UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) published new material on family literacy and learning. To avoid an educational crisis, one of the learning innovations considers the community-centered and family-centered approach.
“The family is the principal source of support and motivation for learning, for children as well as for adults. Family literacy and family learning programmes are based on the premise that the family plays a leading role in the education and learning of its members. For decades, UNESCO has advocated family literacy and learning as part of a holistic approach to lifelong learning. It links three major objectives: (1) the well-being of children and their families; (2) universal basic education; and (3) the advancement of literacy and numeracy for all young people and adults.”

Eurydice Report shared new materials on higher education. “Modernisation of Higher Education in Europe: Academic Staff – 2017.” The publication investigates different angles for academic staff of higher education in the modern European context and aims to systematise different approaches to internationalisation. Eurydice gathered information in 35 countries and created a qualitative-based report deciphering higher education systems. You can read and download the report using the link above.
“This report aims to provide insight into the realities faced by higher education academic staff at a time of fast-moving change and increasing societal demand. Fluctuating student numbers, new funding and steering mechanisms are among the features of today’s European higher education landscape, but not enough is known about how academic staff are affected by such changes. As academic staff are vital to the success of higher education, this report places them centre stage.”
