Learn to Change Resource Series

The L2C Resource Series has you in mind as a reader, teacher, trainer, facilitator. In this series we propose approaches for developing democratic practices and holistic learning, in a way that addresses the learner’s head, heart and hands.

The activities and methods in the booklets can be used in all sorts of contexts, be it schools, higher education, professional development… These approaches have been tried and tested in real-life situations, with real people of all ages and walks of life. We share them now in our series to support educators in their efforts to learn to change and change to learn.

L2C believes in the power of education to promote change in society. It is about each of us, as educators, as lifelong learners, as teachers, as parents, as social, political and cultural actors who care about and can act for change in education. We strive to transform our education structures and practices so that education serves the vision of the society we want to live in. We want to give voice to education practitioners so that they can engage in authentic, value-laden educational relationships that support  human rights and democracy. We re-think and transform education and pedagogy. Our mission is to develop individual and collective potential to co-create and actively participate in a sustainable, open, peaceful and happy society.

Our actions support the development of the whole person within a framework of social justice and creative human emancipation. Within this framework, L2C is committed to creating and offering training resources.

The Learn to Change Resource Series is part of a broader initiative to support educators and learners. Each booklet offers the detailed description of a six-hour training session for educators on a topic of interest related to democracy and human rights.

Resource Series 1: Building Identity Awareness
The Dynamic Nature of Culture and Identity

Building Identity Awareness – The Dynamic Nature of Culture and Identity is the first booklet in the series that will be published by Learn to Change on a regular basis.

The present resource consists of:

  • a brief description of the notion of identity and its importance to the development of particular attitudes, skills and knowledge related to democratic competence;
  • a 6-hour training session consisting of four reflective activities raising  awareness  of self-identity, sharing information and feelings about uniqueness, reflecting on the effects and consequences of stereotyping and prejudices, self-assessment and gathering participants’ feedback on the session;
  • all the task sheets and other materials  needed for the training session;
  • a list of references for further reading and viewing.

Q&A: Answers to Questions about our Collective

In this article we answer some questions regarding the decision to transform Learn to Change from an association to a collective.

What we mean by Collective and how you can join us

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 is launching an exploration: Announcement for the Collective

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”
