We are currently working on work package 3: Designing a curriculum/learning model. The Education and Training Service Center in Iceland is overseeing the work which is progressing well. The people at the Education and Training Service Center are working on designing courses in adult teaching and learning which they call Stiklur in Icelandic, it is a combination of 20 modules in educational and instructional technology/methodology for adult trainers. They are designing courses for a wide range of people working in the field of adult education and human resource management in companies. Their main emphasis is on newapproachesinteachingandlearning accordingtoideas abouteffectiveness and quality in adult learning.
