There has been happening a lot in TRANSIT lately, though more behind the scenes. As persons in charge for TRANSIT, Irena Sgier and Ronald Schenkel, have finalised a first trend report, in which they summarise the work of the last years. The trend report provides information about the why of the think tank, its way of working, but above all it informs about the work on the future scenarios and the resulting tube map of adult learning. For all those who want a complete overview it is a valuable source of information.
Almost at the same time, SVEB published an issue of its professional journal Education Permanente dedicated to the future of adult learning. It’s a real eye catcher thanks to a special effort of the graphic team. But it also has a lot to offer in terms of content.
The magazine continues TRANSIT’s exploratory work. In addition to numerous interviews with experts from all over Switzerland, it also includes a contribution on the role of science for the development of a future strategy for adult learning, an analysis on the significance of lifelong learning as a social innovation, and a research on how the institutions of adult learning are preparing for the future.
Particularly worth reading is the report on a specific project: Openki. It aims to facilitate self-organised learning sessions. The makers of Openki consider their project as a lab for a new way of leaning without dedicated roles of teachers and learners.
