Adoption of Lifelong Learning Policies and Reterritorialization of Adult Education in East Asia
Choi, Seonjoo; Han, Soonghee
New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education, n162 p125-137 Sum 2019
This article, through the sketched history from the mid-1940s to current, presents the dynamics of adult education in East Asia traditionally called social education, that has survived after lifelong learning has been adopted, assimilated, and dominates the whole pattern of practice. This article argues that the soul of adult education has been unfading in the changing landscape of lifelong learning in East Asia.
