The main aim of the project is to develop reflection tools for supporting individual learning paths of adults.
New materials and ideas will improve quality in adult education and training and increase the level of learning outcomes. The adult educators who take part in the project will learn the necessity and ways of using various reflection methods for adults. During our partnership, we will also learn how to accompany, support, guide, and encourage the adult learner. We will share the knowledge we have from our previous experience and develop common guidelines and advice.
The project team consists of professionals who work with various groups of adults: adult educators, educational managers, teachers of compulsory and vocational schools, decision-makers, adult learners with immigrant background, long-term unemployed, housewives, entrepreneurs, etc. Transnational cooperation is necessary for taking into consideration peculiarities of different cultures and backgrounds to test the tools with various groups.
The project work is based on previous research, strategies of European education, and forecasts for future education.
The expected results of the partnership are:
1. Improvement of adult educators' skills in the partner institutions (developing learner-centred programmes, supporting reflection and self-directed learning, facilitating adult learning, improved fluency in English, skills of intercultural cooperation).
2. More learner-centred programmes in adult education.
The project brings together the collective expertise of six European organisations.
