Reflections on Lifelong Education and the School: Brief Papers and Notes Containing Some Thoughts on the Theory and Application of Lifelong Education as Seen in the Context of School Curriculum, Adult Education and Similar Areas.
Dave, R. H., Ed.
The document contains reflections on the concept of lifelong education. Toward a Model of Lifelong Education (Malcolm S. Knowles) proposes a role competency model based on the assumption that the purpose of education is the development of competencies for performing various human roles. Lifelong Learning and Our Schools (Karl-Heinz Flechsig) suggests that instructional socialization is one of the major aspects of schooling that should be taken into account inorder to achieve the aspirations of lifelong education. The Bridge Between Schooling and Adult Education (Paul H. Sheats) emphasizes the interaction between schooling and adult education along the temporal and spatial dimensions. Another dimension, the depth dimension, is discussed in The Inner Continuum (J. R. Kidd). Lifelong Education and Creativity (Michael Bogdan) views the creative aspect of education as the dialectic ability to surpass oneself. The historical and social contexts of lifelong education are discussed in Lifelong Integrated Education (Michiya Shimbori). On Learning Strategies for Lifelong Education (R. H. Dave) discusses styles for accomplishing the goals of lifelong education. R. H. Dave's list of concept characteristics of lifelong education with their implications for school curriculum and a 62-item annotated bibliography are included. (Author/EC)
