Knowledge and understanding Module 1: Adult education 1. Know the main elements that characterize the complexity of adult life and the theories that deepen its meaning from a behavioral, psychological and existential point of view. 2. Know and understand the evolutionary dimension, present in adulthood, and the possibility of its being delineated in the direction of an ever-greater awareness of the meaning of one's social role and of one's existential task, also in relation to the other ages of life. 3. Understand the problematic nature of the experiences that are at the base of crisis, hardship, marginality and deviance situations, which characterize the existential personal experiences of young people and adults. Identification, in these cases, of the most appropriate educational intervention methods. Module 2: Life cycle education 1. Understanding of the double deep connection, of continuity and discontinuity, between all the ages of life; understanding a single age of life requires understanding other ages as well. 2. Know and understand that in every age of life we live, in different times and in different ways, all the dimensions that are proper to human existence. Module 3: Life cycle education laboratory 1. Understand that the desire of the human being is to live fully every age of life. 2. Reflect on the fact that the experiences of hardship, marginality and deviance are linked to experiences of lack or lack of positive experiences. Applying knowledge and understanding Module 1: Adult education 1. Apply the knowledge learned from the literature and related to specific problems on adult life, in order to contribute to developing educational projects that are adequately contextualized and close to common experiences. 2. Formulate educational methods of dialogue with adults, according to methods and projects that respect adults' desire for conscious learning that respects their own history and experience of reality. 3. Formulate projects and educational interventions aimed at strengthening the essential elements for a reactivation of the process of recovery and development of one's own existential path, which characterizes adulthood, from youth to old age. Module 2: Life cycle education 1. Reflect on the analogies of meaning that are present in different ages of life, even if the ways in which we live are apparently quite different. 2. Search for direct or indirect, experiential or literary testimonies of how it is possible to communicate and share values and meanings between all ages of life, even with different languages and levels of understanding. Module 3: Life cycle education laboratory Understanding, through personal and group work, the use of memory, storytelling and reflection can be used to heal wounds, reconcile internal and interpersonal conflicts, and rediscover the sense of one's identity and dignity. 2. Experiment, through appropriate group activities, also in e-learning mode, how one would like to live in another age of life.
