This book is a huge collaborative effort by academics from across Europe, who focus on enhancing the provision of high quality university continuing education (UCE) for the benefit of the Continent. This is a timely venture since many European universities are currently developing or expanding their continuing education to provide the diverse programmes needed by individuals, businesses and society generally in this rapidly changing world.
This reference work contains essential information for policy-makers at all levels, managers and other professionals working on continuing education in universities, academic staff working in education and their students throughout Europe. It addresses key aspects of UCE, which present new challenges for universities. It also gives an insight into a rich diversity of good practice and innovative developments that already exist in the field. This extensive material will be of value both to experienced practitioners and to those coming into this field. In the book, a European focus has been maintained.
