Working in groups means to involve participants in a common action, while establishing true cooperative structures that support equal participation, interdependence and autonomy in learners.
We aim to establish learning experiences that embark all learners on the journey. Exclusion is a familiar covert phenomena and groups easily may succumb to it. This is why we pay specific attention to group dynamics and inclusive practices.
Because our training courses are based on Cooperative Learning, which is group work structured around the four principles of equity, interdependence, parallel and simultaneous interaction, learners get a first-hand experience of how effective, creative, and comprehensive, learning in a group can be – when everyone enjoys equal rights and is seen as a contributing and indispensable part of the whole. Cooperative principles create an evolutionary we-space where ‘miracles’ do happen, such as a welcoming and friendly environment, less frustration, increased readiness to deal with conflict in constructive ways, enhanced learner motivation, better learning and enhanced enjoyment of learning (Aronson, 2001).
In this article we answer some questions regarding the decision to transform Learn to Change from an association to a collective.
In this article, we talk about what we mean by Collective – the new form chosen by L2C – and how you can join it.
Learn to Change’s members held a General Assembly in fall 2022, in which the decision was taken to transform the association into a less formal, and more agile entity. Therefore, we will change status, going from an ‘organization’ to a less formal entity that we name “The collective”
If you feel you are committed to the vision and mission of the association, then your place is here.
We are sure that becoming a member will benefit you in many ways. Read the product description for more details or click sign up now.
