Invitation to the ICAE Virtual seminar on “Skills and Competencies”

We are proud and happy to announce the ICAE Virtual seminar 2017 – on the topic of “Skills and Competencies”! The seminar is free of charge, open to anyone and will start on April 3rd.

Following each issue of DVV International’s journal Adult Education and Development, the International Council for Adult Education (ICAE) offers the chance to discuss the topics raised in the print issue in a virtual seminar.

The virtual seminar wants to promote a debate and dialogue on selected articles from the journal in order to go deeper and broaden the analysis. It creates a virtual space as an opportunity to share experiences on community learning modalities, in different regions and contexts, and to inspire new initiatives.
