STEMS - Supporting Teachers and Staff in Motivating Adult Learners

In order to improve the current insufficient participation of adults in learning in partner countries and across Europe, we need to provide high-quality education opportunities and identify main barriers that hinder participation and persistence of adults in learning. The aim of the project is to address problems and difficulties and respond to the needs of adult education providers and adult learners.
The project aim is to contribute to:
- increasing adult participation in learning
- adult learners' demands for quality education provision that offers necessary support and takes into account learner needs
- adult education providers' needs for teachers and staff equipped with necessary competences,
strategies, and tools for motivating and engaging adult learners as well as maintaining their
persistence in learning.

The project plans to increase the target groups' quality of interaction with adult learners due to
increased communication, and motivation competences, better cooperation, and communication
through ICT tools. Thanks to the online platform, the target groups will also improve their access and use of online collections of digital training material and they will need less time to select motivation messages and instruments.

The project will also have positive results for the participating organisations since project partners will improve their in-person and digital training approaches, strengthen their cooperation with the relevant AE institutions in their regions and countries as well as relevant stakeholders in other countries, contributing to their internationalisation.

Partner countries: Croatia, Romania, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary
