5 days of creative learning experience and revelation of concepts such as
Blooms Taxonomy – BOPPPS Model – VAK – Constructive Alignment – KSA*Following last year’s successful course experience, the Department for International Police Missions of the LAFP in NRW (Germany) repeated the “Training of Trainers” course in co-operation with the European Security and Defence College (ESDC) in November 2019. The “Training of Trainers” is a mature course offered since many years at a national and international level for police officers as well as for CEPOL. Targeted are trainers and subject matter experts, who are involved in learning related events such as trainings, workshops and seminars in a national as well as in an international context. Training stands for change and constant improvement. The lasting impact of training depends on the methodologies applied to allow participants to appropriate the delivered content and to be able to transmit and pass on their expertise and knowledge in a comprehensive manner. The aim of this course is to enable participants to convey and transfer their respective expertise and knowledge to their specific audiences. It focuses rather on the “how” than on the “what” to teach or to train. Once methodological skills are properly acquired, they can be used in interchangeable formats. From 25th to 29th November 2019, ten participants from EUMM Georgia, the European Commission, representatives of civilian, police and military background were given the opportunity to become acquainted with the principles of adult learning. Participants were introduced to approaches and methodologies such as the Blooms Taxonomy and the BOPPPS model and experimented with different didactical tools in an interactively challenging and creative manner.
