Dear EPALE colleagues,
Our thematic focus for January and February is on digital adult learning. During this time, EPALE’s national teams and the community will publish inspiring case studies, articles, reports and other resources on the topic.
Have you come across or designed an innovative methodology for teaching adults through IT? Perhaps you have been involved in or heard of a successful project that aimed to use digital tools in adult learning? Share your stories, tips, case studies and good practice examples between 25-28 February and help to inspire adult learning professionals across Europe.
All the stories shared here will be included in our monthly newsletter!
