In 2014 a European Commision funded worksop titled ''Engaging Adult Literacy Learners in Active Learning Approaches '' was held in Belfast organised by Learning Teaching Assessment Solutions.
Led by Fay Frazer and Jill Brown, twenty teachers from Bulgaria, Finland, France, Germany, Malta, Poland, Romania, Turkey and Portugal explored and shared effective practice in the learning and teaching of literacy.
Objectives of the course:
1] Critically reflect on current beliefs and practices regarding the teaching and learning of literacy.
2] Explore ways in which adult learners may become more actively engaged in their own learning.
3] Investigate more connected and challenging teaching methods.
4] Develop a rich collaborative learning activity that may be used to promote adult learners' confidence and competence in literacy skills.
