Workshop on digitalisation

Time: 11 December, 9.00-16.30
Location: G Livelab, Yrjönkatu 3, 00120 Helsinki, Finland

The workshop is built around the following questions:

  1. What kind of challenges and problems digitalisation causes for adults, communities and society?
  2. What is change-oriented adult education?
  3. What examples there are of change-oriented adult education?
  4. How can we use change-oriented adult education as a tool to solve these challenges?

The workshop will use interactive methods and digital tools to reflect upon how adult education can help to manage the challenges of digitalisation, and discuss how these practices can be transferred to participants’ organisations and countries.  At the end of the day, the participants will have an understanding, what is change-oriented adult education and how to use a change-oriented approach in teaching and learning provision, and how it could be taken into account at the policy level.

We Europeans share a great, common task – our goal is to make Europe a socially, economically and environmentally sustainable, civilised society. Can we, as citizens and nations, still find the right track?
