    Lifelong Learning in Europe (LLinE)

Of particular interest is an article 'Competencies in later life' in which German researchers extend PIAAC methodology to a further study, CiLL, which assesses the skills of seniors aged 66-80.

  • LLine 2014 - issue 3/2014

    Lifelong Learning in Europe (LLinE)

It asks what the future global development agenda means for adult education and Europe. The theme is approached with three basic questions: what does the post-2015 mean for adult education, what does it mean for Europe and, finally, how best to make sense of the essential aspects of the process in the face of the bewildering amount of information.
