Commission Staff Working Document: Lifelong Learning Practice and Indicators. Supporting Document to the Communication from the Commission Making a European Area of Lifelong Learning a Reality.
Commission of the European Communities, Brussels (Belgium). Directorate-General for Education and Culture.; Commission of the European Communities, Brussels (Belgium). Directorate-General for Employment and Social Affairs.
This document provides information relevant to the commission's communication on "Making a European Area of Lifelong Learning a Reality." Section 2 presents a selection of illustrative examples of lifelong learning in practice throughout Europe, grouped under these same priority areas used in the communication itself: valuing learning; information, guidance, and counseling; investing time and money in learning; bringing together learners and learning opportunities; basic skills; and innovative pedagogy. The examples show how various actors implement lifelong learning and explain what the priorities for action mean in concrete terms. Section 3 addresses (in greater detail than in the communication) these two important tools for delivering lifelong learning: learning organizations and local learning centers. Section 4 provides further information on the development of indicators that can be used for monitoring the implementation of lifelong learning throughout Europe. Monitoring indicators to be developed for each priority area are proposed and discussed. Appendixes include 8 references and 18 endnotes. (YLB)
