In January the EU BASKET partnership opened an invitation to participate in a moderated on-line debate about the professional development of basic skills teachers.
The debate took place over two weeks from the 14th to the 26th January, 2013 and focused on two related questions:
Do basic skills teachers need qualifications in teaching adults? Why?
Should basic skills teachers be trained in teaching basic skills in general, or be specialized in one single skill (literacy, language, numeracy or digital competences)?
