Immersive educational formations
Immersive educational formation are learning projects - designed and facilitated by FGVces - in which experiences and relationships are the main vectors for discovery and knowledge; the immersive formations have a short duration (2 to 15 days) with a more intense and constant rhythm of encounters.
Through direct contact with the multiple manifestations of reality, the main objective of immersions is to expand knowledge of the self and the whole, through dialogue with different players, body activities, group dynamics, trips and visits outside the school or organizational environment, aiming to allow deep reflections on sustainability issues.
The immersions take place in FGV-EAESP undergraduate and graduate courses - live or online (with synchronous and asynchronous hours) - and can also be customized for other audiences such as trainees, public or private managers, teachers, etc.
