IPLE´s International Seminars

International Seminars for Productive Learning Educators

Since the start of Productive Learning in Berlin Schools (PLEBS) in 1996, INEPS Congresses have been supplemented by IPLE´s International Seminars. They are, like the INEPS congresses, part of the further education programme of the IPLE. These seminars enable communication about and a deeper understanding of topics that are relevant for the methodology of Productive Learning. The small numbers of participants afford the opportunity to qualify the educators who themselves are involved in the preparation of the seminars. Further information about these seminars can be found in the list of our publications.
