Book Description

Since the concept of lifelong learning came to prominence much excellent work has been undertaken but, as Professor Longworth's new book shows, major change in some areas is still needed if the concept of learning from cradle to grave is to become a true reality. Using his unique vantage point from consulting with schools, universities, local, governmental and global authorities, Professor Longworth brings the development of lifelong learning bang up-to-date with a complete survey of the principles of lifelong learning including examples from around the world and crucial information on the impact of lifelong learning on 21st century schools.



Professor Norman Longworth is the world expert on lifelong learning. He is Vice President of the World Initiative on Lifelong Learning and Visiting Professor of Lifelong Learning at a number of academic institutions including Napier University, the University of Stirling, Toulouse Business School and Sheffield Hallam University. He has written widely on the topic including Lifelong Learning and Making Lifelong Learning Work (RoutledgeFalmer).


'Longworth's book is an outstanding one ... This one is especially valuable to read when you come from the "technological side" of educational technology and want to complete your knowledge with some background in the field of education.' Christoph Richter & Heidrun Allert, BJET
