Transnational learning activity

The UP-AEPRO learning activity took place in Brussels (Belgium), in September 2019. AE organisations staff and participants in the online course got together with the project consortium for 5 days to strengthen the understanding across countries, cultures, organisations, and practices on the implementation of the Upskilling Pathways initiative.

The learning activity took the UP-AEPRO online course in the direction of blended learning which is quite unusual for a pan-European online course.

It greatly contributed to the next steps of the project and increased the grass-roots ownership of the Upskilling Pathways initiative.

The activity had four main objectives:

  • Meet other learners as well as the project partners and share the developments on the Upskilling Pathway initiative
  • Carry out an in-depth qualitative evaluation of and propose improvements for the 4 modules
  • Get acquainted with the technical tools used by the project and be briefed on the UPAEPRO peer learning sessions’ plan
  • Deepen some of the UP initiative aspects through study visits and meetings (in combination with the EAEA younger staff training)

The methodology used was a combination of presentations, practical exercises, group discussions, and study visits.
