MoveMakers is a playground for learning and experimentation for a community of adult education practitioners. We encourage practitioners in education to take bold and innovative steps in shifting education and learning environment to meet the needs and dreams of 21st century learner.

Searching for what works

Innovation is a form of art that is practiced constantly. Every educator should develop the capacity to be curious, to do something without a map, dear to take risks. It entails the questioning mind: what is needed now to make learning meaningful? Innovation is not one time effort, but a constant search for what works. It is a practice where you set on a journey and build the road by walking. At the same time you stay flexible and responsive to any changes on the way.

As part of 1,5-year learning programme MoveMakers went to sensing journey in Netherlands, visiting quite diverse initiatives to understand innovation (f.e. B.AmsterdamHandshakeTeam AcademyKnowmadsFreedom Lab etc). Read more about some of the things we heard, saw and made sense of.

MoveMakers are on the MOVE!

In the last week of March, 35 educators from The Netherlands, Lithuania, Estonia, Germany and Denmark made their way to Schoorl, The Netherlands. The goal of this meeting was to launch the first LAB for MoveMakers – get to know some of the innovators within the MoveMakers group as well as across Netherlands and find some questions and answers around the theme of innovation in adult education in Europe.

In addition a dozen of MoveMakers met up in Berlin during the first weekend of July. The long weekend was designed as a sensing journey into Berlin – experiencing the city space, meeting the different organisations and individuals active in education innovation and having dialogues with the activists connecting the city space with learning.
