The majority of today’s workplace learning follows the traditional classroom model. With that I mean an unidirectional focus on transfer of content, “the banking concept of education” as Paulo Freire used to call. In this context, learners are depositories and educators depositor of content, transferring from one mind to the other.
I have been involved with education for the last 18 years. Throughout my career, I have always challenged the traditional educational system, moving away from reductive and disjunctive learning processes. My approach is to invite people to be designers of their learning; for that I provide educational practices that are more aligned with the real demands of a complex world.
I like to call that an ecology of learning, which means that learning is an open and complex process comprising elements that are not just content but also context. The combination of content with context create a dynamic environment where knowledge is not just presented but also co-created.
In my practice I develop experiential learning processes where knowledge is created through the embodiment of the experience. I host lecturers, courses and workshops in a variety of topics. I also design learning processes supporting students and professionals to co-create environments for life-long learning. That means a supportive environment where interaction and collaboration can enable new learning, ideas and practices.
