Certificate course “Learning Facilitator” for people in crisis regions
Talented young people in refugee camps and conflict regions are enrolled as students at the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt and participate in the continuing education course "Learning Facilitator".
This academic networking is the result of the successful collaboration between the KU, Jesuit Worldwide Learning (JWL) and the company Seitwerk GmbH.
The course is offered in a blended learning format with a duration of 24 weeks in total. Students meet at least two times a week for group work and discussions in learning centers with internet access in India, Sri-Lanka, Myanmar, Afghanistan and Malawi. In addition, they can submit their assignments via virtual global classrooms and work with lecturers from Germany and the USA who give students constructive feedback and evaluate their performance.
In addition to theoretical knowledge, course participants also gain practical experience in a two-month internship. Upon successful completion of the course, they are awarded the "Learning Facilitator" certificate by the University. They can take on supporting teaching activities at various organizations and thus become educational multipliers as teachers, lecturers, tutors, mentors and coaches.
