7 Main results: Relevant issues concerning EU Brief but structured overview of EU (history, structure, bodies)Quantity/quality of EU influence on national/regional levelEU and pension systems (policy, homogenisation, developments)EU and marginalized groups (age, culture, language etc.)EU and demographic changes (policy, activities, developments etc.)EU and funds for senior citizens (possibilities, chances, threats etc.)
8 Main results: Senior Citizens and AEC What is AEC in first place and what does it mean for SC (e.g. concept, policy, implementation, rights, duties etc.)How can SC participate more actively in AEC (e.g. “club of the wise”, networking on transnational level, cooperation with schools, access/empowerment to volunteer work etc.)SC and their responsibility/duty as “time witnesses” and ”living historic documents”How can AEC help SC to care for own interests/issues (e.g. best practise exchange how to optimise life situation/social status for SC)Meet other SC and learn from each other
9 Main results: Project management Basic information about concept of EU projectsDetailed information concerning a programme/fund (etc. objectives, aims, structure, payments etc.)Project Management (application writing, structuring, work flow, work plan, instruments, quality assurance, dissemination, reporting, administration/accountancy etc. )appropriate IT literacyEnglish (or another foreign language if needed)

11 Main results: Training Course key factors Clear description of entrance level (concerning competences, know-how, experiences etc.)Appropriate organisation and basic design (duration, location, accessibility, mobility etc.)Make sure pedagogic staff is experienced/trained in working with senior learnersSmall learner groups (max persons?)High level of blended learningHigh level of interactive/group learning
12 Main results: Training Course key factors High level of learning by doing!Do not underestimate know how, competences and knowledge of many senior learners!Respect KISS – Keep it small and simple!Low speed and high level of redundancies during lessons (because this is a very complex topic many learners are not familiar with at all)Reduce theory - increase practical approachesLink learning issues with real life of learnersRespect the learners and their abilities!
13 Workshop issues:1) Main areas and key factors/standards for AESAEC pedagogic concept (such as structure, duration, organisation, educational level of learners etc.?)2) What are your suggestions for content/structure of the “given” modules?3) What are your suggestions for topic/content/structure etc. of the “missing” modules? (consider approx. 3 or 4 modules)4) How do you think “authentic location learning”, “multi sensorial learning” and “learning by doing” can be implemented in our course?
