METHODOLOGY

Interactive and participative learning methods (experiential teaching and learning) and processes of formative and summative evaluation of participants’ learning.

Experiential learning is based on the reorganization of the relationships between concepts and theories on one hand and ‘archives’ of personal experiences on the other. Learning requires a willingness to recognize the inadequacy of previously acquired conceptual models along with the values on which they are based.

It is required the willingness to live/feel the processes in which one takes part without the protection afforded by identity, role, and ideology.

This painful passage occurs at different levels and involves necessarily long, non-linear processes which differ greatly both between and within subjects

APPROACH

Dealing with the uncertainty and complexity of organizational environments and interactive processes calls for clear, flexible, and dynamic ideas and practices. Traditional frameworks weighed down by complicated concepts and consolidated routines do not help when dealing with complex and open systems. There is the need of principles facilitating intersubjective discussion and supporting innovations and experimentation.

What is very helpful for working in groups is not a conceptual framework (which only helps to affirm identity and allay anxieties generated by its complexity), but an agile set of practical concepts and open theories that have addressed the aporias of collective action. Every social action is in fact influenced by at least three types of ever-present problems:

mistakes are, to some extent, repairable, whereas the dynamics of a relational system are not reversible;
the pace of organisational developments is not always knowledgeable and seldom can be fully manageable;
the outcomes of change depend on a set of actors and factors which are often unforeseen and, in any case, remain unpredictable.

‘Experiential learning’ is based upon the reorganization of the relationships between concepts and theories on the one hand and ‘archives’ of personal experiences on the other. Learning calls for a willingness to recognize the inadequacy of previously acquired conceptual models along with the values on which they are based. It is required the willingness to live/feel the processes in which one takes part without the protection afforded by identity, role, and ideology. This painful passage occurs at different levels and involves necessarily long, non-linear processes which differ greatly both between and within subjects.

The Learning to Learn (LtL) workshops aim to facilitate the careful selection, patient acquisition and critical consolidation of the conceptual and practical competencies the participants deem most effective for intervening, understanding, and transforming the institutional and social processes in which they live and work.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

By the end of the programme participants should be able to:

demonstrate an understanding of the latent dynamics in organizations;

identify the implicit and explicit processes influencing organizational practices;

analyse the processes and practices that contribute to overcoming organizational barriers and resistances.

Participants will work in groups to develop the following skills and competences:

  • Understanding of latent dynamics in organizations
  • Identification of organizational processes that influence institutional practices
  • Analysis of processes and methods useful for overcoming organizational blocks and resistances
  • Identification of the skills necessary for the management of the role Authority in decision-making processes
  • Elaboration of creative solutions for organizational dilemmas
  • Creation, development and management of teams and work groups
  • Management of inter-professional and inter-institutional collaboration
  • Identification of self-supervision and continuous learning processes..
