A virtual seminar on “skills and competencies” organised by the International Council for Adult Education (ICAE) will start on 3 April. The seminar is free of charge and open to anyone.

Following each issue of DVV International’s journal Adult Education and Development, the International Council for Adult Education (ICAE) offers an opportunity for a discussion of the topics raised in the print issue in a virtual seminar.

The virtual seminar aims to promote a debate and dialogue on selected articles from the journal in order to delve deeper and broaden the analysis. It creates a virtual space as an opportunity to share experiences on the concept of skills and competencies, in different regions and contexts, and to inspire new initiatives.

The virtual seminar will start on 3 April and will last for approximately three weeks. The following articles of issue 83 of Adult Education and Development will be the starting point of the seminar:
