From teachers to policy makers – EPALE has something for anyone working in the adult learning sector. Have a look at some of the benefits of joining the community and how you can get involved:
How to take part in discussions
EPALE offers you the unique opportunity to share your views and exchange ideas with other adult learning professionals on different topics. Discussions are open for anyone to join – simply log into your account. You can find the top discussions on the home page on the right-hand side.
To start your own discussion click ‘Themes’ in the main menu, and choose the theme that’s most relevant to your topic (e.g. E-learning). Then on your right click ‘Create content’ -> ‘Discussion’.
Find adult education project partners and discuss ideas
With the EPALE Partner Search tool you can look for partners in your field, find new projects, or start your own. If you’re looking for a private area where you can discuss ideas with your project partners, you can also create a collaborative space. Collaborative spaces are private areas where you and your partners can discuss different topics, exchange files, share news and events.
Join an adult education community of practice
Adult learning is a broad sector. If you have specific interests, for example lifelong learning in prisons or family learning, then we recommend joining a community of practice. Communities of practice are open areas, created by EPALE users, where like-minded individuals can get together and discuss specific topics, exchange files and share ideas and information. Take a look at EPALE’s full list of communities of practice and if you can’t find one that you’re looking for – create one yourself!
On EPALE you can get in direct dialogue with the publisher of the blog post or news article you’re reading. Do you agree with them? Or perhaps you have a different opinion? Simply leave a comment to let the author know what you think.
