Market place, learning workshop, self-learning centre

Forms of independent working

To the overview

While a market place is the meeting point for learning communities and self-organised learning, the concept of the learning workshop is used to develop teaching content in a learning-oriented manner. Workshop-based teaching is growing in importance in educational circles and gaining popularity among both pupils and teachers alike. 


The term ‘workshop’ should be understood quite literally. The work is focused and pupils are responsible for achieving their own predetermined learning goals. To do this, they make use of content and working materials provided by the teacher. 

Such self-responsible and self-organised work increases the joy of learning and promotes motivation through the experience of personal progress and success.
