LLinE 1/2014

InfoNet Newsletter 2/2014 announces the recently published issue of the LLinE web magazine, dedicated to the OECD-study into adult competencies, PIAAC - produced in cooperation with the InfoNet correspondents’ network.

LLinE editor Markus Palmen describes the content: “The subtitle of this issue reveals what we have tried to achieve through this collection of materials. Give a voice - and a face - to an otherwise easily faceless mass survey. We want to share the experiences of the people who designed the study. Listen to the very people whose skills the survey wants to measure. Give a forum to those critical of the survey. Hear from the decision makers whose task it is to use the study's findings to draft policy."

In this InfoNet Newsletter we have highlighted three of these articles:

• Bernhard Schmidt-Herta, Johanna Gebrande, Jens Friebe: Competencies in later life
• Citizens Panel – Skills: building blocks for goals
• What we did with PIAAC – advocates at work

A number of other articles deal with the theme of the issue in different ways (You can access all of them here: http://www.lline.fi/en):
