This book opens up ways to engage critically with what counts as innovatory practice in lifelong learning today, locating its discussion of innovations in lifelong learning within an international and comparative framework. Innovations in Lifelong Learning engages first hand with issues and concerns from around the globe, offering an international perspective on current trends through its range of contributions from across the UK, Australia, New Zealand and the US. The broad focus allows for diverse information on the nature of these changes to come together under an assortment of empirical, theoretical and methodological approaches. The book takes three key elements of lifelong learning: learning communities participation and non-participation work-based learning and learning through work. It links these with themes on diversity, social justice and economic and global development so as to negotiate and re-negotiate the constant importance of innovation with employers, learners and educational institutions. All those working in the broad arena of lifelong learning will benefit from this comprehensive examination of current debates in the field, including policy-makers, researchers, teachers, lecturers, educational managers and employers engaged with work-based learning.

A volume in Research in Management Education and Development Series Editors: Charles Wankel, St. John's University and Robert DeFillippi, Suffolk University This volume covers cutting edge theory and cases in lifelong learning in both corporate and higher educational contexts. It includes studies of both prestigious world-class executive education and programs of regional universities. Analysis of the experience of innovative efforts to provide management education transcending normal degree program structures in both advanced nations and developing ones is provided. Partnering of corporate universities with traditional ones is discussed as a means of helping 21st century firms to develop management know-how to fit changing needs and opportunities. Executive education programs are presented as laboratories in which curriculum innovations integrating adult learning theory with professional development can be nurtured. How executive education programs can be designed to create learning communities that foster learning mindsets is described. One frame-breaking approach described is that of arts-based management learning as an expressive means to generate innovative and stimulating continuing management education experiences. Another chapter presents and explains best practices in leadership development are presented from a study of top firms. How the capacity for creative lifelong learning can be developed in undergraduates through embedded assessments is reported. A chapter reports on the efforts to support the European Council by constructing Europe-wide lifelong management learning and its provision to participants of a toolbox of ideas, concepts, models and methods that can be usefully used to promote lifelong learning.

Economic globalization, modern transportation, and advanced communication technologies have greatly enhanced the mobility of people across national boundaries. The resulting demographic, social, and cultural changes create new opportunities for development as well as new challenges for lifelong learning. Transnational Migration and Lifelong Learning examines the changing nature of lifelong learning in the current age of transnational migration. The book brings together international scholars from a range of countries in a dialogue about the relationship between work, learning, mobility, knowledge, and citizenship in the context of globalization and migration. It covers a wide range of topics, including: global perspectives and analyses of migration; the impact of migration on lifelong learning; processes of exclusion and inclusion in lifelong learning; the tension between mobility, knowledge, and recognition; and transnationalism, learning communities, and citizenship. This book was originally published as a special issue of the International Journal of Lifelong Education.

Information is now available almost instantaneously from multiple locations and diverse perspectives, through different tools and interoperable means, offering an onsite, online and mixed reality environment that facilitates learning more than ever before. Learning is a progression from knowledge acquisition, meaning and signification construction to transferable knowledge, signification, skills and competencies across fields and disciplines with local and global impact. The individual is free from space and time boundaries, flexible and interconnected and able to move without barriers within diverse teams and communities for personal or professional purposes. The 21st century Lifelong Learning program also involves the utilization of new methodologies as well as technologies to promote connectivity and intimacy; the environment needs to be useful and supportive for all. This collective construction of new knowledge, skills and competencies on a global, collective intelligence network, enables creative behaviors which influence everyone in close virtual or physical proximity. This book introduces a matrix of methods, tools and techniques referring to individual, team and wider social skills supporting the realization of ones dream. Individual, small team, social and community skills and actual competences, aided by the ever-present new and emerging technologies, enable and support every learner to expand and thrive on the Lifelong Learning life course.

Innovations in adult learning are a complex mix of pedagogy, technology, organisation, strategy and vision. In this book, 17 cases representing state-of-the-art design and practice from nine different countries are presented, grouped around the themes of I. Innovative Instrumentation. II. Innovations in Learner Collaboration and III. Innovations in Practice.While all of the cases deal with innovative instrumentation (software or combinations of software and communication technologies), the six cases in section I offer a detailed look at software packages designed for some aspect of the innovation of adult learning, such as reducing information overload by intelligent tools or using a World-Wide Web environment for communication and learning.In section II, a variety of ways to innovate adult learning through collaborative activities are described, including learning scenarios that make effective use of collaboration and the technology and instrumentation that make collaboration at a distance possible.Section III describes innovative learning situations that have been successfully integrated into broad scale field settings, each focusing on a particular situation in which innovative technologies play a part.
