Round Table “Making the Case of European Civic Education”, 4 December (9:00-12:00)
In this European Year of Citizens 2013, EUCIS-LLL and the European Civic Forum organise a roundtable on “Making the case for European Civic Education”. Are teachers, educators and civil society organisations equipped to “teach European citizenship” and build active, informed and responsible citizenry in the context of rapidly changing social, political and economic environments? What is the role of non-formal education providers and EU organisations? Should we have a common module on EU citizenship in our schools? Join us for this fascinating debate and register here.
International Seminar “Measuring Progress in Lifelong Learning”, 5 December (12:00-15:00)
EUCIS-LLL will hold an international seminar on “Measuring progress in Lifelong Learning”. Progress is defined as development towards an improved or more advanced condition and as such, is highly subjective and subjected to various political interpretations and measurement methods. PISA, PIAAC, international indicators have more and more impact. What do they exactly measure? Do evaluations used in our educational systems reflect the shift to learning outcomes and to a learner-centered approach? This seminar is about rethinking progress measurement in lifelong learning in a partnership approach. Take part and sign up for the event.
EUCIS-LLL members are also organising several events during the LLL Week in order to raise awareness on Lifelong Learning in Europe with a particular focus on the upcoming European elections in 2014. OECD's survey on Adult Learning (PIAAC), validation of Non-Formal learning, entrepreneurship education, learning mobility and non-formal learning, ... are some of the other key topics that will be discussed during the LLL Week. For an overview of all events taking place during the week, have a look at the LLL Week 2013 calendar. You can already register to:
