(Digital Empowerment for Up-Skilling Adults)
DELSA project Kick Off Meeting:
8 Partners from 6 European Countries (Belgium, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Spain) were hosted by IHF asbl in Brussels on 6th December, 2018 for the Kick Off Meeting of DELSA – Digital Empowerment for Low Skilled Adults, a project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission, Key Action 2, Strategic Partnerships for Adult Education.
DELSA addresses the issue of low digital competences and skills and will develop immediate and concrete training and educational resources to advance digital abilities of low skilled adults.
Such resources will be defined according to an accurate evidence-based assessment, ensuring a bottom-up approach which will produce outcomes fully relevant and consistent with the actual needs of the target group.
During the meeting, the Partners had the opportunity to introduce themselves and got to know each other in depth. After the presentation, an overview of DELSA was given and all Partners agreed upon the URL websites and Project logo.
The Consortium kick-started the project implementation by planning specific activities to analyse the phenomenon and produce project outputs. Then, Partners outlined Dissemination activities by agreeing on the use of both Online and Offline means to give great visibility to project actions and results. Multiplier Events in each project country are envisioned during the DELSA lifetime to foster project visibility and to spread its methodology and outputs.
The background of Learning Innovation Ltd (LEARNI) shows, the organisation has several activities and services that are strongly relevant to the objectives of the DELSA project. As an official adult education institute, LEARNI organized and implemented different trainings and courses for different target groups. In addition, the employees of LEARNI provided services for development of new training programmes, training materials, guidelines and best practices. Thanks to this consolidated experience in the development and implementation of large-scale adult education and capacity building programmes – content development of training materials in 5 languages are going to be LEARNI’s concrete tasks in this project. The contents are along the following 5 areas:
- Information and data literacy
- Communication and collaboration
