Partners will support of extending and developing the competences of educators and other personnel who support adult learners. Supporting educators in their learning process and by exchanding and providing new teaching materials this project partners also will support adults learners as final beneficiaries what is priority for Erasmus+ Programme.
This strategic partnership project aim is to share good practice examples in interactive and creative learning of adults. Partners will develop "Creativity training methodology" E-Book - a sustainable training tool for adult trainers which will be one of tangible results of this project.
The main project approach is targeted through non-formal learning methods which aim at enhancing the creativity skills and competences of adult educators and final beneficiaries - adult learners - who are the main target groups in this project.
The objectives of the project are:
*to share good practices among project partners
*to increase professional development of adult educators,
*to collect and develop methods for the project E-Book,
*to develop and reinforce EU networks for adult teaching and learning,
*to enrich the network of adult education providers in partners' countries and Europe.
Project activities will include:
• organisation of three transnational meetings and regular local activities
• preparation and implementation of two short-term joint staff training events;
• collection of teaching materials in "Creativity training methodology";
• monitoring and evaluation process;
• dissemination of project results. Impact on the participants will be seen on improvement of knowledge of educators about creativity training methods.
Partners will have opportunity to learn about new methodology which they can later use with adult learners. Partners will increase EU project management competencies. They will tighten their cooperation, exchange of good practices and experiences. The project will contribute to increasing adult learners creativity competencies. After participating in the local trainings, they will have possibility to explore and find their hidden talents. Learners with fewer opportunities, particularly unemployed, national minorities, migrants will be actively involved to the project activities, bringing their experience and competencies into the project. Learning and training activities will give the added value for them and for achievement of the project objectives. Partners plan that more then 100 participants will be involved in this project and 50 of them with fewer opportunities.
The potential longer term benefits of this project will be in its sustainability. Project materials will be available in digital form for use to wider audience. Partners will continuously organise workshops and trainings after the project life cycle in their own organisations and also in other adult education organisations, in non-formal and informal ways. Examples of good practices will be shared among different target groups. Partners plan to develop a new Erasmus+ and other projects in the future, and continue working on creativity in adult education and to support social and educational values of non-formal education.
