Posté par Anne Hjelm Larsen

The report presents practice- and research-based knowledge on adult education.

Some of the knowledge presented is already well-known, while some is more recent. Overall, it gives some pedagogical framework for how to organize good training courses in a vocational adult education. The purpose of the report is to be a source of inspiration. It is intended to give ideas on how to make good education even better. It should introduce new ways of thinking about standard practice. It is our hope that the inspiration can contribute to the development of new practices in vocational adult education.

Vocational adult education is carried out under certain conditions. Many participants may, for instance, not have chosen the education themselves, but need the qualifications that the course will give them. Typically, the courses are short and designed with a clear vocational purpose. Such conditions set a framework for how the education can be completed. This means that the pedagogical principles are applied in a special way in relation to the specific context. These principles need to be translated to the actual teaching. It is a challenge for good teachers to ensure a good translation of pedagogical principles into the practical circumstances of vocational adult education.
