LIFELONG LEARNING AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ALICANTE: A GENERAL APPROACH

V. Carrasco-Embuena, M.J. Hernández-Amorós

University of Alicante (SPAIN)
Lifelong Learning (LLL) has been defined as all learning activity throughout life with the aim of improving knowledge, skills and personal, civic, social and vocational competences (Council of Europe, 2000). The importance of LLL and full integration to Higher Education has been raised from the Bologna Declaration and also, subsequently, discussed in various biennial meeting of Ministers responsible at UE.
In the current context, the LLL at Spanish universities offers a solid program, consistent and qualified in all areas of knowledge. Its handling may vary significantly an it depends on the strategy of each university. At the University of Alicante (UA) there is no specific Centre to manage their LLL opportunities. The offer is decentralised and distributed in several locations.
In this paper we provide the results of a study of the sources from which the actions of LLL at the UA emerge. We have analysed their features, their management models, its users, etc. Finally, we suggest some proposals to improve and capitalise the current offer of LLL.
