Glossary of Adult Learning in Europe

  • August 1999

A glossary, regardless of which discipline it relates to, constitutes a tool linked to a precise historical period or a current of thought. This is particularly true for adult education. The fact that the first terminologies of the seventies are used today in compiling encyclopaedias, dictionaries, and glossaries is a sign of the times. In all the member-states of the European Union, adult education is leaving behind its image as an underestimated sector, under the care of well meaning people.
