“A Step forward in Wellbeing in the field of Adult Education – WELLNESS2”
Strategic Partnerships for adult education
In order to be motivated, the adult trainee has to be trained within a learning environment that will enable him/her to implement the training paths in a state of well-being (in many occasions the formal and non formal evaluation of the training courses for adults, have reported that adult trainees often feel extremely stressed and overwhelmed by the challenges of their professional and personal lives). On the other hand, the well-being of the adult trainee passes through the right teaching approach, the well-being of the trainers themselves and their skills to create a “well-being learning environment”. An important role, within this framework , is also played by the adult education institutions, that have the responsibility to provide the proper organisational aspects (in terms of physical structures for the implementation of the courses, and the provision of training material and administrative/bureaucratic organization).
This project is proposed in order to facilitate development and validation of “well-being learning environment” in adult staff and learners as we perceive well-being to be the foundation for effective teaching and learning and utilizing one’s potential.
In this framework, the creation of a “Protocol” containing the procedures, learning approaches, training tools and physical/logistic aspects of the learning environment, is to be considered as one of the milestone (and the one of the main outputs) of the project. The Protocol will be the basic
document to follow to validate these environments, and certify them as “Well-being learning environments”.
This project will be beneficial for all organisations involved in the consortium as well as for their networks and stakeholders and end users to which the project outputs will be disseminated and easily accessible.
