Aims and Meaning of Life-wide Learning
Life-wide learning refers to student learning in real contexts and authentic settings. Such experiential learning enables students to achieve certain learning goals that are more difficult to attain through classroom learning alone. For instance, the development of problem solving skills in daily life, and certain positive attitudes towards the improvement of society and mankind in general requires contact with a lot of different people and a variety of environments and situations. The experiential learning acquired through life-wide learning helps students to achieve the aims of whole-person development and enables them to develop the life-long learning capabilities that are needed in our ever-changing society.
