The department of Pedagogy of the MCU Institute of Educational Psychology and Pedagogy invites you to join a seminar ‘Freedom Space’ dedicated to the project of an innovative youth recreation camp.
At the present day the process of socialization of the younger generation is quite controversial. Childhood as a period of life is becoming longer compared to previous generations, the current youth show tendencies to being childish and immature. The school system with its classroom-lesson mode, as well as extra-curricular activities in its present form neither aid to maturing of children, nor to being responsible for the decisions taken.
As an alternative, we suggest a special space where children can act independently, learning to take responsibility for their choices. An out-of-town youth recreation camp can serve as a good example of such a space. Our project — Summer Park or Youth Camp 2.0 — focuses upon personality development, which is seen as a key objective of education.
The model features a child’s choice as a core cultural practice that defines his or her individual trajectory, namely the choice of a project, of the way it is designed and implemented, the way of follow-up and, finally, the way the leisure time is spent.
Roman Lebedev, teacher at the Institute of Educational Psychology and Pedagogy will present the project of such a camp in more detail at the seminar.
Moderator of the seminar — Boris Kupriyanov, Professor at the Department of Pedagogy of the MCU Institute of Educational Psychology and Pedagogy, Doctor of Pedagogy.
To register for the seminar, please write at firstname.lastname@example.org before May 24.
