Keeping an ageing mind sharp and young

Published on 18.02.2020 at 20:13

Keep an ageing mind sharp is a project that seeks to increase the supply of high-quality teaching and learning programmes, by sharing best practices on effective approaches used by adult educators in Norway, Latvia and Lithuania to better address the factors hindering older learners' skills development through blended learning as a big part of them have problems with effective use of digital technologies.

 

When we met again with our partners in Livani last week, we were introduced to the conditions and/or legislations that influence adult educators’ working environment in Latvia, and observed how adult learners take a part in educational activities within their local realities and context. Further, we had the opportunity to visit and experience the Latgalian cuisine, culture, and beautiful landscape.

 

To provide an overview of ageism across the educational sector and business environment in Livani district and Latgale county, we visited Livani Business Support Centre and Livani district council to learn how they are keeping adult learners engaged and encouraged to continually hone their skills through practice in accordance with the required skills, working abilities, and professional possibilities.

 

To frame the problem about the situation of ageism in the labour market, we visited former adult learners at their working places to become familiar with their expertises based on the closed knowledge gaps. Ageism was thus presented in the context of older and young learners as a mixed group to formulate the elements that should be in integrated training suitable for both younger and older learners.
