A Teacher from DOBA Faculty Speaks at the Regional Conference on Innovative Learning Assistance
On 8, 12 and 22 November 2019, the regional conference on Reverse Mentoring in the Light of Generational Cooperation and the Aging of Labour Force was held. The conference was organised by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Slovenia as part of the POLET project. The event was dedicated to an innovative method of assisting learning and improving intergenerational relations and was held with the aim of attracting various interested parties, spreading project activities and, in particular, sharing best practices. The fact is that in the coming years, there will be changes in the Slovenian labour market that will require urgent adaptation from the side of employers. By 2020, the age of one fifth of the country’s population will exceed 65 years. The share of young people in the labour market is declining, and the proportion of older people (from 55 to 64 years old) is increasing.
The lecturer and moderator of the panel discussion was the teacher of the DOBA Faculty, Dr Živa Veingerl Čič. She presented a report entitled “Reverse Mentoring: Factors Affecting the Implementation of Reverse Mentoring. Advantages and Disadvantages of Reverse Mentoring.”
