Adult Education and Lifelong Learning in Asia: Policy and Practice in Selected Countries
Blockcourse at the dates of 28./29. October and 20./21. January
Interest in a number of Asian countries has grown because of important political, economic, technological, and cultural developments which have influences on our daily life. Often Afghanistan, China, India, Korea, Singapore are mentioned, and travel routes frequently pass through Laos, Thailand, Vietnam or Usbekistan. A closer look shows an immense diversity between them, including their educational systems and approaches towards lifelong learning. Most of the countries have community based learning systems for youth and adults. Fortunately the extent of relevant materials and documents have grown in recent years, especially through important processes like Education for All or the Sustainable Development Goals, the cooperation between ASEAN and the EU via ASEM, or the larger comparative studies by OECD on PISA or PIAAC, or the CONFINTEA process by UNESCO.
Documents will be provided in advance, and presented in a diversity of forms via PPTs, reports, videos, by the lecturer as well as participants.
