AE-Pro e-training is becoming a success story

‘European e-training for Adult Educators’, initiated by the AE-Pro project, started with an introductory webinar in April. The project consortium met last week in Malmö, Sweden, to plan the next steps of the training and the project.

The AE-Pro project consortium is happily surprised of the interest the European adult education community has shown towards the e-training. Around 1,400 people have registered to the learning platform and sessions have attracted more than 100 participants each.

The project consortium met in Malmö, Sweden, on 19–20 May 2015. They discussed the technical side of the training, the future of the learning platform and the up-coming tasks.

Familiarising with the European adult education

At the first session on April 14th, EAEA’s Secretary-General Gina Ebner and Policy Officer Tania Berman held an ‘Introductory session’ explaining the different partners and aspects of AE-Pro, and presented the course concept. Around 150 participants from all around Europe followed the live webinar.

The second session ‘Adult education policies at a European level’ took place mid-May. It reached more than 100 participants as well. The topic was presented by Martina Ní Cheallaigh from the Adult Education Unit of the European Commission. She described the main actors on the European level, their agenda and the major challenges for adult education in Europe.

Participatory learning online

Both sessions were followed by numerous questions and a vivid discussion on the topic. Through the assignments participants were also asked to exchange their domestic experiences on adult education with participants from different countries. Up until today, over 200 additional participants watched the recordings of the sessions and participated in the assignments.

For the upcoming session of May 26th, ‘Civil society and life-long learning’, AE-Pro will offer a wide-spread view on relevant actors in the field. Representatives of NGOs like EUCIS-LLL, OBESSU, European Youth Forum, and ETUCE will offer an in-depth view on their work. The e-training continues until December and it is possible to participate also on individual sessions. Check out the training details from AE-Pro website.
