The session took place online, on 13 September, and was intended for the body of lecturers of the ACAD-Active for Health project, promoted by the pela Escola Nacional de Saúde Pública (National School of Public Health), with the support of Roche.

The Academia para a Capacitação das Associações de Doentes (Academy for the Empowerment of Patient Associations) (ACAD), a project promoted by the Escola Nacional de Saúde Pública (National School of Public Health) (ENSP-NOVA), with the support of Roche, and the NGO AIDGLOBAL – Acção e Integração para o Desenvolvimento Global (AIDGLOBAL – Action and Integration for Global Development) promoted, in the afternoon of 13 September, a session on dynamics of non-formal education for the body of lecturers who make up the fourth edition of the Academy.

The programmatic structure of the session considered the approach to a set of strategies, methods and training techniques that can contribute to support a dynamic, interactive and participatory learning, through non-formal education.

Through the Multiple Intelligences Theory of psychologist Howard Gardner, the Learning Pyramid of psychiatrist William Glasser, and the use of several interactive and participative platforms such as Jamboard, Padlet and Mentimeter, AIDGLOBAL sought to share some tools in order to strengthen the knowledge and skills of the participants who are part of the body of lecturers of the fourth edition of ACAD.

Through this session, ACAD seeks to contribute to making its training programme increasingly participatory, dynamic and engaging for Patient Organisations, making use of the advantages provided by existing digital platforms.
