Much more in English about Danish Adult Education Association
The DAEA has expanded their English language website.
Real competencies and democracy are currently the main priorities of the Danish Adult Education Association. Information about and examples of these efforts are now available on-line in English. The DAEA has expanded our English language website.
The liberal adult education organisations provide the public with more than knowledge and practical skills: The participants also learn abstract skills such as concept development, collaboration skills, taking care of our own health and much, much more. We call this knowledge and these skills ‘real competencies´. Real competencies comprise one of the Danish Adult Education Association (DAEA)´s focus areas. We have translated our main arguments for this into English: What is the benefit for:
the individual person
liberal adult education
The cartoon crisis became a task and an area of opportunity for Danish adult education. DAEA therefore decided to turn focus on democratic values in Denmark. The campaign is called "Educate Democracy". We focus on Danish democratic values: How do we define our values and how do we deal with diversity. The methods to be used are education, cultural contact and dialogue. Some of our written material has now been translated into English.
