ImplOED project (2016–2018):
FOR A MORE INCLUSIVE & EQUAL SOCIETY OUR GOAL: INCLUSION OF MARGINALISED GROUPS IN ADULT EDUCATION
OUR TOOL: OED RESULTS WHAT IS OED?
WHAT ARE OUR OBJECTIVES?
• Changing the mind-set of policy makers and adult education providers; • Mainstreaming the results of the OED Grundtvig network; • Transferring the OED results to different sectors (vocational education and training, basic skills, etc.).
The Outreach, Empowerment, Diversity Grundtvig Network (OED) is an award-winning EU funded project that tackled the need for outreach to marginalised groups, especially migrants and ethnic minorities, for the development of more diversity in adult education. It ran between 2011 and 2014.
HOW ARE WE DOING IT?
• By organising meetings, conferences and workshops for policy-makers and education providers during 2017; • By publishing an instruction manual, due in autumn 2018, which brings together proposals on concrete policy and practice solutions.
WHAT ARE THE OED RESULTS?
• METHODOLOGY GUIDELINES for adult educators to improve empowering teaching methodology for diverse target groups; • POLICY RECOMMENDATIONS that tackle the integration of marginalised groups, their empowerment and participation in lifelong learning.
