WHAT IS VIA EXPERIENTIA?

At a professional and personal level I learned many things about experiential learning, about team work, about processing the experience. I became much more confident in myself, my inclinations, I found a stronger balance among my feelings, my fears, challenges, and the capacity to“enter the processes” that I am involved in.

Facilitating groups & leading teams

Via Experientia has been organising courses on experiential learning all over Europe since 1998.

We have developed this Long – Term Training Programme based on our experience with experiential, process-oriented programmes and reflective practice.

Working together in the Via Experientia partnership for many years provides us with a rich history of shared training experiences and learning journeys.

This encourages us to continue our discoveries and share our findings in personal and professional development by increasing adult educators, trainers and managers’access to professional training courses on experiential education methodology.

Our current focus is to empower participants to develop and use a reflective approach in their work – in education, management and other fields.

THIS PROGRAMME IS OPEN FOR:

  • Educators
  • Managers
  • Trainers
    working with teams and groups in different sectors of business, education (both formal and non-formal), training, personal or human resource development.
Namely I feel more confident and authentic, and I feel capable of using feedback, challenge and motivate groups Partecipant
