The title of the project is Motivated, Creative, and Modern Teacher – the Base of Successful Adult
Learning Process. Project is based on deliberative, instructional adult educators’ mobilities. In the
frameworks of project participants will be educated in topics related to adult education to make every
participator more motivated, creative and modern to improve process of adult education and adult
students’ benefits. It will be reached by intensive course provided by each project partner who is
experienced professional in adult education. Every course consists of theory, assignments, discussions,
observations of lessons and educational work, practising in every partner’s institution. Project is
significant opportunity to exchange with experience and to train educators of adults to acquire new
methods, competences, to perfect and deepen teacher knowledge about education systems, and culture

resignation of school curriculum, and creation of new institutional linkages between Nordic/ Baltic
countries for continuous corporation in the future. Each theme of course is selected advisedly and
relevant for adult education. Activities are focused on improving work of educators and institutions of
