Second edition of the BePart training
This module belongs to Capacity Building Programme II
In this Module we will talk about Participation: what is (and what is not) a participatory process in school, the power structures in the classroom and at school, and what is facilitation. We will also work on recognising in which areas student participation is allowed and in which not, and analyse why.
The online session for this module will be on Thursday, October 14, from 14 to 17h CET (Central European Time). We have a three-hour session for learning, reflecting and sharing, so we ask you to dedicate the time to the proposed autonomous work, as it is essential to take advantage of this training.
to be done before the online workshop on October 14
Enter the welcome forum and tell us something about yourself: where are you from, which subjects are you teaching, what is your specialisation, what are your motivations with this project, or anything you want to share with us.
Read the four initial chapters of the co-creation manual.
Also, try to have time to read the recommended documents, which will give you a deeper understanding and knowledge about participation, facilitation and power.
Analyse the case of your school: in which areas is the participation of students in decision making allowed and in which areas is it not? You could think, for example, on content of the classes, specific pots of budget, use of school’s physical space, extra curricular activities, evaluations.. etc.
Try and analyse why this could be, and write down your reflections and comments. Your answer will be anonymous but if you feel comfortable, you will be able to share your response with the group in the online workshop.
