Lifelong Information on Studies and Training for Educational Needs (LISTEN)
?The project aims to trace the motivations which drive adult learners coming from different experiences and situations to start school again, and so to develop and increase the motivation to learning of disadvantaged adults (young people socially marginalized, unemployed, people in prison etc.), to improve the professional skills and competence of the teachers through the exchange of good practice.
In the first year the teachers will meet to create a portfolio of information based on of their experiences. The experiences of the teachers, dealing with innovative approach, solution of particular problems, particularly motivating methodologies etc. will be presented during a seminar and will be collected in a CD-Rom or in another suitable form, in English. This will encourage the teachers to use their abilities in the use of the technical equipment and of the English language, both essential in school today.
During the second year the methodology of biography will be used to motivate and encourage adult learners in their learning path. They will be invited to write their personal stories as adult learners. Every partner will choose 3-4 stories that will be translated into English and collected in a CD-Rom. The students will compare their experiences in a workshop during a meeting. Through an examination of these student and teacher experiences we hope to gain a greater understanding of the adult learner, their motivation and how they can be supported in their return to education.
