1) PEER REVIEW
Intellectual Output 3 of this project is a collection of materials (guidelines, handbook, teaching aids) for those who want to implement one of the methods developed in this project. In Month 30 we plan to organise a three days workshop (international joint staff training event) where we expect from each partner organisation (adult education providers) 4 staff members attending (overall 32 persons). During the workshop, they will be made acquainted with the new methods. Then their task will be to develop, supported by the materials developed in the project, their own learning offers for a group of their choice. (We plan to do this in small groups of probably two participants each.) To this end, it is necessary that the tangible outputs of Intellectual Output 3 are ready by the date of the training. However, we plan to have them ready in a preliminary, still editable form.
Thus, the training event will be also be used as a peer review for the tangible outputs. Depending on the result of the workshop, these outcomes will then in the following Month 31-32 be improved or adjusted.
Criteria to measure the quality of the event: participants are informed about all new methods, are in-depth acquainted with two of them and have had opportunity to critically assess the approach against a broader context.
2) MULTIPLIKATION OF PROJECT RESULTS
Participants of the Learning Activity (short term joint staff training) are adult educators who so far were not involved with the project and who now get acquainted in-depth with the methods developed. During the event they will work in small groups to take first steps to (virtually, or even really) implement a method of their choice with beneficiaries from their home region. Thus the methods developed start to get applied in other organisations and regions.
One part of the event will be a panel discussion about the topic of the project: adult literacy and inclusion of groups with specific obstacles. Using the experience of 32 senior adult educators from 7 countries, the project and the methods developed will be reflected on the background of a broad European pool of expertise. The results of the discussion will be used to shape the conclusions in the project documentary that will be produced and finalised in the 3 following months.
