Research on the Alternative Pedagogical Methodology

The aspired result of this learning process is the creation of a methodology which can produce knowledge. The alternative pedagogical methodology will be based on Experiential Learning theory which can also help in developing skills for teachers based on their observations. A set of new skills will be developed that will enhance competency, supporting different needs and background and learning time. A new focus on creativity in relation to its importance in innovation and cultural education in relation to both individual identity and promoting intercultural understanding will be enhanced in the proposed training activities, in order to enable arts and culture curriculum to fulfill the diverse and wide-ranging aims.

The InArt2DiverCity alternative pedagogical methodology will be based on Experiential Learning theory which can also help in developing skills for teachers based on their observations. In the context of this project, experiential learning will utilize learning from experience and learning by doing to immerse trainers in “an experience and then encourage reflection about the experience to develop new skills, new attitudes or new ways of thinking”. We base our training content on the results of the field research and the needs analysis report on the educational needs that was carried out for the Intellectual Output 1. In order to collect information from a representative sample, each partner country involved participants from the direct target groups (young adults studying Fine Arts, Fine Arts trainers) and from indirect target groups (youth groups and young local artists).

This research served the purpose of registering the needs and recommendations, while drawing conclusions based on those real needs. Read more at http://inart2divercity.eu/assets/files/O2/Alternative_Pedagogical_Met hodology.pdf
