Routes or cul-de-sacs
What assists learner progression?
Tuesday 20 May 2003
Learner progression is often promoted as a desirable aim, but what does the term progression actually mean?
In policy documents it usually means movement in a linear upward direction to a higher-level course or programme of study. But adult learning pathways are characterised by diversity and many learners choose, for a number of reasons, to stay in courses or programmes at the same level, or to move backwards from formal to non-formal learning.
The conference will have input from researchers who have explored these questions and practitioners who have developed programmes and procedures to assist learners shift between different courses, learning levels and learning environments.
