The Learning Design and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) Bootcamp #EDSBootcamp 2022 is divided into several phases, we begin with the selection of volunteer mentors, who will be trained according to the model so that they will then work hand in hand with the teams allocated in the development of their programs.
What is a Bootcamp Mentor?
- A peer, experienced in Learning Design or Education for Sustainable Development, who provides advice and guidance as the teams progress through the Bootcamp.
