Facilitating learning knowledge

The single elements of knowledge are summarised in different headlines that illustrate what “facilitating learning” means for youth workers knowledge-wise. The “cluster headlines” do not name knowledges as such; these can be found through clicking on the lists.

Knowledge about youth work, non-formal learning and its principles guides us to facilitate group and learning processes. + -

To start, it is good to know about:

  • the principles governing non-formal education
  • which methodologies are most suitable for use in youth work
  • how to (self-)assess competences      
  • the different ways in which people learn
  • how to identify and work with diverse “learning preferences” 
The dynamic of a group in a learning setting can be emotionally charged and challenging. + -

Adequately addressing this requires knowledge about:

  • mechanisms behind group processes and dynamics
  • privilege and power relations
  • emotions, their mechanisms and their meaning 
  • crisis mechanisms and management
Becoming knowledgeable about methods, methodology and developments requires looking for appropriate sources and resources. + -

This requires:

  • to know how to look for relevant information
  • to know how to share resources adequately
