Webinars: Learning as a field in times of disruption and change, November 2021 – April 2022

In the European Academy on Youth Work we want to support the professional development of youth workers and other professionals in youth work practice, policy and research, even in times of uncertainty, like the ones we are living today. For this reason, we invited stakeholders from the youth work community of practice and related fields to a series of webinars called Learning as a field in times of disruption and change

These webinars were 2 1/2-hour long dynamic online sessions where the participants explored the concept of Innovation in their practice with other colleagues from different parts of Europe. Each webinar included: short and inspiring inputs by experts; interesting conversations with colleagues from other countries; and getting to know innovative practices in the field.

In order to get an impression of the insights of each webinar, check out the visual summaries, which were created by our graphic recorder, Mireille van Bremen. You can also watch the recordings. Short articles about each webinar can be found in our news archive.

The webinars built on each other but were also conceived as stand-alone activities. 

Like the 2nd EAYW residential event, Learning as a field in times of disruption and change webinars were facilitated by Darko Markovic, Anita Silva and Laimonas Ragauskas. Well-being activities starting off each webinar were led by embodiment trainer Sandra Gojić. The insights gained during the webinars serve as a basis for further discussions and learning processes during the residential 2nd EAYW 2022 event.
