THE ART & CRAFT OF DESIGNING & FACILITATING LEARNING SPACES MASTERCLASS
A three-day masterclass for educators & trainers to explore experiential ways of learning in order to inspire, facilitate and design for creativity, innovation & risk in learning spaces & education.
The programme is built around a rigorous training platform that dynamically combines practice, reflection and theory. You will have the opportunity not only to talk about your ideas for pedagogical and methodological change, but also practice and develop them! The programme will radically change your approach, help you grow as an individual and gain new perspectives. Read more about the core KP pedagogical platform here

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.”

‘What a great experience! The facilitator used smart techniques to guide us through the education design process. In particular, the “learning spaces” concept opened up my mind. I am inspired to adopt a similar education in Albania.’
Elsi Rizvanolli, Executive Director, Akademia e Pilotëve, Albania
‘I am absolutely convinced that the Kaospilots’ educational model is on the right track for the construction of both a new society and economy, because the course not only provides the foundations for understanding a more efficient way of learning, but also encompasses a human-centred approach in which values, practices and knowledge are merged. As a result, this course fosters the engagement and the sense of ownership in learning, and furthermore, creates qualified happy people.’
Catherine Lippuner, ETH Sustainability, Zurich.
‘I really enjoyed the 3 days tremendously. I think it was KP in action in the best of sense. It was all there: surprise, action, reflection, substance, variation, deep learning, evaluation, presentation and pushing…’
