19 November: Outreach and Access in Times of Crisis and Beyond

The first day of the conference will focus on the immediate response to the pandemic and the support adult education providers have provided to their most vulnerable learners.

Looking at “Outreach and Access in Times of Crisis and Beyond,” you will hear from Professor Ellen Boeren, a researcher in adult learning participation from the University of Glasgow, UK, and from several adult learning professionals who will share their hands-on experience in outreach and access during a series of interactive workshops.

The participants will be able to discuss digital exclusion, online and hybrid learning festivals, support for self-isolating learners, and more.

20 November: Upskilling Pathways as an opportunity to improve outreach and access. From EU policies to learners.

The second day of the conference will look at the European Commission’s Upskilling Pathways as an opportunity to improve outreach and access, and discuss how and why to engage to make this initiative a reality.

This conference day is also the final conference of the Erasmus+ project Upskilling Pathways in AE-PRO. From the Nordic region Finland, Iceland and Sweden have been part of this project. You will have a chance to discuss the challenges with other adult educators, learn about different advocacy tools and contribute to the UP-AEPRO policy recommendations.

You can register for both or only one of the conference days. More information, full programme and registration here
