Events on location are still the planpolitik classic. Usually, the procedure is as follows: In the run-up to the event, organisational and content-related questions are discussed with the client (topic, target group, purpose, length etc.). Next, we carefully prepare the event’s content and methods. On the day, one or more event facilitators arrive on location – be it in Germany or abroad – and run the workshop. After evaluating the event with the participants and clients, they travel back to Berlin – or straight on to the next workshop.
That is how, over the past ten years, we have run over 1,000 events with around 30,000 participants. The list of different places we have visited in Germany alone has over 200 entries. Add to that 44 different locations in 32 countries abroad. We would love to come to you, too! It’s a big world, and there are still many places we haven’t been to but would like to visit…
“The future of education lies in online learning” is a commonplace notion by now. Today, most people spend the majority of their time at work as well as of their free time online. This is not always in order to learn something – but increasingly so: what’s on offer for learners is constantly being adapted to their needs and habits. And so we, too, adapted, offering online formats as well as our classic events on location. The range is already varied: we are offering online simulation games for content-related exchange via protected platforms as well as a learning platform for children about how social networks work (in development).
While experts agree that in the future a large part of education will take place online, the experience of running over 1,000 events on location keeps us convinced that the internet cannot replace everything. We believe that the so-called “blended learning” formats (meaning a combination of standard on-location events and online formats) have a special potential. It is vital that the advantages of both modes are further interconnected. Therefore, we have already begun to combine online elements with traditional on-location events – and the number of these formats will continue to grow.
