Experience Report by Prof. Shah

In november 2016 we had the pleasure to welcome Prof. Shah, director of the International Institue od Adult and Lifelong Education (IAEA) in New Delhi, at the Professorship of Adult and Continuing Education. In his time as a teacher at the university of Würzburg he held the seminar "International Networks and Organisations in Adult and Lifelong Learning". The aim of the course was to familiarise the students  with the sturctures and working methodes of international organisations. The focus was in particular on gaining a global perspective of Adult and continuing Education. Within the seminar an excursion has taken place to UNESCO Institute of Lifelong Learning (UIL) in Hamburg. There the participants had the chance to talk to experts and to inform themselfs about the role of UIL in the context of Adult education. In the IAEA Newsletter the Experience Reprot by Prof. Shah was published.
