E-LEARNING FOR 2035
Erasmus+ KA2 01.09.2019 – 31.08.2021
Adult education is the key to sustainability and prosperity of society in future. In order to help adult learners to be self-directed in their development, meet the requirements of the labour market, discover new jobs, cooperate on international level, we should start with the educators and contribute to extending and developing their competences.
The project partnership is represented by five organisations, working in the field of adult education:
EDUCRAFTOR, Finland; L.C. EDUCATIONAL, Cyprus; Ljudska univerza Jesenice, Slovenia; Sintagmi, Italy and Vestifex Adult Learning Centre, Estonia (the project coordinator).
The objectives of the project team:
1. To make a foresight for adult education in 2035 including overviews of the researches made worldwide and recommendations for adutl educators
2. To work out a e-learning course for adult educators “Competences 2035” with overview of all the main competences listed in future forecasts and focus on specific competences for adult educators according to the partners’ backgrounds and experience.
The selected competences are:
Personalised learning and holistic teaching (approaches of adult educators) – Vestifex Adult Education Centre, Estonia
Innovation and design thinking (creation of new content by adult educators) – Educraftor, Finland
Active learning and learning strategies, including unlearning and relearning (providing learners with a key for individual success) – LCEducational, Cyprus
Education for social entrepreneurship and community health (competences to support learners for a sustainable society) – Sintagmi, Italy
The first two groups of competences are connected first of all with adult educators’ profile, the third – with learner’s development on individual level and the last one – with learners’ influence on society.
3. To provide a validation model of the adult educator’s competences listed above. The responsible partner is Ljudska univerza Jesenice from Slovenia, which has a centre for validation of informal knowledge. They carry out procedures for adult educators learning validation and develop approaches for the monitoring and evaluation of key competences.
