Definition of Productive Learning by INEPS-Members (2nd congress of INEPS in 1992 in Peniche/Portugal):
"Productive Learning is an educational process leading to the development of a person's role in the community as well as bringing about change within the community itself. The process is realized by an itinerary of product-oriented activities in real life situations in an educational experience within a group that is facilitated by educators."
