Methodos - school without teachers;-)

You wonder, how this could be true?

Yes it is like Team Academy in Jyväskylä, Finland, has students and yet no professors or classes a similar thing has happened in a beautiful city in southern Germany: Freiburg im Breisgau.

Methodos e.V. the initiative was called and the scholars made their very own learning contract (with the final goal of getting through the examens with good grades!).

You don't need teaches the traditional way, other ways are also possible!

Why not offer them on a broader range?

Are there other such initiatives?

Best regards and always seeking for exceptional learning environments

PS.: Thanks to Gerold Keefer, member of the group Lean Thinking at XING, who gave me the tip while sitting in Leipzig in early summer and I was telling him about the 3rd SoL Global Forum where I met some TA folks (Monkey Business) earlier in April this year.
