oa Journal of Education - Adult learning within lifelong learning: a different lens, a different light

Volume 39, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0259-479X



Adult learning is located within a lifelong learning framework both as a lens for looking back and for projecting forward. The competing views of adult and lifelong learning are discussed and a preliminary overview of what has been achieved within adult learning in the last 10 years in South Africa is given.
