Dear EPALE colleagues,
Our thematic focus for November was on the role of adult education in career development. During this time, EPALE’s national teams and the community published a number of inspiring case studies, articles, reports and other resources.
On 22 November, EPALE invited the community to share their views on the role of adult learning in career development. The lively discussion was moderated by EPALE Thematic Coordinator David Mallows. We received over 130 comments from EPALE members from all around Europe!
If you missed the discussion, don’t worry – you can check out David Mallows’s reflections on it (EN).
EPALE’s Thematic Coordinators David Mallows, Gina Ebner, and Simon Broek, got together to discuss how they see the relationship between adult learning and career development, and what needs to happen to create a learning culture within society and within companies.
EPALE Thematic Coordinator Andrew McCoshan looked at why adult learning needs to learn from the online taxi and pizza delivery companies that are revolutionising the way we work.
