Developing Technology Enhanced Learning in Adult Education

This section of the project work will produce a report with recommendations for the applicability and transference of the outcomes of the project to Adult education and highlighting areas of difference. It will also include adapted versions of the key deliverables IF they are felt to be appropriate.

Technology Enhanced Learning and the creation and use of digital media has been slow to make an impact in adult education. In many countries there is very little in the way of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for adult education teachers in general compared with teachers in the school sector. This is in part due to the high proportion of Adult Education teachers who are part time or who are teaching Leisure / Liberal Arts /Hobby classes that do not lead to examinations. Adult education is notoriously underfunded in most countries which makes investment in CPD even less likely. However, it also means that training has high impact in Adult Education .
