Learners with Disabilities

As part of EPALE’s June focus on persons with disabilities, we would like to hear your views on how we can improve adult learning for people with disabilities.

The discussion is open to everyone and will take place on this page on 8 June 2017 at 2:00pm CEST. It will be moderated by EPALE’s Thematic Coordinator for Learner Support, Gina Ebner.

Don’t miss the opportunity to share with the EPALE community your experience, views and questions on the topic. We would love to hear your opinions on:

  • strategies for adult education for people with disabilities in your country
  • what a good strategy should contain
  • good practice examples from your country or organisation.

Excellent point! We definitely need to take the intergenerational and family aspects into consideration

Dear all,

thank you so much for all your contributions – this has been very inspiring. What we would like to suggest to you: we’ll leave the comments open so that you and your colleagues can still add additional comments. We will then write a short blog post about the main outcomes of the discussion and will post it as soon as possible (Monday?!). You will then still have the opportunity to add to the summary (and invite colleagues to contribute, too)!

It’s been great – thank you so much!

I think we can all agree that this afternoon’s discussion has covered a lot of interesting information. As the time for our discussion is coming to an end, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Thematic Coordinator Gina Ebner for her time and input. We will however be leaving comments open so please feel free to continue the discussion.

It seems to me that many of the points we're making are true for adult education in general and for adult education for people with disabilities in particular:

- Learner-centred approaches

- Flexible and appropriate methods 

- Adequate funding

- Excellent teacher / trainer training 

- Flexible learning pathways so that people can move between sectors

What would you add?

I know learner centred is up there but I would want to emphasise that they are very much strength's based

Hi Gina,

I wonder if carreer guidance / coaching is incorporated in existing adult education systems for people with dissabilities and if not this is what I would add.

Many thanks
