Diagnosis and analysis


Developing integrated system of lifelong learning

1. How do we effectively embrace lifelong learning as the master concept and guiding principle in the development and reform of general education?

2. How do we provide opportunities of lifelong learning for all? What evidence do we have for effective uptake of these opportunities?

3. Where is the evidence of equity of these opportunities? What policy has been developed and implemented to ensure that there will be no exclusion in the opportunity for learning?

4. Does the education system support flexible learning pathways which enable each learner to choose his/her learning path more freely (See: Learning Continuum)? In that way have the artificial barriers between different educational disciplines, courses and levels, and between formal and non-formal learning been abolished, and informal learning has been supported and integrated?

5. In what way do we assess and monitor the progress our country has made in lifelong learning? (See: Composite Learning Index

Horizontal integration

1. What mechanisms do we have for ensuring mutual reinforcement, transition and even seamlessness across diverse learning pathways? Where is the evidence of this mutual reinforcement, smooth transition and seamlessness?

2. What mechanism has been developed to create links and build synergies between learning taking place in formal and non-formal settings? How effective are the mechanisms in terms of recognizing competencies acquired in non-formal and/or informal means and settings?

3. What mechanisms have been developed to promote learning in a plurality of learning spaces covering life-wide contexts across family, school, workplace, cultural and community settings? What is the evidence of equitable benefit from learning opportunities in these varied learning settings?

4. In what way do diverse institutions and channels (museums, libraries, parks, recreational places, cultural organisations, and faith-based organizations, media and ICTs) play role in facilitating lifelong learning?

5. What are the major barriers to lifelong learners and what targeted policy measures have been adopted to overcome them? Is there evidence that these targeted measures have been effective?

Developing enabling learning environments

1. What measures are being taken by villages, communities, cities and regions in our country to encourage individual citizens to become lifelong learners? What are the lessons learned from those efforts?

2. What mandate have media received from the government to play a major role in informing on and opening up learning opportunities? What policy and strategies have been developed and implemented in exploiting the potential of media in providing lifelong learning opportunities? What is the evidence that media is playing that role?

3. What specific measures have been taken in ensuring the quality of open and distance learning? How effective are those measures? Have ICT been effectively integrated into formal, non-formal education and informal learning?

4. What activities and programmes such as learners’ weeks and learning festivals have been organized to motivate and mobilize learners or potential learners? How effective are these programmes and activities?
