As lifelong learning grows in popularity, few comprehensive pictures of the phenomenon have emerged. The Routledge International Handbook of Lifelong Learning provides a disciplined and complete overview of lifelong learning internationally.
The theoretical structure puts the learner at the centre and the book emanates from there, pointing to the social context beyond the learner.
Up-to-the-minute syntheses from many of the leading international experts in the field give vital snapshots of this rapidly evolving subject from wide-ranging perspectives including:
- learning throughout life
- sites of lifelong learning
- modes of learning
- social movements
- issues in lifelong learning
- geographical dimensions.
This authoritative volume, essential reading for academics in the field of Lifelong Learning, examines the complexities of the subject within a systematic global framework and places it in its socio-historic context.
