IMPLEMENT - Implementing LLLUs through training and development
Start date: Jan 1, 2011,
From "rhetoric to practice" to "make LLL a reality". This aim remains a key priority on the European policy agenda while offering crucial challenges in professional practice for all educational institutions and stakeholders. But how can this aim be achieved? How can universities do justice to their responsibility and live up to their role as "important social actors contributing to the better integration of adult learners, in particular through the recognition of informal and non-formal learning"? How could universities be supported "to invest more in services for learners" and to "better use their partnerships and effectively communicate the results of their cooperative activities"? How can they become truly LLL universities?The results of the BeFlex Plus project make clear recommendations in response to these questions and the excellent training materials also offer a valuable learning resource for university staff and linked target groups to reflect on their institutional situation, to develop action plans, and to IMPLEMENT changes.Thus the aim of the IMPLEMENT project is to support institutions to become real LLL-Universities. The objectives are to further disseminate and actively exploit the highly praised results of the BeFlex Plus project and particularly the training materials as flexible learning tools to achieve that. The IMPLEMENT approach uses the idea that the potential for transfer and implementation is at its peak when key partners are supported to act as multipliers and to adapt and work with the materials according to their own needs and the specifics of their home university and national context.Value will be added to the existing training materials by adapting them to national needs, using them in real training at institutional, national and transnational events, and by developing and delivering an online version to provide a sustainable and dynamic solution for the longer term exploitation of the learning resources and best practice examples.
