In 2019 the International Council for Adult Education (ICAE) and DVV International continue to build global dialogue, support an exchange of ideas and critical reflection on highly relevant topics in adult education and development. This includes a virtual seminar discussing the “Role and Impact of Adult Education”, following the latest edition of DVV International´s journal Adult Education and Development (AED) with the same topic.
To complement this, we are organizing a webinar. Henrique Lopes, professor and researcher of Public Health at the Portuguese Catholic University and Leona M. English, professor of adult education at St. Francis Xavier University, Canada and author of the Book “Adult Education and Health”, have agreed to participate.
During the webinar, Henrique Lopes will present his article on “How adult education can save your life”(available online at the journal´s website in English, French, Spanish), written for this years´ AED edition. He will discuss together with Leona M. English the impact that adult education can have on our health. How is it possible to place preventive healthcare education in the same category as literacy and numeracy, and to re-evaluate the importance of lifelong learning for our survival?
You can follow the presentation and discussion on the 7thof March, 13:00 (WET/GMT-1). The webinar runs on the zoom.us, which you can access through a normal web browser, or through the zoom.us app. Technical support is available if you need it. Register for the webinar here.
