ESRALE (European Study and Research in Adult Learning and Education)
HERC is pleased to be the Irish partner on the European Study and Research in Adult Learning and Education (ESRALE) project which involves partner universities from nine other countries: the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands, Romania, Serbia and Spain.
This project aims to coordinate and develop European research in adult education in a systematic way and will also impact on formal qualifications, including the development of a PhD-programme (EQF-level 8). ESRALE builds on an existing study program within the EMAE (European Master in Adult Education) project and the experiences gained there.
This project is supported by the EC Lifelong Learning Programme and will commence in October 2013.
ESRALE is coordinated by the Distance Independent Study Centre (DISC), Technical University of Kaiserslautern http://www.zfuw.uni-kl.de/en/
with formative evaluation undertaken by the Leibniz Centre of the German Institute of Adult Education, Bonn. http://www.die-bonn.de/institut/default.aspx
