„Please make mistakes”


22-23 September, 2016

Budapest, Hungary


In the Erasmus+ project „Guerrilla Literacy Learners” we bring together several stakeholders to discuss the mistery of mistake-making while learning a language (and not only!). Our aim is to foster literacy remedial strategies through the adoption of different techniques already used in narrative coaching, art of hosting or student-centred design. And we even suggest Guerrilla ways to assess learning through error-making!


Join us if you are a teacher, a student, a librarian or anyone who dares to make mistakes!
