Temario

This European Masters in Lifelong Learning is created as a consequence of a growing significance of Lifelong Learning both in national and international policy and as regards the public, private and voluntary sectors and because of the need to bring its implications under close and critical scrutiny. It aims to provide policy-makers and professionals with responsibility for managing, delivering or supporting Lifelong Learning with opportunities to develop their own analysis and practice in what is a constantly changing economic, social, technological and policy environment. The Master in Lifelong Learning is also to be considered a response to a strong need for conducting educational reform activities, such as the Bologna and Copenhagen processes, all over the world and to the ensuing need for quality management of Lifelong Learning in terms of design, delivery, and recognition of prior learning (in accordance with the principles of the European Credit System for Lifelong Learning). Knowledge and understanding.
The Master seeks to explain the emergence of the concept of Lifelong Learning and its incorporation into national and transnational policies for educational and professional development; to analyze the theoretical and policy implications of Lifelong Learning, to identify the concepts of learning that inform current thinking about Lifelong Learning in a range of areas, and to stimulate participants to raise fundamental questions about the concept of Lifelong Learning, the contexts and the mode of its development. It also seeks to develop practitioners who can engage in small-scale research in the area of Lifelong Learning which will be of value in developing policy and professional practice.
Intellectual competences
Participants will develop the theoretical knowledge, concepts and practical skills to distinguish between and appraise different issues in and perspectives on Lifelong Learning, give critical considerations to the goals of Lifelong Learning and critique existing research, relate their professional concerns to the wider concern to foster Lifelong Learning, successfully write essays and to conduct small-scale research in an area of Lifelong Learning; work as a member of a community of learners and independently.
Practical competences.
The European Master in Lifelong Learning seeks to form professionals able to:
  • Design and develop educational policies concerned with Lifelong Learning.

First semester. Introductory modules.
For the students at the Institute of Education at the University of London (Policy strand):
  • Comparative education: theories and methods (15 ECTS)
    This module will introduce participants to the theory and practice of comparative education. It will review the historical development of the field and its relations with policy-making and other areas of comparative study; explore key concepts and theoretical frameworks used by comparativists, and develop understanding of the main methodological approaches to systematic comparative research. The use of comparative evidence by policy-makers and the process of policy-borrowing will be critically examined and the module will explore, through a range of case studies, how comparative analysis has contributed to the understanding of educational process and the relations between education and its social contexts.
  • Lifelong learning: theories and perspectives (15 ECTS)
    The purpose of this module is to analyze the concept of LLL from a theoretical, policy and practitioner standpoint. The module will consider critically the implications for LLL as a result of global economic and technological change; the emergence of the ?knowledge economy? and the changing relations between the state, private enterprise and the ?social partners? in market-based knowledge economies. A number of theoretical perspectives will be introduced, including human and social capital theory of informationalism, social epistemology, cultural-historical activity theory, and other perspectives on global post-modernity. The emerging research field of LLL constitutes the overarching perspective, providing a link between the general debates about knowledge and learning, the university in the context of LLL, the totality of learning environments for young and mature adults, including education institutions and the work-place as sites of learning-
