Teaching and Learning at a Regional Level: A Case Study of the Promotion of Change at the University of Debrecen
Kálmán, Anikó
Journal of Adult and Continuing Education, v10 n1 p66-76 May 2004
The year 1989 was a turning point in the history of Hungary. Many fundamental changes have since taken place in the country's teaching and learning at a regional level. This paper summarises the current problems of traditional university education in Hungary and then relates them to the roles of lifelong learning centres. After showing why these centres are needed, this paper describes their functions and means of support, either by the state or by other organisations. The position in the author's region and the role of the Lifelong Learning Centre in Debrecen are then described in more detail and the key issues that remain for the education of adults in Hungary are outlined.
