Processes for identification, validation and certification of skills

The workshop aims to promote the development of skills related to the monitoring and evaluation of adult learning and training processes, highlighting the importance and complexity of the issues concerning these dimensions in relation to the international scientific debate in the fields of adult education and educational evaluation and in the light of the growing emphasis on lifelong learning and lifewide learning concepts and on the recognition of key and transversal competences, however and everywhere acquired. Based on these assumptions and objectives, consideration will be given to procedures and instruments that can be used to support the monitoring and evaluation of adult learning and training processes.
