Rethinking Adult and Continuing Education in the context of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
Blockseminar von: A. Carlsen
During the course, students will learn to critically analyse the Education 2030 Framework for Action, which unfolds sustainable development goal 4: “Assure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all”.
Students will examine the advantages and challenges of the inter-sectoral/cross-sectoral approaches to adult and continuing education and its impact on three other sectors - health and well-being; employment and the labor market; and social, civic and community life. The class discussions will be based on the Global Report on Adult Learning and Education 2016 (GRALE III).
The course contents will also provide students with a theoretical understanding of the global movement of adult education through the “International Conferences on Adult Education” - CONFINTEA - from 1949 to 2009 and the genesis of three GRALE reports. Students will critically analyse how the latest report (GRALE III published in 2016) constitutes the bridge between CONFINTEA VI in 2009 and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Reference will also be made to the 2015 UNESCO Recommendation on Adult Learning and Education. Students will debate about how and why UNESCO envisions these recommendations to be implemented around the world to enhance the status of adult learning and education at the national, regional and international levels.
Finally, with the inter-sectoral approach, the course will broaden the understanding of the adult education profession and shed light on new roles of adult education professionals in changing practice in local specific contexts in order to respond to the new sustainable development goals.
