The learning environment in the international context is subject to constant change; in particular the use of digital media is undergoing considerable growth. This also exerts an influence on adult learning and education (ALE) services worldwide, and makes major new demands on course leaders, who have a key role to play when it comes to enabling and shaping digital ALE learning processes.
Therefore, DVV International developed an extension of Curriculum globALE, incorporating an additional module on digital teaching and learning in adult education. The goal of this module, entitled “Digital didactics and learning processes in adult education and training”, is to offer a framework for the further training of adult educators in which their digital skills are improved in order to make optimum use of the potential offered by digital learning, as well as enhancing learners’ digital skills. The present module is structured as an additional module to Curriculum globALE, but can also be used independently of it.
The module will be field-tested in Asia in the years to come, and supporting materials are to facilitate its implementation. DVV International will inform about the development of the digitalisation module on its website.
The module can be downloaded from the ALE Toolbox.
