BENEFITS TO YOUR INSTITUTION

An institution which is proactive and not reactive, working more effectively with 21st century learners and the complexity and uncertainty inherent in today’s world. Through oppening to and supporting new interpretations of your curricula, slowly develop, practice and implement new pedagogical strategies that value our contemporary “knowledge society” rather than the “industrial age” ways of teaching.

 

The working definition of facilitation that we like, will focus, explore and which represents how we facilitate and utilize team based learning at the Kaospilot is supported by Tom Justice and David Jamieson “… what needs to be done; who needs to be involved; design, flow, and sequence of tasks; communications patterns, effectiveness, and completeness; appropriate levels of participation and the use of resources; group energy, momentum, and capability; the physical and psychological environment.”

The course talks about the core thought-processes and attitudes that an educator should have. Its democratic and the creative process is great for today’s youth that need a more progressive and liberating way of learning.

What has surprised me the most is that when we came back the last time the last group had a common experience which was sometime painful because what happens in the group is sometimes very personal and painful, but they have so much energy. Now there is no “walls” to someone else in another department anymore. They see each other a lot more and they share a common language. It surprised me that on such a short notice that could happen

‘This workshop was one of the best investments I’ve made for the course and for me professionally. Its impact was both immediate and long lasting and everyone who took part has been empowered by learning that we experienced over two intensive days, inspired by both the material and the way in which it is shared. Quite simply, it develops your mindset to embrace change and brings joy back into the learning experience for both staff and students!’
