Projekt Financial Literacy Through Public Libraries (Edukacja finansowa w bibliotekach publicznych) ma na celu zwiększenie poziomu wiedzy finansowej osób dorosłych poprzez nowe podejście i wykorzystanie ogromnego potencjału bibliotek publicznych jako nieformalnych edukatorów i instytucji zajmujących się kształceniem przez całe życie. Konsorcjum projektu tworzą 4 organizacje z 4 krajów Europy Środkowo-wschodniej - Polska, Słowenia, Bułgaria i Rumunia. Dwóch partnerów to biblioteki, a dwóch pozostałych to fundacje współpracujące z sieciami bibliotek publicznych na poziomie krajowym.
“Ovid Densusianu” Hunedoara-Deva County Library hosted the Transnational Partners Meeting within the Financial Literacy through Public Libraries Project, co-funded by the European Union through the Erasmus+ Agency from Poland.
The event took place for two days, December 17-18, 2020. Under normal circumstances, our library would have been visited by the project teams from the three partner countries: Poland (main coordinator: FRSI - Foundation for the Development of the Information Society), Bulgaria (partner: GLBF - Global Libraries Bulgaria Foundation), Slovenia (partner: NUK - National and University Library of Slovenia).
Due to pandemic restrictions established in all the four partner countries, the transnational meeting took place online.Întâlnirea Transnațională în cadrul Proiectului „Alfabetizare”, la Biblioteca Județeană „Ovid Densusianu” Hunedoara-Deva - Servuspress
In October 2020, a conference was held in Poland entitled "Adult educator - competences of the future" organized by the Innovation and Knowledge Foundation summarizing and disseminating the results of the project
"Expanding and developing the competences of adult educators" co-financed by the Erasmus + program.
The aim of the conference was to present the results of the project and summarize the results of research on the functioning of adult education systems in Europe - in England, Poland and Italy. Conclusions from good practices were collected during pilot training and project implementation in selected countries.
During the conference, the publications that are the result of the project were also discussed:
1. A report on the functioning of adult education systems in selected European countries, which summarizes the strengths and weaknesses of adult education systems in all three countries and indicates areas for change.
2. Development of competences of adult educators. A training manual for individual and group work - download the manual in PDF
The handbook consists of 5 thematic modules with a description of individual competences, as well as educational exercises and diagnostic tools. Each module includes a detailed syllabus training program for the use and organization of the workshops. The material was also tested during pilot online training.
The ENG version of the manual can be downloaded here:
3. A report summarizing the project "Expanding and developing the competences of adult educators", which includes conclusions from the pilot training and summarizes the effects of the project.
