2013 was a year full of first times for us, so also regarding the study session. This is a one week long training course for max 35 participants, which is fully funded by the Council of Europe (flight and accommodation). A preparatory team of 5 people are putting together a program about a specific theme and during the week participants can develop strategies and tools through non-formal education.
In 2013 the theme was political participation, 2014 is Deaf education and for the next years we will apply for this kind of study sessions again. It is very important for the CoE and for EUDY to disseminate information collected during the study session, so EUDY Academy is going to play an important role in the study sessions.
