Lifelong, Life-Wide or Life Sentence?
Clark, Terry
Australian Journal of Adult Learning, v45 n1 p47-62 Apr 2005
This paper examines the life-wide dimensions of lifelong learning. Although the benefits of a life-wide approach to learning are well recognised, there appears to be little explicit attention given to the concept of life-wide learning in Australia. It is argued that recent pronouncements by the Australian Government about the challenges of an ageing population would be better informed by reference to lifelong learning that includes its life-wide dimensions, rather than continued concentration on formal learning.
