The papers in this collection contribute to the understanding of several aspects of lifelong learning. Two papers highlight the characteristics of reflection among teachers including self-evaluation and blogging. Two other papers study cooperation in lifelong learning--one, the impact of communities on professional learning among university lecturers, and the other, teacher-principal-parent partnerships in early childhood education. Universities offer a variety of courses and one paper analyses the impact on students of a course in educational psychology. The experience of dilemmas in history teaching is described in the next paper, and the reading habits of Estonian adolescents according to the PISA study are analysed in the final paper. This book contains the following: (1) Taimalu: Blogging and Self-Evaluations on the Use of Reflection in Teacher Education (Karmen Kalk, Piret Luik, and Taimalu, Merle); (2) Awareness of the Reflection Process Among Teachers from Two Estonian Counties (Liina Lepp, Marvi Remmik, and Elina Reva); (3) The Impact of Communities of Practice on University.
