Learning Link Scotland has been involved in developing and organising an Erasmus project with European partners around the theme of adult learning in scientific and cultural spaces. We had great plans in place to bring a range of CLD practitioners from Scotland to meet European colleagues to discuss creative ways to engage adult learners. We managed to complete our first planned visit to Dublin in 2020, where practitioners from Glasgow Science Centre, Learning Link Scotland and Education Scotland visited Dublin Science Gallery and Cool Planet Experience . This gave us the opportunity to discuss practice issues and solutions with colleagues at both venues. Indeed, elements of that visit have inspired content development on return to Scotland which will be recorded in our final report.
Unfortunately, COVID restrictions put a halt to further visits at that time but we were able to extend our end date and. Although our plans have had to be curtailed and reduced in size and scope, last week we completed one of the planned visits to NEMO in Amsterdam. We invited staff from NEMO to share ideas and views about engaging adults at an upcoming Stem / learning link network meeting .
