EPALE - Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe

Life has a tendency to emerge all around, even where we least expect it, or to reveal opportunities for curiosity we didn’t even know were there. You can always find – in the affection between two individuals, between generations, between peoples – an evergreen sense of co-existence, the moment we let go of formalities, of smugness, of our imagined selves. The moment we surrender ourselves to something new, something rediscovered, something liberating and something challenging.

She has also been working  for 12 years in Marketing & Communications in both Canada and Europe focusing on the development of soft skills. COVID-19 forced her to rethink and develop more distance learning activities and to repackage the learning offer in order to help learners to find the training programs that suited them best at that particular time.

The current heated debate on the opportunities to be gained from, and the usefulness of, adopting contact tracing and mobile tracking technologies to monitor and contain the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic across the world has recently brought to light a topic that, until a few months ago, was considered to be exclusively the stuff of experts. This is digital spatial literacy, the ability to use the properties of digital space to communicate, reason, and solve problems.

As for my experience, all the learning at this time is done via digital environments. The importance of digital competencies and skills is more important than ever. One, as an adult learning provider, can do all the thinkable and unthinkable preparations for a course, but surprises still emerge.  It is impossible to be responsible for the digital competencies of the participators nor the teachers.
