Abstract

This paper presents lessons learned from the development of an open and online course designed to strengthen the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) competences of educators and trainers in Adult Education (AE). Focus of the course is not limited to skills related to teaching itself but rather on using ICTs in all aspects of their work: from planning and coordinating courses and training to evaluating them. While respondents throughout Europe acknowledge the importance and value of ICT for successful adult educators, they remain rather traditional and restrained in their actual use as well as in their intentions for further professional development. This translates into the need for a sufficiently grounded approach to professional development for ICT.
