Methodology

Methodology

The focus of ADULTDIGITALU is on the thorough preparation of adult educators, to be in position to infuse digital elements in their subject areas, to build the skills and competences of adult learners with special attention given to low skilled adults. To achieve this objective, a need analysis will first be contacted, to reveal the educational gaps that need to be met.

The goal of this analysis will be twofold; the deep understanding of the needs and barriers faced by the adult learners when it comes to acquisition of digital skills will be the first gain. At the same time, the learning and teaching methods of adult learners will come to knowledge, in order to design learning pathways tailor made to their needs and customize the training of adult educators and Master trainers accordingly.

In order to further enhance the prior knowledge in the field of upgrading the digital skills of adult learners, we chose to incorporate practices and methods that have already been developed and used in real time educational environments. Therefore, in two work packages (1 & 3) we planned study visits, to acquire and be exemplified by reputable colleagues in other European countries.
