We are proud and happy to announce the ICAE Virtual seminar 2019 – on the “Role and Impact of Adult Education” from a global perspective!
The International Council for Adult Education (ICAE) continues to inspire dialog, exchange of ideas and critical reflection on highly relevant topics in adult education. Through this virtual seminar ICAE, in cooperation with DVV International, therefore wants to promote a debate and dialogue on selected articles from DVV International’s journal Adult Education and Development. This offers the chance to discuss the topics raised in the print issue in a virtual seminar and to go deeper and broaden the analysis. It creates a virtual space as an opportunity to share experiences from different regions and contexts, and to inspire new initiatives.
Experiences and good practices from around the globe
In the latest issue of Adult Education and Development (AED), 20 authors from all over the world discuss the many facets of “role and impact of adult education”. They take a closer look at its impact on the world and on our lives, as well as share thoughts on what role adult education plays in development work and in the current global debate on the wider benefits of learning.
What role does adult education play in society and in the lives of individuals? What contribution can it make to meeting challenges such as poverty, globalisation or digitisation? How can adult educators ensure that their programmes and offers achieve the desired impact? And how can we measure impact? These are some of the questions raised in this year’s issue of AED.
The seminar is free of charge, open to anyone and will start on 25thof February.
The following articles of issue 85 of Adult Education and Development will be this years´ starting point of the seminar:
- Henrique Lopesillustrates how adult education as “healthcare literacy” can save our lives.
