IDEAL project survey

EADTU is associate partner in the IDEAL project. IDEAL stands for "Impact of Distance Education on Adult Learning" and is a joint initiative of the International Council for Open and Distance Education (ICDE), the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) and StudyPortals, and is funded by the European Commission. As part of the research a survey was launched aimed at users of European distance education programmes or courses. It will generate data on the on their needs and experiences as adult learners and forms the basis of how the distance education offer of European higher education institutions can be better matched to the needs of adult learners. The survey remains open until 25 July and the results of the survey will be available in an online report and distributed to respondents in October 2014. As an incentive for the participants, a prize draw to win one of 10 Amazon vouchers worth EUR 50 is organised.
