Welcome to the course Fostering Life Competences through Education

This course has been developed by Kornelia Lohynova, in close collaboration with the School Education Gateway.

Franklin Roosevelt, former American President once said: We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.

Of course, as educators, we would like to offer our children a better world and brighter future, but unfortunately it is not always in our hands. So what can we do as educators? We can equip our students with competences to adapt and thrive in a changing and challenging world.

In this course you will explore one of the key competences for lifelong learning, the “Personal, Social and Learning to Learn” competence. You will learn how to embed this key competence in your teaching practice through activities in your classroom.

All participants will have the opportunity to:

  • The language of communication is English
  • You can follow the course at your own pace. The only deadline you need to pay attention to is for the final peer assessment assignment
  • To get the most out of the course, you can participate in the course Facebook group and share your thoughts on Twitter using the course hashtag #MOOClifecomp
