Next IPLE International Seminar in Catalonia



IPLE’s 20th International Seminar
in co-operation with IDAP (Vilafranca del Penedès, Catalonia/Spain):


“Productive Learning – a new educational approach, new methods, a new role for teachers”


from 17 to 21 November 2008, in Vilafranca del Penedès



Dear Madam or Sir,

Dear colleagues and friends,


The Institute for Productive Learning in Europe (IPLE), Berlin, invites you to participate in IPLE’s 20th International Seminar


“Productive Learning – a new educational approach, new methods,
a new role for teachers”


which will be held from November 17 to 21, 2008, in Vilafranca del Penedès (Catalonia/Spain). The seminar will be organised in co-operation of the IPLE and the Institut d’Aprenentatge Productiu (IDAP) of the Town Hall of Vilafranca del Penedès.


The seminar is addressed to those schools and educators who have just introduced or are introducing Productive Learning into their educational system. In Bulgaria, Moldavia, Lithuania, Spain/ Catalonia, but also in two States of Germany, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Saxony, just now schools have started with groups of Productive Learning or are planning to start next year.


But the seminar is also addressed to “old fellows” because it offers the chance to exchange experiences internationally and to support the newcomers. In Productive Learning we never will finish to develop our concepts and methods.


The seminar will give information and impulses concerning important aspects of the seminar topic by reports and key speeches. The aspects will be discussed and deepened in workshops. In small groups seminar participants will exchange experiences and learn from each other; by a sequence of meetings they have the opportunity to build up an intense communication.


Key speeches:

1.                  Productive Learning – what is it? (introduction of seminar)

2.                  Opening up work experiences for Productive Learning

3.                  The new role of being an educator in Productive Learning



1.                  Skills for work, skills for life – what do our students need to grow personally?

2.                  What is the new role of Productive Learning educators and which competences do they need?

3.                  How to get “practice places” in Productive Learning?

4.                  How to bring together work experiences and school learning?

5.                  How to counsel students’ learning and development?

6.                  How does Productive Learning prepare students to the world of work?


Besides PL educators who are planning an international exchange of students can come together; you have the chance to find partners for your programme and to start exchange relations. There will also be organised visits of schools and meetings with educators in Catalonia.


 Enclosed you get the provisional programme of the seminar; it is provisional because it can only be planned when we know about the group.


 Hoping to find your interest in the seminar we are waiting for your response and send you our best regards.




Prof. Dr. Jens Schneider, IPLE                                Mercè Marcé, IDAP
