the right direction for training and learning

The Compass uses the metaphor of a navigational instrument to guide you through a repository of participatory learning, training and knowledge sharing methods.


The Compass orients you in the way you design learning and training activities. It is a starting point that can give you inspiration in the search for useful, effective and relevant learning and training methodologies.


Browse through the column on the left to find a learning or training aim that matches your objectives. Click on an aim to see more detailed options – selecting one of these will show you a list of relevant learning and training methodologies.


If you are searching for a particular methodology, click on “See all methodologies”, for an alphabetical list of the 60 methodologies.


The Compass also contains the Learning Management Cycle, located in the right-hand menu.
