Because of the COVID-19 restriction, the LTTA was virtual. The theme of the activity was "Best practice exchange on the professional development of adult educators". The training was attended by representatives of 7 countries (United Kingdom, Austria, Slovakia, Turkey, Switzerland, Spain and Latvia) and was organized by Daniele Trevisan – Director of Kairos Europe Ltd, located in London.
The objective of LTTA was to learn from the best experience of using arts, ICT and improve professional skills in work with disadvantaged categories.
During the first two days the participants, together with the lecturer Lara Palmiani - trainer and artistic director at Legal Aliens Theatre in London, got acquainted with one of the art directions - drama - as a method of teaching in adult education, for example, in learning a foreign language. Participants danced, learned to breathe properly, as well as a variety of interactive games, for example storytelling in different ways, with adults that can be used both face-to-face and online. Here you can see example of one of the interactive ways of learning foreign language - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIHnGvbiWU8.
