ADULT EDUCATION FROM A DEVELOPMENT POLICY PERSPECTIVE: THE EXAMPLE OF THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE CURRICULUM GLOBALE IN CENTRAL ASIA

D. Kober

University of Duisburg-Essen (GERMANY)
The development aid has noticeably changed in recent decades. Initially focused on the provision of financial resources or an implementation of projects by foreign experts todays goals shift towards empowering people in developing countries to independently carry out necessary tasks. To be able to fulfill these tasks indepedently it requires qualifications and skills of young and older people in their countries. Therefore well-qualified experts, trainers and adult educators are being needed. Against this background, the dvv international and the German Institute for Adult Education developed the Curriculum globALE (Curriculum for Global Adult Learning and Education) together and started testing and implementing it in the region of Central Asia. The concerns of the partners is the qualification and awareness of people in the region that can later act as trainers and multipliers in the field of adult education. On the basis of the curriculum concept, the participants go through different modules and must pass an examination at the end, which leads them to the European Qualification Level 5 and in the long run should lead to an access to an academic study. The contribution of both the theoretical background and the conceptual framework as well as the first implementation experiences in Central Asian countries are presented to discuss opportunities, limitations and further development perspectives.
