Expected (learning) outcomes
Questions that arise and which we want to deal with during the conference concern the following issues:
• How, in the face of social and cultural changes of the present day, do women and men function in the family, on the labour market, in local communities, peer/friendly groups, and how can education help them understand and adapt to these changes as well as develop their ‘biography of choice’?
• How does adult education in its three types meet the needs and educational expectations of contemporary women and men who are affected by migration crisis, religious conflicts, social inequalities, radical movements, post-truth politics and fake news?
• In what spaces of women and men’s lives is the context of the above-mentioned social and cultural changes revealed, and how does gender differentiate the life strategies and educational choices of women and men as a response to the challenges of contemporary world?
• How (and if) (new) risks and challenges of current times affect gender social order, gender roles and norms and which are the implications of these potential changes for adult education practices and research?
• How does adult education in its three types meet the needs and educational expectations of contemporary women and men who are affected by migration crisis, religious, conflicts, Covid-19 pandemic crisis, social inequalities, radical movements, post-truth
politics and fake news?
