EPALE

Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe

 
 

Quality

Every year EPALE disseminates a survey where we ask the community what they think about our features, how they use the platform and how we can improve. Your valuable feedback will help us make EPALE even more useful to the adult learning community across Europe.

This news article describes a number of developments and current topics of conversation within High Education and universities. It covers the trend in ‘unconditional conditional’ offers, the return of the post-Study work visa, the Universities and Science Minister’s commitment to continued participation in Erasmus+ projects and the long-running argument over the cost of university fees.

The Ironmongers’ Company is providing grants to organisation and projects that aim to help disadvantaged children and young people under the age of 25 to reach their potential. Projects that focus efforts on delivering clearly defined educational benefits to specific groups are of particular interest. Grants range between a few hundred pounds and £10,000.

The Economic and Social Research Institute(ESRI) conducted an independent evaluation of the Youthreach programme in late 2018 which has been published by SOLAS, the Further Education and Training Authority.

This blog reports on the lauch of the evaluation on Monday 17th June, and will give summary of the ERSI evaluation, as published by SOLAS, along with a summary of SOLAS' report and recommendations in response to the evaluation.

Supervision is a space for reflection – we learn looking back at our experience. It helps us understand our tasks, work ethics, challenges, and solutions. It may be a space where we can ask and give emotional support. But sometimes it is not a part of our setting or the kind of supervision we have is not sufficient.

Shortly after I started my graduate studies I became interested in counseling and started my counseling training parallel with my initial education. I was surprised to find out that supervision was sometimes mentioned during my formal education while in the counseling practice it was explained and part of the process since day one. I knew that I will be talking about my practice - analyzing my skills and knowledge with someone and I was looking forward to it.

After a boom of computer-supported learning methods, especially in in-company training, in the recent couple of years the notion of “blended learning” has become more popular. In a current Erasmus+ project called “Quality Blended Learning”, six educational organisations from Slovenia, Greece, Italy, Ireland, Spain and Germany are trying to explore the notion of blended learning for themselves and to develop supportive materials for teachers and trainers. The focus of the project is on “how to do the blending well”, or in other words: how can blending be done in a high-quality way.

Certification of education and training is not a new concept in Denmark or other countries, as several forms of certification and accreditation already exist, but certifying vocational courses offered via e-learning is a new development. In this context, e-learning is treated as an overarching term which encompasses blended learning as well as purely web-based learning (distance learning). The pilot certification scheme covers descriptions of the objectives, content and organisation of e-learning courses, taking into account the participants’ prior learning.

Due to the rising cost of textbooks and reduced university library budgets, four project teams from UK universities partnered to create the Institution as e-textbook publisher project, resulting in the production of two e-textbooks per institution and a helpful toolkit made in collaboration with JISC, that can be used by other institutions hoping to create their own e-textbooks.
