Reaching the Stars
The aims of the project are to develop a pedagogical offline and digital online pedagogical material which can be used with adult learners; and to expand and develop the skills of counsellors (as tutor / teachers / trainers / educators / social work / technicians / psychologists, among others, depending on the context) who support these adult learners; and so to break new ground of lifelong guidance and counselling.
The transnational environment will give to the participators a chance for better understanding of the similarities and differences between various areas of the European Union. This will encourage adult learners to look for possibilities offered to them around Europe. At the same time, it will improve the professional skills of the staff of every partner, and thus build organisational capacity to operate on a wider European level. Choosing the adult learners to LTTA the project partners will prefer participants with fewer opportunities will help to built inclusion in the field of adult education.
THE PLANNED ACTIVITIES IN THE PROJECT REACHING THE STARS:
4 Transnational Project Meetings (one in each partner), along with regular virtual meetings.
Transnational short-term joint staff and adult learners training event.
Multiplier Events to share the outcomes of the Strategic Partnership with at least 160 participants who are related and/or interested in our project.
Offline material for guidance and counselling.
Offline material for adult learners.
Digital online material for guidance and counselling.
In this project, we will study / present / test different practices to promote adult learners´ motivation, self-efficacy, self-esteem, and future-orientation, and create pedagogical material (Project Result 2) to enable the adult learners to see the full potential within themselves.
The activities will include desk search, two surveys, focus group interviews, piloting and testing.
Transnational handbook of best practices for guidance and guidance in adult learning:
Review survey results and focus groups.
A list of examples of best practices.
The handbook can be used as a pedagogical tool to help adult learners set and crystallize both medium- and long-term goals.
This tool will be available on each partner’s websites.
Pedagogical card game for adult listeners
Offline materials that will help adult learners visualize their competences and qualities and thus broaden their horizons for the future. Both the socio-cultural context and individual competences and characteristics influence the adult learner’s ability to shape a vision of the future.
The role of this game-like guidance tool is to scale up these visions, even in adult education, and to help adult learners see their full potential.
A digital online tool to promote motivation, self-reflection, self-efficacy, self-esteem and future orientation. Questions about the online tool will encourage adult learners to self-reflect and make it easier to share their thoughts with teachers. Therefore, the online tool will be suitable for use in counselling and counselling meetings and for self-assessment by adult listeners.
Online materials will be freely available on each partner’s websites for at least 5 years.
