Konstantinos Boumpourekas, Efthymios – Spyridon Georgiou



Adult education is the process of adult interaction in the educational process where experiences are analysed, skills and knowledge are developed. (BrookFieldst, 1968). The aim of adult education programs is to improve the quality and of educational process. A key factor contributing to the achievement of this goal is the acquisition and development of new skills of adult educators, who teach in these programs. The adult educator is the most important factor in the educational process and plays an important role in the whole learning group, in which he/she must be a team leader, a trainer, a team member, and the “audience” outside the team, in order to succeed as an adult educator. (Rogers A., 1998).
