulate creativity in adult learners. The specific objectives are the below:
The seminar uses active learning methods hence there will be plenty of group and individual exercises and experiential activities. Attention will be given to how to implement the findings and skills in real life situations after the seminar. Methods such as debate, art, role-play, body movement, individual mind management technologies and coaching will be used throughout the seminar. As the group will consist of individuals from different countries there will be plenty of opportunities for exploring various issues from different perspectives and learning from each other.
There will be a semi-structured interview conducted through series of emails; the interview aims to identify the participants’ particular training needs in order to fine-tune the training program to meet the needs of the individual participants, the group and the organisations they work/volunteer for. The participants will also receive a couple of “warm up” assignments prior to the seminar. Also useful information about Cyprus and mini dictionary with everyday life Greek expressions will be sent prior to their arrival.
The participants will be invited to join Inspired Learning Forum – online platform that facilitates exchange of experiences among adult education professionals and learners. Moreover, 3 months after the seminar they will be requested to answer a questionnaire in order to identify in what way they’ve been using skills they learnt on the seminar.
