"My experience with Learnlife helped me start an unlearning process, refresh my beliefs about what I thought learning should look like, start thinking outside the box, and believe that it is possible to give kids a voice and reinvent learning. They are my mentors and my North Star for the change I want to make in Romania."

More about the workshops

What is your vision statement for learning?

Stephen Harris & Joyce Mininger

​​A strategic roadmap needs to have a team who are capable of aligning with the vision and putting it into action. This workshop looks at some different ways different organisations have created training programs to support innovation.

Guiding questions:

  • How do you find the best people? 
  • How do you keep the best people? 
  • How do you develop your people?


  • Discover some innovative strategies for selecting team members

Leticia Lipp & Stephen Harris


Workshop 3: Frameworks to enhance autonomous learning

People all over the world talk about students growing independent learning skills - but have few ideas around how to systematically do this. Like many other skills, autonomous learning can be nurtured by the consistent use of a framework that is understood and appreciated by everyone - learners and educators

Guiding questions:

  • What is autonomous learning?
  • Why is it an important goal?
  • How do we grow autonomous learning skills in ourselves?
  • How do we grow autonomous learning skills in learners?


  • Be introduced to the Learnlife Stages of Autonomy framework
  • Become conversant in how they might adapt the framework to suit their own context
  • Understand how ‘soft skills’ can be developed in a sensitive and supportive manner, integrated into everything that is undertaken in the Hub programs
