New Lodge and Duncairn Community Health Partnership (NLDCHP) welcomed all the DISCOVER projects partners to Belfast, Northern Ireland for the kick-off meeting of the project. It was a highly productive meeting around a topic of significant importance, not just in the UK but across Europe.  Julie from NLDCHP was the Chair for the meeting ensuring everyone was given the opportunity for their input and the meeting progressed as per the Agenda.

The meeting facilitated the discussion of the partners roles and responsibilities within the project and their aims and views of Adult Education and Digital technologies.

The tangible results of the project was discussed at the meeting and the partners concluded that it will include:

Output 1 Develop and disseminate a Guide to Digital and Mobile Teaching to educate the educators on the strategic importance of digital pedagogy and the competences required of them as 21stcentury educators.

Output 2 Create and share a practical, interactive Toolkit, presenting the most valuable digital and mobile tools and the innovative ways in which they overcome learning barriers among low-skilled adults.

Output 3 Develop and promote an online platform to consolidate educators’ new digital competences, enabling them to practice in a supportive environment and receive peer support.

The first meeting was a complete success and really set the tone for how the partners hope the project will continue to run for the future!
