EPALE - Plataforma eletrónica para a educação de adultos na Europa


Focos temáticos 2021 da EPALE. Vamos começar!

por Cristina PEREIRA

EPALE 2021 Thematic Focuses. Let's start!

Bem-vindo(a) à primeira discussão online de 2021!

Parece que temos pela frente um ano muito interessante para a educação de adultos. Aprendemos muito com a crise da COVID-19. Fomos forçados a reinventar os nossos velhos hábitos. Percebemos que havia muitas coisas interessantes à nossa espera, mas também que certas desigualdades se agravaram em resultado da crise. Com tudo isso em mente, pretendemos concentrar-nos em três temas principais. Vamos focar-nos em todos eles ao longo do ano, monitorizando como se desenvolvem nos próximos meses e explorando cada um deles ao nosso ritmo.

Convidamo-lo(a) a enriquecer o que definimos para que este seja um ano intenso, contando com os seus contributos e experiência!

Vamos começar participando nesta discussão online. A discussão terá lugar a 9 de março de 2021, terça-feira, entre as 10:00 e as 16:00 CET (9:00 / 15:00 Lisboa).

A discussão escrita será precedida por uma transmissão ao vivo com uma introdução aos focos temáticos de 2021 e será apresentada por Gina Ebner e Aleksandra Kozyra, da Associação Europeia para a Educação de Adultos (EAEA), em representação do Conselho Editorial da EPALE.

Não perca a oportunidade de dar a sua opinião sobre o que gostaria que fosse discutido durante o ano!

Os comentários serão abertos com algumas semanas de antecedência para permitir que possa partilhar as suas ideias e sugestões.

It is time also for a greater focus on the quality of information. I suggest also to read and share this article COVID-19 VACCINES MISTRUST COMPOUNDED BY FAKE-NEWS, INEQUALITIES AND BIASES.

Thank you very much for an interesting conversation. Much of what you have discussed today can be attributed to things that are happening and developing here in Iceland today. It is certain that this discussion here today will be useful in various places in Iceland. Everything that has to do with the labor market is evolving very fast and it becomes more and more important for each generation to maintain their skills, develop them even further and evolving new skills as well. It is importand to empower adults, also older adults, to work further on there life and work skills. You might say the same about life skills as they say about there body and muscles at the gym - "if you don´t use it, you loose it!"

I do agree with discussion participants that digital inclusion in adult education particularly for senior learners is essential as now-a-days we can observe great phenomenon of seniors joining adult education. The generation change happened and now even generation X (born around 1960-ties) is entering senior age if we reckon seniors as aged 55 plus. This generation is definitely having digital competences and they are willing to learn on-line. This is shift we now may notice in Latvia, particularly, working with Senior University students. I do hope EU adult education policy and agenda will more and more focus on different generations!

Many thanks for this vibrant discussion!
You have provided much food for thought and we will have plenty of interesting aspects to focus on this year.
The live discussion ends here, with a lot to chew on... but it doesn't really end here.

You're welcome to go on commenting and posting your suggestions and opinions... we'll take them into great consideration for developing future content. As already mentioned during the livestream, it's a co-creation process with the EPALE community.

...and, about that... also the video introduction by Gina and Aleksandra of the EAEA will remain available on this page.

See you at the next discussion!

At EPALE Germany we have decided to take a closer look at a sub-set of the topics that will be the focus of EPALE throughout 2021. We will shift our themes on a quarterly basis and our topics include:

- health education
- prevention of racism and discrimination
- basic skills (covers all life skills topics)
- culture and creativity 

These can all be linked to the aspects EPALE as a whole will be working on. For instance, how can health education be included in work-based learning? What are ways to raise awareness about racism and discrimination in the online world? How can we make culture and creativity more accessible for all? 

More information is available (in German) in this article:

And of course the German NSS would love to hear about your projects and initiatives to include them in our thematic weeks and ultimately in our thematic resource kits.

I really like this theme. Life is not just about work! Human development is also very important. Culture.

It would also be interesting to make a comparison about the level of the digital alphabetization in different countries of the two hemispheres

I have been following the discussion throughout the day and I am happy with the topics EPALE has chosen this year - digital skills (skills relevant to the labor market in general), re-training opportunities, motivation of learners and the ability to return to the labor market are important - unfortunately, in some cases, these topics have been relevant only in the framework of strategic planning, thinking about future needs and future agenda, but the current situation has made them the top issue of the day. The current situation calls for a reassessment of resources and opportunities, finally showing how much of what we have planned, we can really put into practice today - it is easy to strategically prioritize digital skills, but putting them into practice in different groups can be challenging - previous comments already listed both technical support (computer availability, quality of internet connection), basic skills and people 's own motivation to adapt and learn new skills in a short period of time.

All skills that are useful in your life can be considered a life skill. There are some life skills that almost every employer looks for when searching for new employees. Organisations look for candidates who are well - equipped for common challenges that arise at work, and life skills help them in that matter. People with strong life skills are more likely to be pro-change, and they are more self-aware. That is why I think the theme "Life and work skills" create a good opportunity to learn good parctices from all around Europe.
