Achieving Australia As an Inclusive Learning Society: A Report on Future Directions for Lifelong Learning in Australia A brief report on a project commissioned by Adult Learning Australia (ALA) to investigate future directions for lifelong learning in Australia. This project involved a discussion paper released in December 2004, consultations in all states during March/April 2005, and a National Conversation on Lifelong Learning conducted through the ALA website. The key finding from the consultations and research was that lifelong learning is poorly understood in Australia, and that this acts as a barrier to concerted partnership action by all stakeholders in progressing opportunities for learning throughout From EdNA Online on October 19, 2005 at 10:30 p.m..
