We further aim to empower individuals, groups and organisations who would not normally engage in social innovation activities to participate in Circular Economy initiatives by giving them practical and pragmatic training materials and instructions on Circular Collaboration Management.  Through our work, we strive to increase the implementation of Circular Economy practices in SMEs in our communities and to link already existent Circular Economy projects and their stakeholders, locally, nationally and at a European level.

Lærere og kursister blev kastet ud i en øjeblikkelig omstilling til fjernundervisning med nedlukningen af uddannelsesinstitutionerne som følge af coronavirus. Notatet giver indblik i, hvordan det er gået med fjernundervisningen på VEU-området, og hvad vi kan lære af erfaringerne – både ift. et større brug af digitale redskaber i den almindelige undervisning og ved mulige nedlukninger i fremtiden.

Undersøgelsen er gennemført i et samarbejde mellem eVidenCenter – Det Nationale Videncenter for e-læring – og Tænketanken DEA.

Learning and Work Institute a publicat doua ghiduri pe tema „Better Basic Skills: Better Business”.

Aproximativ 5 milioane de adulți cu abilități de bază scăzute lucrează. Abordarea nevoilor de competențe de bază ale persoanelor care lucrează poate contribui la îmbunătățirea nivelurilor generale de competențe din Anglia. Cu toate acestea, mulți angajatori nu au identificat necesitatea formării competențelor de bază. Este posibil ca angajații să nu recunoască importanța propriilor competențe de alfabetizare și calcul, care stau la baza altor competențe/ abilități legate de muncă.

What is a House of Knowledge (Casa do Conhecimento)? It's a space designed to be a flexible and interactive learning place, physically close to the local population and freely accessible to all sectors of society. A place where educational, cultural or knowledge dissemination activities would be developed and adapted to the needs of the region and, above all, respecting the capabilities and the digital skills of its population.

Adult Education at Downtown Community Court: Ideas for program planners Introduction In the piece, “Reframing the Conversation: Respecting Basic Adult Education” author Lynn Horvat (2014) draws attention to the complexity of Adult Education and how it has been misunderstood. In particular, Horvat suggests that adult education is not simply a “one size fits all model” (2014, page 1) and should not be evaluated as if it is. Rather, adult education is a multifaceted system that needs to be thoughtfully and purposefully implemented.

The lyceum and chautauqua movements reveal how adults in the United States have been interested in continuing their education since 1826. These two general educational movements provided continuing education for adults in all walks of life. Developing an awareness of past and present paradigms in adult education can provide a road map for piano teachers to better relate to adult students who continuously desire the following benefits: accessibility to education, fulfilling musical experiences and improved mental and psychological health.

The lack of visibility of women in history has long been noted, and notably, the field of adult education remains particularly understudied from a  gender perspective However, in recent years, a  number of researchers studying various kinds of adult or popular education have become increasingly interested in women as audiences or initiators of adult classes or the professionalisation of women. In this article we will argue that “discovering” does not necessarily mean revealing unknown personalities. Various meanings of the word “pioneering” will also be discussed.

In this paper we analyse the impact of adult education and training on labour market outcomes. Using the New Zealand Household Labour Force Survey linked to administrative education and earnings data, we estimate that on average, studying for a tertiary qualification increases the likelihood of employment in the post-study period by 1-3 percentage points and raises annual earnings by about 5% for men and 12% for women. In general, women who study for a tertiary qualification realise positive and significant gains but the same is not necessarily true for men.

Meeting the needs of adults who enroll community college with weak academic, economic, and family resources is one of the most prominent problems in higher education today. Research on the employment outcomes of a college education in the United States has primarily focused on four-year degrees, yet over 40% of college students attend a community college.

UNESCO document states that education has a crucial role to play in climate change, building capacities and attitudes for climate change mitigation as well as stimulating and reinforcing understanding and attentiveness of climate change. A particular attention should be paid to adult education. People are living longer in an increasingly global world, jobs are evolving and the impact of climate change is growing.
