Local Administrative Districts Serving as Lifelong Learning Communities: A Case Study on the Zhabei Learning Community
Chang, Bo
Adult Learning, v21 n3-4 p27-33 Sum-Fall 2010
The learning community plays an important role in expanding lifelong learning ideas in social units such as cities, towns, and communities. Some European countries, Australia, Japan, Korea, and China are employing the idea of learning community to promote lifelong learning in local communities. In an effort to address recent social problems, China is engaged in building a harmonious society through many strategies, one of which is to develop a lifelong learning society composed of sub-social units such as learning cities, learning communities, learning towns, learning streets, and learning organizations and institutions. This case study describes how a local administrative district, the Zhabei Learning Community, serves as lifelong learning community in China. (Contains 1 figure and 1 table.)
