Abstract:

MATURE stands for Making Adult Teaching Useful, Relevant and Engaging. It is a Grundtvig multilateral project co-funded by the European Commission's Lifelong Learning program. The project began in October 2012 and ends in September 2014. It will develop training for adult educators on the theme of engaging and motivating older adults who, because of disadvantage, find it difficult to participate in group learning. The MATURE team will: conduct research; develop and deliver units of training for face-to-face and online use; and create a booklet for organisations outside education who act as intermediaries between older adults and the services they need or are entitled to.
