EPALE podcast: Adult literacy skills

In light of EPALE’s September focus on literacy our Thematic Coordinators, Andrew McCoshan, Gina Ebner, Markus Palmen and Simon Broek, got together to discuss the following questions:

  • What do we actually mean when we talk about 'adult literacy'? How does literacy relate to other basic skills?
  • What is the place of literacy in the Upskilling Pathways initiative?
  • What needs to be improved in literacy teaching and learning in this context?

Don't forget to join our written discussion on what literacy skills adults need and what the success factors are for an effective national policy in this field. The discussion will be in English and will take place on this page between 4–7 September 2017. It will be moderated by EPALE’s Thematic Coordinator for Life Skills, David Mallows, in collaboration with our partners from the European Basic Skills Network (EBSN).
