The power of silent learners in a group – an EDEN NAP webinar

Have the courage to speak softly, to be yourself a silent learner. Diversity matters.

The next EDEN NAP webinar will be held on 15 March 2017, starting at 15:00 CET. The discussion will focus on the following questions:

  • How do we recognize silent learners?
  • What are the needs of silent learners?
  • How can we empower silent learners in a group context?

There are silent learners, there are noisy learners, and some are in between. Some learners are very fast and enthusiastic but become very quickly disillusioned, whilst others start slowly, think more without expressing themselves aloud but when they do open their mouths, everyone listens.

We may sometimes believe that silent learners are not interested, difficult to communicate with or maybe even lazy. But maybe we have to delay our judgement. In some countries introverts are considered as “normal” whilst extroverts are the ones with a problem.

What happens when silent learners have to learn in groups? Can we help the group to understand the silent learner? Can we make the silent learner proud and more secure about her/his function in the collaboration process? Could we also encourage solitary learning in the group?

Join us to discuss these issues! Read more about the webinar.
