EPALE – New e-Platform for Adult Learning in Europe
EPALE is a new multilingual open membership community funded by the European Commission. The site is designed to be of interest to teachers, trainers, researchers, academics, policy makers and other professionals in adult learning across Europe. It is possible to find events around Europe that relate to adult learning. There is a Newsroom, where you can find out more about the latest developments and trends in adult learning, and sign up for the newsletter. There will be more tools on the site, including user profiles and a partner search area, as well as rate buttons. It will be possible to exchange news, views, ideas and resources with other adult learning professionals throughout Europe. There will be five main adult learning themes, including learner support, learner environments and life skills, as well as adult education policy developments and best practices in improving quality in your work. EUCIS-LLL welcomes the creation of the ePlatform and hopes it will be of good use to adult education professionals, who share our views on the importance of coherent lifelong learning strategies.
