Designing & Facilitating Learning Spaces
Learn the art & craft of experiential learning that fosters creativity, innovation and risk in education.
Designing education, and training programs, is not just about delivering the content, it is about engaging and inspiring the learner and enabling them to reach their fullest potential.
This calls for a new and different type of approach and a pedagogical framework that is learner-centred and gives greater autonomy and responsibility to the learner.
If you are ready to explore new models for designing and delivering education and learning strategies, then this programme will radically change your approach, help you grow as an individual and allow you to gain new perspectives.
Kaospilot Designing and Facilitating Learning Spaces program are two masterclasses aimed at educators and trainers. In the program we explore experiential ways to define, design and deliver offline, online & hybrid learning to integrate and facilitate increased engagement, mindsets, attitudes, and competencies.
PART 1 – THREE-DAY MASTERCLASS
In this first masterclass, you will be introduced and trained in experiential learning and teaching. You will also dive into the art of facilitation, curating learning processes, how to increase engagement and create safe learning spaces.
Intentionally working to improve your design facilitation skills can have a great impact on your ability to engage, inspire, and deliver your content to the learner and enabling them to reach their fullest potential.
Using Kaospilot methodology, you will be working hands-on with how to facilitate team-based learning in practice. Here, we will address the design, flow, sequence of tasks, effectiveness, and the use of resources. We will focus on communication patterns and address the appropriate levels of participation. You will also learn about group energy, momentum, and capability in the physical and psychological learning environment.
Participants will mainly be working and learning together in groups, offering peer-support, and sparring to keep learning and inspiring each other.

“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…”
Rolf Jucker, Team Leader SUI2, KAOSPILOT SWITZERLAND
The unique Kaospilot methodology and pedagogical approach is built around a rigorous training platform that dynamically combines practice, reflection, and theory. You will be applying tools and theory, which you also will be learning through practical exercises and application. Our approach enables you to acquire different mindsets for you to apply in your work, including experimentation, exploration, and taking initiative.
