Learning “en passant”: The Forgotten Dimension
  • Jost Reischmann, Prof. Dr.

"Lifewide learning" is understood as a continuous life process, including formal as well as self-directed learning, but also unintentional learning, "learning en passant" (learning by passing by). Focusing on this type of learning seeks to broaden the understanding of learning and asks about the consequences for the theory and practice of Adult Education.
