Journalistic skills for adult educators

Adult educators very often use innovative training methods in the classroom, but struggle when it comes to sharing their experience in journals or blogs on adult education. The project “Let Europe know about Adult Education” (LEK-AE) tackles this issue by developing a curriculum for adult educators in journalism.

The project kicked-off successfully with a first meeting of the project partners in Copenhagen on 23 October. LEK-AE is the first project to address journalistic skills as an important professional competence of adult education staff.

Good practices need to be shared to improve adult education

The main objective for the LEK-AE project is to increase the professionalization and quality, with special focus on information work of adult education staff. In seminars, webinars and simulation games that are developed and designed in the project, adult education staff will learn more about public relations and journalistic writing. Furthermore, they will acquire skills to give this knowledge further to their colleagues and peers in adult education.

EAEA is one of the ten partners and its role is to disseminate the project results to a wide European audience via its networks. Additionally, EAEA will organise a seminar to train adult education staff in journalism by using the curriculum developed in the project. At the end of the project, EAEA will also organise a multiplier event in Brussels where the project results will be presented.

The Commission's consultation will stay open until 16 July and can be accessed here.
