If you want to go fast, go alone
If you want to go far, go with others
October 7th to 9th, 2019
The aim of the Learning by Leaving Conferences is to establish closer cooperation amongst the European mobility networks through regular exchange of information, best practices and peer-learning, as well as to better exploit synergies to boost the quality of service provision.
Why attend the Cagliari “Unconference”?
We are already high performing teams! This is a chance to speak with colleagues across networks about what can make us even better in terms of appropriate information, guidance and competencies.
Whatever you care about - from the practical to the philosophical - is welcome. We have challenging excellence and performance goals. We join to build on our strengths, uncover ways of implementing best practices across teams and even impact our organizations. We will meet because each one of us has something important to offer to this process. So, come prepared to work hard and have fun as we prepare to take a leap forward!
What will we focus on?
The Cagliari Conference is a milestone in a three-year journey.
We will pick up where we left off and take stock of the Cologne outcomes. Then, we will exchange views on themes or burning issues that we feel passionate about, such as:
Reaching our end users
- What should we do differently to get the employers on board?
- Can we think of new ways to reach our target groups?
Building our capacity
- As mobility experts, which competences should we (further) develop?
- Which tools/initiatives can help us improve our e-guidance capacity?
Making competences visible
- How can competences acquired abroad be transferred and recognized?
- What role can digitization play in the process?
We will be able to put forward any other topics concerning mobility recommendations that we feel strong about at any point.
So, let’s continue our journey and make it happen!
How will we work?
To promote everyone’s active engagement, we will adopt the Open Space Technology (OST) Method, a participant-driven process whose agenda is created by participants.
Open Space meetings are referred to as “self-organizing” or “unconferences” because both the agenda and the discussions are developed by participants. And as the agenda is a work-in-progress, we do not know exactly which specific or additional issues will be addressed.
The outcomes - built into the process – mirror the genuine interests and sense of ownership of the participants.
Attend the Cagliari Learning by Leaving Conference and allow the European spirit to soar!
