Teachers and volunteers in adult numeracy education can use the PD modules to improve the quality of the numerate behaviour of adult learners
HOW TO USE THE MOOCS?
The modules are structured in such a way they can be used also as on-line courses for self-study (like MOOCs) but also used in organized live PD for teachers and volunteers. It is an attempt to systematically work towards improvement of the quality of teaching and better learning outcomes in adult numeracy education. In each Professional Development module the relationship with the overarching framework will be described. The goal is to set up modules for teacher training that are usable for international use in European countries. Some questions the modules address:
What competencies do adults need to be numerate in the future society? What mathematical knowledge and skills are necessary to become numerate? How to solve numeracy related issues, questions, and problems in real-life situations?
How to teach numeracy in adult education? What competencies do teachers and volunteers need for teaching numeracy in adult education?
