Learning Guide training
What is a Learning Guide?
At Learnlife we push for a big shift in education, and we support communities and individuals to move from a standardised teaching model to one built around personal learning.
From ‘Sage on the stage’, to ‘Guide on the side’. Learning Guides - educators who take the lead, facilitate and curate learning, co-design authentic experiences and empower learners and peers - are key in the schools and learning communities that want to cater to 21st-century needs.
Who is this training suitable for?
Learning Guide training is designed with two groups in mind:
- Education practitioners who want to make a positive change and impact in their community.
- Professionals who wish to make a career shift into innovative education.
What does it mean to train as a Learning Guide?
Committing to this training means to starting a transformational learning journey.
You can grow your skills as an educator by engaging in the online content modules according to your needs, desire and availability, or you can become a certified learning guide, and expand your professional qualifications. Beyond the training, you will have the opportunity to do in-person, hands-on training and create a portfolio of experiences.
Additionally, your profile will be shared among a growing community of partner hubs around the world.
This training includes:
- Transform your everyday practice, and create a lifelong learning capability
- Envision and contextualise a new and more authentic learning paradigm in your community
- Learn how to design programs, courses, and unique learning experiences
- Develop the core concepts, mental models, skills and tools needed to be a learning guide
- Update your skills to current practices that align better with your values and beliefs about learning
How is this training structured?
The training is organised into 12 clusters divided into a total of 48 modules. For a period of two years, we will run a different topic every fortnight. The first year is an introductory level, and the second year is more advanced.
