AIM

The Learning exchange (LE) is an informational hub for collection, processing and sharing of information on people who search for knowledge and people who offer knowledge. The database is updated daily and allows the users to freely exchange offers and demands for different knowledge and skills.

The LE first started operation in 1992 at the SIAE on a trial basis. At the time, we developed an organisation system and computer programme data processing and ensured the support of public media. The main LE operates in the Ljubljana City Library. The first and main LE in Ljubljana was later joined by the LEs in: Maribor, Novo Mesto, Izola, Murska Sobota, Škofja Loka, Ptuj, Celje, Postojna, Nova Gorica and Žalec.

 

OBJECTIVES

The objectives of the Learning exchange are:

  • To share knowledge and experiences;
  • To spread the culture of learning;
  • To connect knowledge, learning and interests of members.

 

DESCRIPTION

The Learning exchange (LE) was developed as part of the project at the SIAE. The Slovenian network of LEs includes 10 LEs across Slovenia and is coordinated by the main LE that operates in the Ljubljana City Library.

The subject of free exchange of offers and demands is knowledge, skills and competences from different fields. The LE ensures sharing of information on people who have a certain knowledge or who look for a certain knowledge but does not check the quality of knowledge on offer. The data on participants and knowledge in demand or on offer is recorded on the application forms and in the computer database. The most common forms of communication with participants are via e-mail, telephone or in person. A member of the LE is each individual offering or looking for certain knowledge that joins Slovenian LEs in order to freely offer or acquire a certain type of knowledge. The manner of free learning and the location of exchange depend on the needs, wishes and options of peoples offering and looking of knowledge.

Collaboration with public media is crucial for the LE, since the successful operation of LEs across Slovenia depends on constant and flexible sharing of information on free participation in the LE and on the current knowledge offers and demands with the largest possible number of people.

 

ACTIVITIES

Ensuring development of the LE:

  • Collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport on preparation of professional groundwork, guidelines and other documents;
  • Development of recommendations for LE updates;

Working with the LE participants to collect, process and share data on knowledge on offer and in demand.

 

KEY ACHIEVEMENTS

In 2016, the LE had 1247 participants, 2182 demands for knowledge, 938 knowledge seekers and 380 educational offers.
