Free On-line Training Resources adapted for Adult Refugees: An introduction for educators

The ADVENUS project aims to improve and extend the offer of high quality, culturally sensitive open access e-learning resources to adult refugees between the ages of 18-40 years and their trainers and teachers in EU countries. Based on interviews and trials with refugees and their teachers in four European countries, the Advenus project has adapted five online courses for refugees, where the overall objective is to strenghten employability and inclusion in their new host countries. The webinar will focus on how you as an educator can make use of these free resources, and also share challenges and experiences.
