Even though, life long learning (especially adult education) is not very popular in Lithuania, it's popularity is rising and the number of adults engaging in learning activities is growing every year. Adult education is a complicated process and is requiring high level of knowledge and experience from adult teachers. Increasing demands of adult teachers, fosters the problem, that young lecturers are not able to deliver high level of trainings, because of lack of experience and knowledge. Also, to reach bigger auditorium of learning adults, there is a need to search for new and innovative teaching methods, popularize e-learning culture and focus on different learning styles of adults (taking into account gender differences in learning processes). Our organization faces same problems mentioned above and has a goal to fight with them. The goals that organization has is: teach and develop young trainers, to ensure high quality of trainings they provide. Encourage new and innovative teaching methods, popularize e-learning activities and culture and take into account the differences of learners when creating teaching programs. This project would be the first step to reach these goals and solve those problems.
During the project, organization will delegate 7 of their lecturers to go to learning courses in other European countries. In 6 out of 7 visits, the participant would be younger and less experienced lecturers. The aim of the 3 of the courses (where 4 lecturers would participate) would be for the lecturers to learn, how to work with adults in teaching process, learn new methods of teaching and working with groups. Those lecturers already has 3 to 5 years of experience in training other people, but they have less experience working with adults specifically. Other course where 2 lecturers would be sent is directly aimed into learning on how to use and increase popularity of e-learnings. Last 1 course where more experienced lecturer would participate is related with gender differences theme and how to adopt teaching methods to auditoriums of different genders.
In total there would be 5 different courses, where 7 lecturers would be sent. The project would be administrated by the head of office Silvija. She has more than 7 years of experience administrating projects and projects funded by EU funds.
Results which are expected:
- 6 lecturers with less experience working with adult education will be trained. Their competences will increase and this will result in they being more attractive as lecturers, the hours they work on teaching adults will rise by about 20 percent.
- New teaching methods will be learned and introduced in trainings held in Lithuania. E-learning methods will be introduced and promoted.
- Network of international contacts will be established and later used to constantly exchange the experience of learing and teaching adults between countries. Lecturers from other European countries are coming to held trainings in Lithuania and Lithuanian trainers are going to visits in other European countries.
- When creating new teaching programs, the difference of genders in learning process will be kept in mind. This will result in equaling the number of men and woman who engage in adult learning.
In long-term perspective, project should encourage life long learning and adult education in Lithuania, develop e-learning culture and it's popularity between adults in Lithuania, also encourage equality between the amount of learning men and woman.
