Our MOOC project

Introducing our Massive Open Online Course in Social Pedagogy Across Europe

We’ve been leading on an international project to develop a massive open online course in social pedagogy. The project involves 8 organisations from across 6 countries, all of which offer educational programmes on social pedagogy. Each team has been actively producing 8 sessions, throughout which we’ll introduce you to social pedagogy in the UK, Germany, Denmark, Spain, the Czech Republic, and Belgium. The project is co-funded by the European Union’s Erasmus+ programme, which means that the MOOC will be free to learners who wish to audit the course. Certification is optional and at a small fee (expected to be around £40). If you’re interested, you can find out more about this project and all partners in our MOOC brochure.

Join our free MOOC Fire Starter Webinar

As ‘education is not about filling an empty bucket but lighting a fire’ we are organising a fire starter webinar to share insights into the MOOC and how you can use the course within different organisational settings. The webinar will take place in November (date tbc) and draws on footage from our Fire Starter event at the University of Central Lancashire on the 6th of September, 2018.

To develop the MOOC we’ve been fortunate to bring together a great team of international partners with a broad range of expertise and a shared commitment to developing an exciting intercultural learning resource. You can watch short intro clips of all partners or find out more below.
