No 18 (2020): Higher Education and Lifelong Learning

Nowadays, Higher Education, as the major educational field of promoting knowledge production and creating new knowledge, plays an important role towards the enhancement and the dissemination of the idea and the concept of lifelong learning within the institutions of Higher Education. Both the supranational and national organizations and institutional structures (UNESCO, OECD, European Union, Ministries of Education etc.) during the last two decades, have promoted the contribution of Higher Education in LLL (mainly via the integration of the LLL perspective in higher education institutions, curricula, learning processes and teaching methods). Undoubtedly, LLL is related to social inclusion, personal and social fulfillment, social cohesion and employability, while it can substantially contribute in the mitigation of socio-economic and educational inequalities. Given all the abovementioned, the existing and potential interface between HE and LLL is crystal clear and eventually explains the gradual of institutional and capacity building towards the further integration of LLL in HE. 

Nevertheless, the introduction of Lifelong Learning both as a concept and learning field within the era of Higher Education, undoubtedly has risen issues and (in some cases) concerns related to the gradual transformation of the regulatory and operational framework of the Higher Education Institutions. The increasing focus on the needs and demands of the labour market and the economy, could over-determine the Area of Higher Education, mainly via the increasing emphasis in Training, through the job- related LLL.
