The study of lifelong education brings to light aspects of education which go beyond the purely intellectual sphere into all dimensions of being.These dimensions assume great importance for individuals seeking to develop capacities which will enable them to cope successfully with the challenges they will confront throughout life and to participate constructively in the larger processes of development. The subjects covered include communication, corporal man, time, space, art, man as citizen, the ethical domain, technology and the scientific spirit, and from these papers emerges the unifying theme of the interrelationship between morality and technology. This relationship poses the vital question of how individuals should decide which of the new technologies that proliferate in contemporary society is likely to be beneficial to humankind and which destructive. The book is the result of a collective project undertaken by the Unesco Institute of Education (UIE). The approach adopted is new in two respects: first, each theme is treated in terms of learning, and second, each is related to the others in a global and transdisciplinary view of personal development. It is written by experts from various countries who are known internationally for their outstanding contributions to research into the problems of learning as a basis for lifelong education, and will be important reading for all those involved in the study and practice of lifelong education.

The basic aim of this special issue is to focus on the profound change of tendency in education that is taking place at both the national and interna tional level. At a time when education and lifelong learning are increasingly merging into one process, it is important to examine the ways in which edu cational policies and practices are evolving. Consequently, we invited a variety of contributors, both men and women, coming from different regions and encompassing both research and practice, to identify significant phenomena and trends that are indicative of the ways in which systems of education are responding to new social and cultural demands. We asked our contributors to show how educational reality in different countries is no longer confined within the temporal and spatial limits of institutional education, to indicate how models of educational practice are changing, to examine the extent to which the traditional cycles of human life are shifting their boundaries, and to describe how these changes are mani festing themselves in different national contexts in both South and North. We also asked our authors to pose questions raised by this educational revolution. We have included 17 contributions, some of the authors analysing par ticular national situations, others drawing questions and observations from their own experiences or taking a searching look at education from the perspective of a practical involvement in social iSl>ues or from a background of research into popular arts and traditions.

Towards a System of Lifelong Education: Some Practical Considerations focuses on the need to create a sound system of lifelong education, taking into consideration the processes, conditions, and factors involved. The book starts by defining lifelong education; how learning is done throughout an individual’s lifetime; and the relationship of lifelong education with educational practices and services. These topics are followed by the discussion of ideologies of lifelong education; the implementation of educational policies; and the methodologies involved in education practices. The book discusses as well the legislation related to lifelong education. The role of government, institutions, and international cooperation in promoting lifelong education is then highlighted. The book ends by stressing the role of educational administration in the advancement of lifelong education. This topic covers the relationship of bureaucracy and education; the complexity of the process of administration; and the problems that arise. The alternative financing arrangement for lifelong education is also emphasized. This selection is valuable to those who are interested in conducting studies on lifelong education, particularly how it is planned, implemented, and assessed.

Curriculum Evaluation for Lifelong Education describes the procedures, results, and implications of a two-year effort by research teams from Japan, Romania, and Sweden to develop and utilize a set of criteria for evaluating school curricula. The research summarized in this book is a step toward the concretization of the principles of lifelong education, which seeks to isolate the salient characteristics of a curriculum that incorporates the principles of lifelong education and to describe several procedures for applying the resulting criteria to written and operational curricula. This compilation draws heavily on the work of the cooperating teams who, after an initial joint planning conference, developed their own versions of the lifelong education criteria and in various ways applied those criteria to their own national curricula. This book is a good reference for school and institute administrators aiming to acquire knowledge on the principles of lifelong education.
