Holistic Experiential Education and Artistic Approaches for Resilience and Work Engagement Tools for Adult Educators
What is HEART?
HEART is an Erasmus+ KA2 project to increase the quality of adult education and training by developing adult educators competences, awareness and knowledge linked to work engagement using a new training method - the synergy of outdoor experiential education and art methodologies- and by creating a more committed, engaging and professional environment inside their organisations.
Why is important?
The burnout within helping professions – including educators – has been known since decades, and by now a solid research and practical intervention basis exists linked to it. However, burnout continues to be a severe issue until today.
According to our experience drawn from previous projects and activities, educators, their organisations and managers lack knowledge and awareness of the burnout syndrome and its potential prevention techniques.
Timely interventions are essential to prevent burnout, otherwise its later stages would involve physical, emotional and mental exhaustion from which it is difficult to recover.
To tackle above issues, a transnational partnership composed of 6 partners from 5 countries developed the HEART project.
