About

Learning is more than ever important and valuable; people are encouraged to invest in their potential throughout their lives, taking into account their prior learning. According to policy papers all across the globe, this should concern all citizens, including the underrepresented groups and non-traditional learners with regard to higher education because everywhere ‘the learning society’ needs more higher-educated participation from all.  In this respect, it is vital to dynamise ‘the learning ground’ by transmitting both learning responsibilities as well as learning opportunities to all people, regardless of their background. In doing this, not only the learning by the people themselves is dynamised but also the functionality of higher education institutes, like universities, needs to be widened to be able to respond to the learning needs of all adult learners. These learning needs not only focus on qualifications and certification but also on valuing learning in itself as a motor for personal development and empowerment. This brings about a need for personalising learning since all learning in the context of the present ‘learning society’ always starts with the learner.
