Introduction to our idea of anti-capitalist pedagogy. International Seminar at the Youth Education Center Kurt Löwenstein, from October 1st to October 8th, 2023. Register now and participate!
Our idea of education and the education systems in our societies is deeply connected to capitalism. In this year’s Training for Trainers (T4T) we want to explore different, non-capitalist approaches to and aspects of learning with and from each other. Non-capitalist pedagogy describes a wide variety of methods and concepts like amongst others experiential pedagogy and informal education. We will learn more about the entanglement of capitalism and education, alternative ways to learn and use tools for non-formal education. You’ll gain knowledge about planning and running seminars by exercising a variety of methods you certainly haven’t heard of in school or at university. As part of this, you’ll get the possibility to run your own short sessions in this safer space and work on your facilitation style. We’re looking forward welcoming you to our training!
The programme is developed by the international team of Kurt Löwenstein Education Centre. We will work in track sessions every day. But we will leave plenty of time per day for other parts of the programme participants self-organise, with the help of the international team, but also sometimes themselves. In committees we organise our free time and evenings. We will have time to share workshops also participants bring with them and spend one day on a field trip in Berlin. Much more will develop and happen.
The seminar will be conducted in English; thus, it will be rather hard to understand the instructions and fully participate if your English is limited. However, you may help each other out in delegations.
