Overview of the visit
LCTS Ltd & MLI were accredited to conduct a 5 year project with the following objectives:
- Objective 1 : To promote COLLABORATION amongst adult educators from the Mediterranean and the Nordic Regions of the EU and to develop new professional networks amongst adult educators across Europe.
- Objective 2 : To move away from chalk and talk (lecturer-centred approach) towards LEARNER-CENTRED ANDRAGOGICAL APPROACHES: To recognise the weakness of current lecturing techniques and to strengthen them.
- Objective 3 : To develop more INCLUSIVE ANDRAGOGICAL TECHNIQUES to address the needs of diverse adult learners with different social and ethnic backgrounds.
- Objective 4 : To encourage the development of EFFECTIVE INNOVATIVE ANDROGOGICAL STRATEGIES aimed at improving the quality of adult education using digital tool and creative modes of teaching and lecturing
Objective 1 was implemented through a visit to University of Applied Sciences Amsterdam https://www.amsterdamuas.com/ whereby we were welcomed by Dr Sander Schreovers and we have attended also some of his lectures. His creative methodology of teaching was astonishing and shows the commitment towards passing learning to both adults and young people. It is appealing to all generations.
Also, one of the participants visited the centre for Nutritional Studies where by the have huge labs for learning in practice.
Visit at the University of Applied Sciences Amsterdam was held between 16th May to 20th May 2022
