Self-study training units

The MATURE team has developed its self-study training programme through a process of review of and debate about existing work in the field of later-life learning.  The search for material and ideas has encompassed recent European Lifelong Learning Programme projects, European statistics, information and data and national initiatives. Members of the MATURE team have worked together previously on issues of ageing and later life learning.

The MATURE team’s purpose in undertaking this work was to demonstrate how products from a wide variety of sources could be made more ‘usable’ for practitioners. MATURE training seeks to bring to the attention of learning facilitators the vast wealth of material that is freely available to them from other people’s endeavours across Europe. In doing so we hope that more will understand how outputs from project work translate into classroom action.

    As a teacher with long term experience of working with adult learners how could I be involved in this project?

    Thank you for this query, Maria. If you go to the ‘MATURE and you’ pages you can keep an eye on what is happening in MATURE. You can also use the reply box on the ‘have your say’ page to tell us about any work that you are involved with that links with MATURE or any information that you think the MATURE team should know about. You might like to try out some (or all) of the MATURE self-study training units and tell us what you think (using the ‘leave a reply’ box) or…you could consider signing up for our European conference in Hamburg in September this year.
