Basically, they may have a general positive attitude toward technology, they may be able to use it in their personal lives, but they still not consider themselves qualified nor comfortable enough to teach with it

New research into planning for skills devolution in England suggests that more needs to be done to ensure that the breadth and diversity of adult education is not lost under the new funding arrangements. With input from stakeholders, we are developing a model to support adult education providers and others to hold decision-makers in devolved authorities to account.

Following the announcement of the lockdown in Lithuania, international project activities (such as the Erasmus + project - “Cultural Heritage for the Future: Discover, Share and Learn”) were cancelled including the final meeting of the partners, international trainings, and an international conference. The team of Vilnius County Adomas Mickevičius Public Library had to evaluate and decide which events could be moved and organised online, and which had to be postponed until further notice. We stayed in contact with library partners abroad remotely.

How can this intrinsic contradiction be solved?
