Get involved in the free 5-day training in Portugal in March 2019

What’s been done so far?

The second transnational project meeting was held in December 2018. The partners met in Albacete in Spain and discussed about the development of Open Educational Resources.

I-Motole partnership completed the first project outcomes Needs Analysis & Analysis of Good Practice and Training Package for Educators in Adult Education to Develop Intrinsic Motivation. Both of these outcomes can be found online on our website.

How to get involved

Currently we are developing activities based on non-formal learning for the next project outcome: Validation Portfolio. We will carry out an in depth Research on Validation needs and methodology. We will develop a structured Portfolio that serves different needs and contexts. This Portfolio will be easy to use and relevant to adult learners.

You can get involved by engaging on this online platform. The I-Motole
platform will gather Open educational resources (OER) addressed to adult practitioners, educators and trainers. The OER aim is to share tools around the question of engaging learning and motivation.
The purpose is to turn OER into a space where professionals and educators have the possibility to introduce their work. Users can engage around themes available on the platform such as motivation and learning.

A Recommendations Booklet will summarise areas of improvement at local, regional and international level. This booklet will be found on Feel free to share comments and further ideas.

Training in Portugal 18.-22.3

Free training course for learners at risk of social inclusion from all partner countries will be held in Beja, Portugal in March. The aim is to share the results of the Validation Portfolio workshops held in each country. The objectives for this course are to learn in both formal and non-formal adult education.
