Significant changes in training and learning have been amplified as a result of Covid-19. This major shift concerned us all. We experienced, at the national and European levels, new forms of training and learning. Our organisations have been forced to reconsider skills development, both for trainers and learners. Provided that our learning approach - active and learner’s centred - will not change, we are here to build the “new normality”. There’s a common need to reflect on what happened since 2020 before looking to the future with awareness and plans.
The “new normality” will include a constant process of innovation, which can be achieved with different tools, approaches and content in both training and learning. Whatever innovation we choose, we have to consider its consequences on many aspects, including the training cycle process (from design to assessment), all people involved (in particular learners) and, of course, pedagogy.
We believe that innovation should not be done just for the sake of it. Innovation should rather be an attitude. And it has to serve our unchanged missions: reinforce, stimulate and support the trade union movement through education. Offering accessible training to our target audience, with a high level of quality, is a strategic priority: exploring novelties can help us in achieving it, whatever future challenges will look like.
Throughout EduDays we would like to achieve the following aims:
- Share: exchanging national experiences and visions on innovation in trade union education
- Connect: offer an inspiring opportunity for organisations to reinforce relationships and develop joint activities
- Involve: stimulate organisations in providing valuable input to debate at the European level
- Suggest: get feedback on what ETUI Education does
The working languages will be French and English.
