Description: The international conference is promoted by the partners of the PRALINE project – Peer Review in Adult Learning to Improve formal and Non-formal Education. It represents an opportunity to discuss at European level the latest results of the project, starting from the piloting of the European Peer Review methodology adapted to adult learning carried out in France, Italy, Portugal, Lithuania and Malta. Direct evidence about the advantages and challenges of using such methodology will be directly provided by peers and piloting organizations – it will be presented the way adult Learning providers have perceived and receipted the methodology and insight on Quality Culture in adult Learning in partners’ contexts. In addition, participants will discuss the recommendations drawn for regional/national policy-makers and providers in order to adopt and mainstream the methodology and promote a culture of quality among adult education actors.
Quality is a transversal issue for the educational sectors and can act as a guarantee to ensure positive integrations with other European and national policies in the fields of social inclusion, cultural integration, active participation to society and regional development. To this regard, PRALINE outputs are coherent with the ongoing improvements of the EQAVET framework (EQAVET+) and propose practices to be combined with the systems already in place. The debate will be enriched by contributions from many relevant institutions and stakeholders at European level, such as the European Commission, CEDEFOP, EQAVET and EAEA. Indeed, a renewed cooperation among the different actors is considered essential in order to raise awareness on the impact of quality education and to reinforce practitioners’ commitment to quality practices.
