27 Jun Checklist: Participatory Design of Educational Formats
Do you want young people to participate in the design of educational formats? Our checklist shows what has to be taken into account.
“Peer education” denotes a choice of approach to knowledge transfer that begins from an equal footing. This is why educational programs commensurate with such an approach will be run by young peer trainers whose own experiences can offer concrete points of connection with the life-worlds of the participants, their contemporaries. Through their own educational praxis, peer trainers are able to develop a great deal of experiential knowledge for themselves in finding ways to access and relate to young target groups. In a participatory process, this practical knowledge can be systematically compiled and utilised. A participatory approach of this kind was implemented in the project Understanding Europe through the concept of focus groups on the development of inclusive educational formats.
