Professionals in adult education, whether in general or professional continuing education practice, increasingly come into situations where polarizingly fought out positions on political, social or personal events trigger massive disruptions and negatively influence group dynamics to such an extent that a simple return to the actual learning topic is not possible. Be it the current topic of Corona and the regulations that apply to it or other topics: it seems in many cases that discussion, debating or arguing in the original sense no longer possible.

Our project “Controverse“ aims at improving respective competences of professionals in adult education, e.g. by developing, piloting and implementing the Controverse Experience Box (“Fair Disputes“) and the Controverse Showcases in English, German and Norwegian language.
