Overview |

In recent decades, the informal and non-formal education broadened their area of interest to the target audiences, diversifying their messages and recording a much stronger impact than the formal education. And this is happening taking into account that initial training for the teaching profession does not include explicit actions focused on the development of teaching skills specific directed to informal and non-formal education.

In this respect, we believe that policies and practices of the professionalization of the teaching career should clearly take into account the development of the related teachers’ skill related to informal and non-formal education, correlated with a series of objectives and specific contents. The proposed Workshop call all the teachers interested in both educational dimensions, having the objectives:

  • identifying the proper learning environments for the development of teachers’ professional and transversal competences;
  • offering and presenting of several best educational practices in informal and non-formal contexts;
  • designing a non-formal educational activity based on the 6E model (Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, Exchange, Evaluate).
