"As an experienced secondary school teacher, I was initially reluctant to take part in the training at IDIconTOTO. I was therefore surprised to learn that andragogy largely uses different learning strategies and learning mechanisms to those used by children and young people. Thanks to the extremely professional lecturers, the excellent course materials, the regular practical exercises and the pleasant learning atmosphere, I was able to expand my knowledge and take away very specific methodological and didactic approaches for my course groups."

"The IDIconTOTO course enabled me to turn my hobby into a profession. The modules - all interesting and instructive - have given me the tools I need to perform confidently and competently in a professional learning environment."
Lise Stalder

"I completed the IDIconTOTO course and found it very enriching. The didactic input in the four modalities (reading, writing, understanding, speaking) was very structured and was accompanied by numerous practical exercises, which is why we were able to absorb a lot from the learners' perspective. The inputs and discussions on cultural differences were also very valuable as preparation for future teaching."
