Launch of online lifelong learning portal for South-East Asia
The Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization Regional Centre for Lifelong Learning (SEAMEO CELLL) launched an online portal on 6 March 2017 to share good practice and disseminate relevant information related to lifelong learning in the region. The portal is part of a bigger project, ‘Towards an ASEAN Lifelong Learning Agenda’, launched in 2016 in partnership with the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) and the 11 SEAMEO Member Countries.
‘The chance to use a virtual collaboration tool and access information as part of the daily work of policy-makers will be a main driver for better informed policies and implementation,’ explained Arne Carlsen, Director of UIL.
The portal provides easy access to best practices, articles, studies, reports and statistics in the area of lifelong learning, thereby providing a base for informed decision-making and improving equity and quality in the development of policies and programmes. The portal also functions as a virtual space for discussions and mutual learning: through its forum, policy-makers, researchers, scholars, experts and practitioners can discuss current issues, theories and practices relevant to enhancing lifelong learning in South-East Asia.
The portal can be accessed at: www.SEA-LLLportal.org.
