LLL-transfer: Lifelong Learning

Added by Cindy Eggs over 3 years ago

“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.”

What Henry Ford said in the early 20s has finally also penetrated the European and Swiss educational landscape. There are initiatives to operationalize this theoretical concept and still a lot of planned actions for its implementation.

The state-of-the-art analysis of Lifelong Learning at Swiss Higher Education Institutions (HEI) has shown that themes like Recognition of Prior Learning, Openness of HEIs and flexibility have become very relevant in order to open the floor to new target groups.

The webinar presents the results of the LLL-analysis and gives practical support for the promotion and implementation of LLL at Swiss HEIs. For that reason the webinar contains not only a presentation of the state-of-the-art and future scenarios, but also a demonstration of the modified LLL-transfer-tool which has been developed by the Swiss Distance University of Applied Sciences (Cindy Eggs and Willi Bernhard, FFHS) and the University of Geneva (Suzanne De Jonckheere and Bineta Ndiaye, UNIGE) within the Learning Infrastructure Project.
