Episode 12 / March 30th, 2020
Today’s guest is Christer Windeløv-Lidzélius from the Danish university, think tank and educational hub Kaospilot. Kaospilot is among the most essential spots where professionals from the cultural sphere look towards to build cultural leadership as well as pedagogical skills. They have built their brand on experienced-based learning. Kaospilots are experts in designing learning experiences for groups which have been an inspiration for many people in the arts and education. But how can experiential learning work if there is no shared experience to learn from?
