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 are excited to invite you for a series of webinars we called Learning as a field in times of disruption and change


Here are the topics we cover:

These webinars are 2 1/2-hour long dynamic online sessions where you will explore the concept of Innovation in your practice with other colleagues from different parts of Europe. During these sessions you can expect: short and inspiring inputs by experts; interesting conversations with colleagues from other countries; and getting to know innovative practices in the field. Each webinar starts with some optional well-being activities, to support you in case you feel tired of facing a screen all day. (We know we do :slightly_smiling_face:!)

The webinars build on each other but are also stand-alone activities. 

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