Lifelong Learning: Research Meets Practice

Webinar series launch on 23rd of May 2024.

The Lifelong Learning Platform (LLLP), in cooperation with Springer’s International Handbook of Lifelong Learning and EPALE, launches a new series of webinars. Presenting cutting-edge research on lifelong learning to an interested audience.

In a compact format of just one hour, individual research findings and critical reflections on burning issues, such as the ecology of lifelong-life-wide learning for sustainable generative futures or learning for climate justice will be presented and discussed in the focus of social/political and the economic context.

However, particular topics of participation and performance will also be addressed in the scope of learning ecosystems to resonate policy and practice with emerging dimensions of sustainable futures in lifelong learning. We intend to support advanced understanding, reasoning and reflections upon lifelong learning with quality measures in the frame of discussion highlighting problems, and challenges, but also to signal choices and limitations for inclusive, equitable realities.

In order to represent quality concerns, the webinar-series will be formed by a Programme Committee of distinguished policy and research specialists and scholars in lifelong learning with various research orientations and practical experience.

The webinar takes place twice a semester, is free of charge and open to the entire EPALE community.

In case you are interested, please register at this link for our webinar.

The launch will include a talk with the main editor of the handbook in addition to research keynote.
