European workshop: the research-action training

Monday 30 September 2013

All the versions of this article: [English] [Español] [Français]

Lire et Ecrire Communauté française (Belgium) proposes a thematic workshop in Brussels, from 12 to 19 April 2014.

A research-action training starts from a real unsatisfactory situation a group has to face and is willing to overcome. The group of learners will have to combine two attitudes to find a solution: behaving alternately as a researcher and as an actor.

Unfortunately, this method is not frequently used in adult literacy work. It is, however, a fantastic tool linking access to basic skills and greater self-determination within a collective project.

This workshop is for European specialists in charge of basic skills courses for adults and engaged in combating illiteracy:

  • literacy providers
  • literacy practitioners
  • heads of associations of popular education
  • learners.

Languages used for the workshop will be French and Spanish. Participants must be fluent in one of these two languages.

20 places are available for the European participants, and 10 for the Belgian ones. Note that Belgian participants must pay themselves the costs of their travel and stay.

Registration before 15 January 2014.
