experienced based learning
Learning takes place through participants sharing their lived through experience with each other rather than by conveying theoretical knowledge.
It’s envisaged, that the course instructors work on a tandem basis, with each tandem consisting of at least a professionally educated expert and an expert by experience. The concept of this tandem has been implemented in the structure of the college right from the beginning. The knowledge gained by experience and the knowledge gained by a professional education are considered to be of equal value. By this change of perspective, people who cannot participate in other educational measures, or who drop out of them, can be reached.
