Summary "Governmental, institutional and individual commitments to lifelong learning have brought changes in the meaning and significance of learning across the life course and new teaching and learning practices, as well as significant institutional change. The vision of the learning society that is unfolding is also highly contested. The Concepts and Practices of Lifelong Learning explores some of these contestations, meanings, practices and institutional changes." "This timely overview will be relevant to education and training professionals in all education sectors, education studies students and the general reader."--BOOK JACKET.
