Creating and Maintaining Safe Spaces in Adult Learning

Exploring the Complexities of Safe Spaces in Adult Learning: Blended Training for Educators & Organisers

The concept of safe space is a complex one and can relate to different elements of educational practice, whether it is connected to the physical aspect of the space, the online environment, or the role of the trainers, organisers and/or learners in creating a safe learning setting. During the training, offered in a blended format, we will explore the power dynamics and decolonial approaches in adult learning and education, public pedagogy and the relationship between safety and space. We will also look at practical ways of co-creating a safe space together with learners.

The training will target adult educators and organisers of adult learning courses. Participation fees will apply. A detailed programme and a call for participants will be published in November 2023.
