Understanding Motivation for Lifelong Learning
Understanding the motivation to learn is increasingly recognised by policy makers and practitioners as the key to the creation of the Learning Age. However, despite many years of research in a number of fields, no comprehensive assessment of motivation for lifelong learning has existed until now. In addition to offering an impressive synthesis and development of existing research, this book maps the factors influencing motivation across the three spheres of workplace, home and community and also explores the practical implications of an understanding of motivation for policy. Required reading for all those involved in creating the learning age.
