Transitions in Lifelong Learning

Tue 24 Apr 2012 11:35:00 AM EEST

The first issue of the year of LLinE journal is out now! Issue 1/2012 features the theme of Transitions in human life and the role of learning in them.

Highlights of the issue:

  • Adult learning is the weakest link in lifelong learning in Europe. What are the learning needs of ageing workers and how could EU policy help them?
  • Previously human resource development has largely ignored the personal life stages of the employee. A new model of HR harmonizes career development with life stages.
  • Empirical results of a Europe-wide study on the impact of non-formal adult education on social inclusion are out. Taking part in collective learning has a dramatically positive effect on the social inclusion of adults at risk of marginalization.
  • We have a special offer on this issue: 9 € (norm. 13 €) until 1st of June. The issue can be ordered from the LLinE website.

Lifelong Learning in Europe (LLinE) is a European journal of adult education and learning, established in 1996. LLinE is the only journal in its field in Europe that is directed at the whole of the education field, including policy-makers, the academic community and educators.
