    The School for Life: Understanding N.F.S. Grundtvig

    August 24th, 9:30 - 11am Pacific

    Presenter: Anders Holm

    Learn about the philosopher who first wrote about a folk school or “school for life”. Anders Holm, the author of the Essential Grundtvig, will introduce the life, work, and impact of Grundtvig. Grundtvig is a tremendous force in Denmark and has broad influence around the world including within the current North American Folk School Movement. Practitioners and scholars from various fields increasingly show interest in his life, ideas, and the spread of his influence. Grundtvig's work was a force for creating democracy in Denmark and continues to support democracies around the world.

    In this 90-minute webinar and discussion, Anders will provide an overview of Grundtvig’s life and work followed by reflections on Grundtvig’s impact on Denmark and the world. Participants will then have the opportunity to discuss Grundtvig’s influence and/or impact in their own context in small groups to include educational impacts, political impacts, and more.

    This webinar is funded through the Folk Education Network AmeriCorps ORE Grant. This material is based upon work funded by the Office of Research and Evaluation at AmeriCorps under Grant No. 22REACA001 through the National Service and Civic Engagement research grant competition.

    Harvesting Impact at Folk Schools

    June 15, 2023, 1pm Eastern
    Presenter: Jennifer DeCoste

    Data Collection Methods at LifeSchoolHouse: Jennifer DeCoste, founder of the LifeSchoolHouse network in Nova Scotia, Canada, will present her organization’s creative and intentional Basket of Data Collection Tools and Methods. In order to measure meaningful impact, the LifeSchoolHouse has developed user-friendly methods to “emphasize information about the changes we are creating at individual and community levels, rather than feedback about any one event and how it was delivered”. 

    In this webinar, learn how the Harvesting Our Impact project was developed out of the desire to measure impact at folk schools, to understand how the project was implemented and the results LifeSchoolHouse has seen, and to learn how to implement similar data collection tools and methods at your own folk school or organization.

    This webinar is funded through the Folk Education Network AmeriCorps ORE Grant. This material is based upon work funded by the Office of Research and Evaluation at AmeriCorps under Grant No. 22REACA001 through the National Service and Civic Engagement research grant competition.
