The originally planned in vivo exchange on the current status of the implementation of the Curriculum GlobALE (CG) took place in the form of a webinar on 27 May between the coordinators and the DVV team members from Guatemala, Mexico, Cuba and Peru. Two representatives responsible for adult education from the Ministry of Education in Ecuador also took part in the virtual debate.
After four years of experience with the training of master trainers in the four countries mentioned above, the two regional offices for Central America and the Andean region have initiated a documentation and analysis of the experiences of adult educators in working with the curriculum. The aim is to further develop and update the CG, which is urgently needed for the qualification and professionalisation of the adult education sector in many Latin American countries. The four-hour supra-regional webinar with representatives from all countries was the first step in a follow-up process. In June, each country will evaluate its experiences in further virtual sessions to formulate recommendations for future implementation.
It became clear from the presentations that each country has gone its own way in implementation, but that there are nevertheless similar challenges and fundamental questions that need to be answered through mutual consultation. In Peru, the implementation of the CG has led to the establishment of a network of actors in youth and adult education who are applying the curriculum in practice and who are supported by the DVV International office in Lima.
The only way to ensure the quality of the Curriculum GlobALE in the long term and render it sustainable is to continue the exchange of information between the parties who have implemented it. The whole process and the results will be documented in order to be available to other regions and countries that want to use the Curriculum GlobALE.
