Dear EPALE colleagues,

In November EPALE’s thematic focus continued to be on adult learning at the workplace. During this time, EPALE’s national teams and the community published a number of inspiring case studies, articles, reports and other resources on the topic. Visit our thematic page Workplace learning to find them (content varies based on your language preference). Don’t forget to visit EPALE regularly for new content!

Between 11-13 November, EPALE organised an online event for collecting successful projects on workplace learning. We had various contributions from a wide range of adult learning professionals from 20 European countries. We thank everyone for sharing their invaluable contributions with the EPALE community!

Check out this article containing a summary by the event moderator Andrew McCoshan.
