Research and evaluation best practices

Although creativity and innovation are considered one of the key driving forces in modern economies, to date there have been few approaches concerning creativity and innovation management. There are also very few educational approaches applied at the interface of continuing education, institutes of higher education and business that systematically promote these skills and competencies.

The Ministry of Education and Vocational Training announces annually since 1991 the Miguel Hernández Awards. This award is aimed at the recognition and dissemination of the work carried out by public institutions, non-profit private entities and public adult education centers that are distinguished by developing an innovative and quality educational work.

In the same way, actions that can contribute to the participation and permanence in permanent formation and lifelong learning in adults are recognized.

NHS England has launched its Healthy New Towns Programme guidance – a leaflet that discusses the ten principles to building healthy new places, their benefits and provides a range of case studies as evidence. The housing development sites that are working with the Programme and the NHS aim to share best practice, their own case studies and supply guidance so that the country can take a unified and high quality approach to new developments on land previously used by the government.

How can educators best nurture balanced global citizenship education?

The importance of lifelong learning and the development of many skills we need for the future are some of the more important issues that professionals and career practitioners are dealing with in many countries. The idea and initiative to organize the Cross-Border seminar this year also brings with it significant benefits to the participants. For almost 15 years, the practice of maintaining this kind of cooperation with countries active in the field of Career Guidance and Counselling (CgaC) has proven useful and important in improving the competencies of career practitioners. The theme of this year's Cross Border Seminar held in Bled, Slovenia was "Skills for the future".

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.

If you are interested in knowing more about adults attending MOOCs, you will discover that there is still little research on this specific group, representing a minority of the users. New insights are now available which have emerged from a study I published in a book edited by Springer that includes researches presented at the 7th International Workshop on Learning Technology for Education Challenges, (LTEC 2018), titled: What Learning Professionals Should Know.

EUCEN (European University Continuing Education Network) celebrará el próximo otoño, del 14 al 15 de noviembre de 2019, el seminario “Aprendiendo para el emprendimiento: una perspectiva ciudadana global” en Barcelona.

Global issues such as climate change and natural resource consumption levels, urgently require a change in our lifestyles and a transformation in our ways of thinking and acting. To achieve this change, we need new skills, new values and new behaviours that lead to more sustainable societies. But is it even possible to find a shared definition of circular economy (CE) education?

Stories can be the means by which people work out their thoughts and ideas: they can be an exploration, a search for meaning or an offering up to others. People's stories about their experiences provide useful insights into what is happening in their lives and communities. The Our Voices project seeks to find innovative ways of curating people’s stories so that the ideas, messages and knowledge within them can be better shared with the people, groups and organisations in a position to use them to create positive change in communities across Europe.

A large group of people are not sufficiently educated to get jobs or function properly as citizens, a fact which has been substantiated in one study after the other.

It is not that campaigns or educational opportunities have been lacking, but those kinds of opportunities cannot solve the problem alone because a good portion of the people in question cannot find the proper motivation they need to overcome the limitations they have due to their lack of education.

Higher education in a globalising world focuses on current policy discourse in higher education. It discusses globalisation, Lifelong Learning, the EU’s higher education discourse – this discourse’s regional ramifications – and alternative practices in higher education from both the minority and majority worlds with their different learning traditions and epistemologies. Mayo scours the wide range of alternative practices in higher education used around the world, many of which are at their embryonic stage.

The National Centre for Guidance in Education (NCGE)  and Euroguidance Ireland host regular study visits with the aim of supporting the sharing of best practice in guidance among practitioners and other relevant professionals.

Between the 19th and 21st February 2019,  NCGE / Euroguidance Ireland hosted a study visit in Dublin with representatives from Belgium (Flanders), Czech Republic, Luxembourg and Romania.

The survey commissioned by the Directorate for Research, Lifelong Learning and Employability analysed the progress and national user satisfaction amongst EPALE Platform registered users in Malta, as well as, analysed potential users’ interest in resources and content they would be mainly attracted to.
