Forum - The Power of Mutual Learning

How to Optimise Mutual Learning Before, During, and After an Activity


Tue, May 22, 2018

12:00 PM - 2:00 PM CET

Thon Hotel EU, Brussels, Belgium

Join us at the third Policy into Action Forum, ‘The Power of Mutual Learning’ , where we will continue to explore how to successfully design and deliver Mutual Learning in a European policy context. We will take a closer look at approaches that can be applied before, during and after a Mutual Learning activity to ensure that the learning is taken up, not only by individual participants, but also the organisations or countries they represent.

Key questions for discussion will include:
- How can the right participants be identified and engaged to participate in the Mutual Learning activity?
- What tools and methods can be used to facilitate the peer-to-peer exchange during the activity?
- What follow-up can be undertaken after the activity to optimise the learning outcomes and longer-term change?

Our speakers will be Ms Amandine De Coster-Lacourt from the Executive Agency for Small- and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) and Mr Dragomir Tzanev from the EnEffect Foundation. Together, they will present the Horizon 2020 BUILD UP Skills initiative that supports and develops multi-country qualification and training schemes for craftsmen and other on-site construction workers and systems installers in the building sector, as well as white collar workers (architects, etc.).

The presentations will be followed by discussion in smaller and varied groups to explore the above key questions and provide an opportunity to exchange experiences and ideas in relation to Mutual Learning.
