MOOC Fire Starter Event

‘Education is about filling a pail but lighting a fire’


We are plased to invite you to our exclusive MOOC fire starter event to bring together as many people from our collective networks, who are willing to help us reach as many future MOOC learners as possible. Hosted by the University of Central Lancashire on the 6th of September, 2018, the event is an exclusive opportunity to find out more about the MOOC and our ambition:

  • Get a first look at the final MOOC before its official launch in January 2019,
  • Talk to some of the pilot learners and find out how they have used the MOOC to develop their practice and team culture,
  • Get in dialogue with our cross-national MOOC team from the 8 organisations involved, and
  • Learn how you can embed the MOOC in organisational practice, training and academic courses.

We have been developing the MOOC with the aim of providing an exciting and meaningful learning resource about central principles in social pedagogy and how these can enhance social pedagogical practice beyond national boundaries. And we are inviting you, because we hope you can help us make the MOOC freely available to interested learners across the globe. We hope you’ll be able to join us and become part of a dynamic international network committed to developing social pedagogy.

The fire starter event forms part of our Erasmus+ funded 3-year project and is therefore completely free to attend, with overnight accommodation for international guests and food provided. Please note that places are limited and allocated in accordance with our funding conditions. Please register here or contact us for further details.
