Title “REFLECTIVE PRACTICES” FOR PRACTITIONERS IN LIFELONG VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE CONTEXTS
Project Number LLP/LDV/TOI/08/IT/464
Project Type Transfer of Innovation
Marketing Text The project is aimed at goals of 1.empowerment of practitioners involved in LLVG activities, and 2. organisational development of centres in which such activities take place.
Summary Reflect-Or tends to 1. the practical implementation of a Participative Appreciative Action Research (PAAR) methodology in two LLVG centres in Rome 2. the diffusion and valorisation of such implementation in different contexts: in Bulgaria at the policy decision-making level; in the UK in already developed LLVG contexts; in other Italian situations (VET and LLVG in two Regions). The results will be diffused through ad hoc events and through a Virtual Community of Practice involving LLVG practitioners and decision-makers in Italy, Bulgaria, the UK and all over Europe.
The implementation of PAAR in the two LLVG centres is articulated in different phases: 1. context analysis (concerning practitioners and clients); reflective workshops (aimed at identifying important sources and resources for activity development); empowering meetings (aimed at transferring visions and tools); dynamic reports (aimed at representing the level of reflexivity and practical knowledge reached by the field actors).
The diffusion/valorisation of project's outcomes hinges on the replicability of PAAR in different contexts and on its plasticity in relation to local development exigencies.
