EVALUATING THE ADULT EDUCATION PROVISION: THE CREATE2EVALUATE PLATFORM AS AN OPEN ONLINE RESOURCE FOR LOCAL POLICY MAKERS
CREATE2Evaluate is an international project co-founded by the Erasmus+ Programme which aims to enhance performance and efficiency in Adult Education (AE) by addressing the gap between EU/national strategies and local/regional implementation as well as the challenge of formulating appropriate AE policy. The goal is to enable policy makers to better coordinate and plan policy, share experiences and enhance inter-regional and cross-border cooperation.
The project is the official follow-up of a previous project (Competitive Regions and Employability of Adults through Education), which ran from 2017 – 2019; the CREATE2 partnership wants to capitalise on the success of ‘CREATE’ by nurturing its heritage with significant and consistent updates that will further stimulate the debate around the role of evaluation in strategies and the policy cycle in the domain of AE to improve the image of evaluation – not as a means to find blame and point fingers, but as a way to improve the processes and outcomes to the benefit of all involved.
Out of the four Intellectual Output foreseen during proposal, the first one has already been completed; the Consortium is glad to present the official CREATE2 Online Educational Resource Platform: the virtual showcase of the project and the online repository of all major results and deliverables achieved by the Strategic Partnership.
The Platform is on multilanguage version (English, German, Italian, Polish, Romanian, Spanish) and it is completely free for consultation, with no log-in credentials required
The Platform represent the major visibility mean of the project for its mainstreaming and dissemination. Each section of the platform is a stand-alone resource to get a comprehensive sense on project’s results and inputs.
Particularly relevant is the CREATE Package in which partners collected all major resources coming as a legacy from the previous ‘CREATE’ project. This section will be updated as soon as new relevant sources are finalised.
To remain updated with project’s development, please consider to subscribe to the CREATE2 Associates; an online “Community of Practice” for stakeholders operating in the domain of Adult Education and Long Life Learning. So far, nearly 50 organisations decided to took part in our initiative: the CREATE2 Community gathers together local / regional public bodies and promotes greater opportunities for networking and international exchange of good practices
