Actitivity-based education

 To provide a prerequisite for effective learning, the pedagogical activity-frames during the education are varied. Some examples are lectures, demonstrations, film elements, analyses (filtering), guided training sessions, exchange of experience, reflection and transfer of knowledge and competence.

The organization of the material and a great variety of pedagogical activity-frames are prerequisites for effective learning and building of competence. The program is designed so that self-development, collaboration training and leadership development is a continuous process during the education, as well as self-evaluation and supervision.
