Lifelong Learning in Higher Education
Lifelong Learning in Higher Education examines how universities and colleges can prepare their students for lifelong learning - not just by means of continuing education and specialized courses for adults, but also through mainstream teaching programmes geared to traditional students.
Fully revised and published in paperback for the first time, the third edition of this well-known book blends theory with practice and traces the much misunderstood concept of lifelong learning back to its roots. The authors provide a critical overview of the way higher education institutions encourage students to become effective lifelong and life-wide learners. The book draws from a wide range of international sources, with a particular emphasis on educational goals, teaching methods, and organizational structures that foster lifelong learning.
This established and authoritative book will be essential reading for academics and educators alike, as well as educational managers, policy makers and indeed anyone with an interest in learning and the future of education.
