The Transformation Society was invited by the UnEntretants organization in Valencia, Spain, to present a future vision of communication and networking in education from a connectivist approach. We presented interactive workshops at the ComparTIC-Conference 2016 for the “Xarxa Cooperativa d’experiències TIC per al’ensenyament del Valencià.” This activity widened our training impact in a minority language context. The UnEntretants Organization is a virtual community that facilitates contact between teachers and teacher educators from all educational levels.
The Transformation Society collaborated in the coordination of a thought-leadership group for the World Federation of Associations of Teacher Education (WFATE) in April 2016. We conducted leadership training in an intercultural environment that integrated university research, professional training, and personal development for attendees from 40 different countries. This biannual conference brings together a significant network of teacher educators with representatives from North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. The next WFATE conference will be held in Melbourne, Australia in 2018.
Since 2015, the Transformation Society has collaborated with prestigious research institutions, such as Jaume Bofill Fundation and universities, like Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, to debate innovation methodologies for training and networking, and to engage influencers in social change.
Collaborative reflection is part of our professional development techniques, in several Languages. Our expereince can help others to compare opinions and principles on different training methodologies, or discover alternative paths for innovation in difficult contexts and encorage alternative creative thinking processes.
