Training Course – SemiFit on Citizenship Education – Germany
April 29, 2019 - May 5, 2019
Are you active in EDC/HRE, global education, sustainable development, work for diversity and against any forms of discrimination, democratic capacities development? Do you support youth participation and power sharing? Are you interested in learning from other practitioners approaches to prevention work? Do you want to engage in dialogue with experienced practitioners on quality and impact in a connected world? Do you have interesting methods and processes for designing learning ventures? Are you involved in research and have sound findings to test or disseminate? Is there a learning format you feel proud of and would like to share with peers?
This training course aims to provide a space for experienced educational practitioners to exchange competences and experiences on areas of Citizenship Education with a focus on quality and trainers’ competences.With this new edition of Semifit we aim to create space for dialogue and innovation around Citizenship Education under the Erasmus+ context. We live in a connected world digitally and physically. At the same time we feel more isolated and polarized.
Youth work and Citizenship education have a key role in supporting young people in building democratic capacities, politically relating to emancipation and solidarity, developing consciousness and acting politically. Youth work and CE aim at enhancing participation and self-efficacy, which is seen to be key for developing trust and a standing as citizen in our ever changing societies. The rise of right- wing populism on the one and radicalisation on the other hand finds EDC with young people and youth work in a biased position between democratic competences development and preventing from anti-pluralist and anti-democratic temptation.
Specific objectives of the training are the following:
People: Bringing together educational practitioners from different fields;
Space: Designing a space of co-creation and active participation;
Topic: Developing and exchanging competences and experiences on specific areas of training;
Resources: Co-Creation of tangible resources as a result of seminars’ activities;
Follow-up: Participants will implement what they have gained (methodology, tools and connections) in their local reality.
