Adults and learning during covid-19
“As early as March of this year, the EAEA asked its members for information about the consequences the challenging health situation is having on adult education. We participated in their survey and later wrote an article about it. The key message was that we are doing our best to adapt to the new circumstances and that we are not giving up. The activities of the adult education community during the first wave of COVID-19 were studied in much more detail by Dr Tanja Možina and her colleagues, who presented the evaluation at the recent AAEC 2020. Her contribution also included findings as well as recommendations for the second wave, which has really been making our lives miserable since the second half of October.
Before that, however, there was a period when we could, to a limited extent, still socialise, learn, create and even celebrate. We used that time to carry out the jubilee 25th LLW 2020. The EAEA wanted to know how we were able to do that and asked us to share our experience with the participants at the EAEA Virtual Annual Conference. Entitled “Outreach and Access in Adult Learning”, the conference was held on 19 and 20 November on Zoom and attracted some 130 participants.” Zvonka Pangerc Pahernik, SIAE
