On 28th September 2017 the project coordinator, Galina Kushanova, took part in the conference The Adult Educator and Innovation 27 – 28th September 2017, Lund, Sweden presenting the Nordplus Adult project “Step forward into growth” to educators, workplace representatives, trainers, and managers.
The aims of the conference:
- exchange perspectives on existing Nordic projects and results from initiatives of the Nordic Council of Ministers, NVL and Nordplus Adult within the theme of “competence development of those who organise, facilitate, and carry out adult education”,
- get an overarching view of the needs of those who organise, facilitate, and carry out adult education in different contexts, e.g. public and private companies, vocational schools, liberal education, and third sector jobs,
- recommend new ideas of how to develop the competence of those who are engaged in the learning process of adult learners.
