[call for applications] ADVANCED PERFORMANCE TRAINING - postgraduate program / deadline: 10.08.2008. / Belgium


starts in January 2009
deadline: 10th of August 2008

APT is post-graduate training programme, part of PoPoK. It is an open research environment, based on the principles of self-education and collaboration. During a 12 month trajectory the participants are invited to develop their personal research project, in 3 separate blocks of 3 months. The learning zone of APT is defined on the one hand by the sharing of the research results of the participants (in discussions, showings, the development and sharing of tools, methodologies, etc...), and on the other hand the programme is constructed out of the needs for information or assistance of every one of them. That way APT provides a tailor-made programme of both practical, theoretical and technical working sessions, in matching the adequate material and ad hoc teaching staff to every single project that is developed.. For more information about APT, the programme, the guest curators and research projects of the current participants, consult our collaborative website
