The future of learning: what's love got to do with it?

I was travelling to our first MoveMakers preparation meeting in Berlin when one question hit my face from an advertisement in a travel magazine: “Is a cold weather alert a warning or an invitation?”. The way how this question was posed made me think about many other questions I am sitting with as an educator: what is the future of learning? How can we create meaningful spaces for inquiry, creativity, problem-solving? And what is our role in it as educators no matter what is the context of working?

LAB 1: Planting the seeds for the future of learning
 

The Dutch team is very excited to host the first MoveMakers LAB!

Next week, 32 educators, facilitators and innovators from 5 different countries, will explore the challenges education is facing nowadays and search for ways in which education can be transformed. The key questions we will explore are: What is really happening in the field of learning and education? What does it tell about the future of learning?  What can we do in order to start re-shaping and creating what is needed for our project to blossom?


 
Innovation in education - U.Lab: Seven Principles for Revolutionizing Higher Ed

At MoveMakers we strive to employ a wide variety of methods and tools, including Theory U, the Art of Hosting, Design Thinking, as well as didactical storytelling, visual facilitation and other co-creative practices. The programme is grounded in newest findings of constructivist didactics, adult education and the neuroscience of learning. It fosters an entrepreneurial spirit by promoting learner-centeredness, participatory methodologies and peer learning.

In the newsletters to come we will share further highlights of current approaches and experiments regarding bold methods and tools.
