The project is
adressed to teachers for seniors as well as to seniors themselves. The European
society gets older and older. The ammount of older people who are still working
increases permanently. At the same time, the requirements on employed persons
to adapt to innovations and technological progress grow faster and faster. The
gap between professional experience of older citizens and technological
know-how of the young generation becomes bigger and bigger.
The project based on
the knowledge of a previous partnership which tried to make the access to new
technologies easier for older citizens.
It is aimed on teachers in the adult education with special offers for
senior citizens. Target-group-specific training methods and individual support
at the studying makes it possible to use existing knowledge profitably.
and young adults should be confirmed in their teaching activities, to improve
the networking in technological knowledge and working experience. The task of the project is to support
younger teachers in course planning and execution. The development of
special training methods is task of the project besides teamteaching and
observation. It is not a classic student-teacher-relation, the main subjects of
this education are exchange of knowledge and experience.
Target groups of the
project are senior citizens just like young teachers. Senior citizens profit
from improved teaching methods, teachers can utilize her acquired knowledge
also professionally, e.g. for presentations . Besides existing knowledge can be
utilized by it profitably for enterprises further on.
