Deadline: ongoing

Describtion

The course introduces the concept of change-oriented adult education and how it can be used to manage the challenges of digitalisation in individual lives, communities and society in general. It highlights the core pillars of the concept of change-oriented adult education, and offers practical tips on how and when to use its specific methods to address challenges caused by digitalisation.

The course will also provide examples of good practices as well as insights from trainers and learners, who have experience of change-oriented adult education. It is mainly addressed to all adult education providers (adult educators, planners, managers etc.) working in organisations, community development programs or associations, and policymakers, but open to everyone interested in the topic.

Structure and methodology

The course will include 5 modules and run until the end of June.

Each module provides a mix of live webinars/podcasts/videos, resources, forum discussions and self-study. The community aspect is one of the strongest elements of the course, so participants are invited to use the platform’s forum to exchange ideas, inputs and proposals. The content planned and methodology used in this course has been shaped by a co-design survey circulated among partners’ dissemination channels.

The first module is titled “What is change-oriented adult education?” and will run officially between 27/04 and 10/05, but the course material will be accessible online afterwards.

SAVE THE DATE: The first live webinar will take place on Zoom on the 29th of April at 2pm (CEST)

Guest speakers for this first webinar will be Jyri Manninen, Professor of Adult and Continuing Education at the University of Eastern Finland and Irena Sgier Head of research, development and innovation at the Swiss Federation for adult learning.
