Book excerpt: Economic globalization, modern transportation, and advanced communication technologies have greatly enhanced the mobility of people across national boundaries. The resulting demographic, social, and cultural changes create new opportunities for development as well as new challenges for lifelong learning. Transnational Migration and Lifelong Learning examines the changing nature of lifelong learning in the current age of transnational migration. The book brings together international scholars from a range of countries in a dialogue about the relationship between work, learning, mobility, knowledge, and citizenship in the context of globalization and migration. It covers a wide range of topics, including: global perspectives and analyses of migration; the impact of migration on lifelong learning; processes of exclusion and inclusion in lifelong learning; the tension between mobility, knowledge, and recognition; and transnationalism, learning communities, and citizenship.

This book was released on 2020-07-29 with total page 124 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Decolonising Lifelong Learning in the Age of Transnational Migration examines how colonialism has shaped migration and migrants’ transnational learning experiences. With the development of modern transportation and advanced communication technologies, migration has shifted from international to transnational, characterised by the multiple and circular migration across transnational spaces of migrants who maintain close contact with their country of origin. The book interrogates the colonial assumptions and Eurocentric tendencies influencing the current ideological moorings of lifelong learning theories, policies, and practices in the age of transnational migration. It calls for an approach to lifelong learning that aims to decolonise the ideological underpinnings of colonial relations of rule, especially in terms of its racialised privileging of ‘whiteness’ and Eurocentrism as normative processes of knowledge accumulation. This volume cover a wide range of topics, including: • Theorising decolonisation in lifelong learning and transnational migration • Decolonising racism, sexism, and settler colonialism • Decolonising knowledge production and recognition • Decolonising the life course • Decolonising lifelong learning policies • Decolonising pedagogic and curricular approaches to lifelong learning Overall, the chapters represent the collective efforts of the contributors in attempting to decolonise lifelong learning in the age of transnational migration. This book was originally published as a special issue of the International Journal of Lifelong Education.

This book was released on 2017-10-10 with total page 1061 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This Handbook provides a wide-ranging frame of reference for researching adult and lifelong education and learning. With contributions from scores of established and newer scholars from six continents, the volume covers a diverse range of geopolitical and social territories across the world. Drawing on the multiple heritages that underpin research on education and learning in adulthood, this Handbook addresses the inner tensions between adult education, adult learning, lifelong education, and lifelong learning, by using current research and theorizations from disciplinary backgrounds, including philosophy, psychology, biology and neuroscience, anthropology, sociology, history, political science, and economics. It provides an explicit discussion of the differences and tensions between adult and lifelong education and learning, and locates these in different policy and historical contexts, theories and practices. It explores a variety of discipline-based theoretical perspectives, and highlights how these have influenced, and been influenced by, research in the education and learning of adults. The Handbook also explores the inevitable frictions and dilemmas these present, and carefully examines the role of the international dimension in researching education and learning in formal, non-formal and informal contexts, beyond traditional schooling. This state-of-the-art, comprehensive Handbook is the first of its kind to explore adult education, lifelong education and lifelong learning fully as distinct activities on an international scale. It will be an indispensable reference resource for students of education at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and for academic researchers, professionals and policy-makers concerned with adult and community education, further and vocational education, or work-based training and human resource development.

Download or read book Work, Learning and Transnational Migration written by Shibao Guo and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2018-02-02 with total page 164 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: As the globalisation of migration intensifies, many countries have joined the international competition for the most talented, skilful, and resourceful workers. More recently, migration has shifted from international to transnational, characterised by its multiple and circular flows across transnational spaces rather than singular or unidirectional movement. When transnational migrants arrive in a new country, many of them face multifaceted barriers when it comes to transitioning into work and learning in the host society. Work, Learning and Transnational Migration examines the non-linear transition of work and learning for transnational migrants; the multiple barriers facing migrants in the process of transition; tensions between mobility, knowledge, and recognition; issues of language, power, and transnational identity; and how socio-cultural differences have been used to entrench social inequality in migrants’ transition. The rich international contexts and global perspectives provided across all chapters enrich our understanding about the changing nature of work and learning in the age of transnational migration. This book was originally published as a special issue of Globalisation, Societies and Education.

Summary Book Review Migration & Integration by Gudrun Biffl:

Download or read book Migration & Integration written by Gudrun Biffl and published by omninum KG. This book was released on 2010 with total page 228 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: 'Migrationen prägen unsere Welt. Sie sind ein integraler Bestandteil der internationalen wirtschaftlichen Integration und tragen zur Erhaltung der Wettbewerbsfähigkeit unserer Wirtschaft bei. In diesem Sinne fördern sie den Erhalt der Wohlfahrt unserer Gesellschaft. Sie haben aber auch einen Einfluss auf unsere Lebensweisen, da Migranten und Migrantinnen zum Teil fremde Kulturen, Sprachen und Traditionen mitbringen. Das wird von vielen als Bereicherung gesehen, von manchen aber als befremdend und verunsichernd gewertet. Um den sozialen Zusammenhalt zu fördern, ist es daher notwendig, in einen Dialog zwischen Einheimischen und Zugewanderten einzutreten. Dieser Dialog kann nicht den einzelnen Individuen allein überantwortet werden, sondern bedarf der strukturierten und institutionalisierten Unterstützung durch Politik, Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft und ihre institutionellen Vertretungen. Das Dialogforum des Departments für Migration und Globalisierung an der Donau-Universität Krems will zu diesem Dialog beitragen. In einer mehrtägigen Tagung treten Vertreter/-innen der Wissenschaft und Forschung in einen Dialog mit politischen Entscheidungsträgern und Entscheidungsträgerinnen, NGOs und Praktikern sowie Praktikerinnen. Es werden strategische institutionelle Weichenstellungen diskutiert, die dem friedlichen Zusammenleben förderlich sind und die sicherstellen, dass die Ressourcen der Zugewanderten und der Einheimischen besser genutzt werden und dass sich ihre Fähigkeiten und Potenziale entfalten können. Der vorliegende Sammelband bringt eine Auswahl der Beiträge des ersten und zweiten Dialogforums, die im August 2009 und 2010 im Schloss Orth in Gmunden stattgefunden haben. Die Themen, die im Dialogforum angesprochen wurden, reichen von der Bildungs- und Beschäftigungspolitik über die industriellen Arbeitsbeziehungen, die religiöse Vielfalt im Zusammenhang mit der Gleichbehandlung der Geschlechter, regionale Integrationsthemen, den Menschenhandel und das Asylwesen. Da die Beiträge von verschiedenen Autoren und Autorinnen geschrieben wurden, ist der gendergerechten Sprache und ihrer Verschriftlichung auf unterschiedliche Art und Weise Rechnung getragen worden. Es wurde von einer Vereinheitlichung Abstand genommen, um auch hier der Vielfalt Raum zu geben.' --

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book explores the unstudied nature of diaspora among young Korean, Japanese and Chinese women living and studying in the West. Why do women move? What are the actual conditions of their transnational lives? How do they make sense of their transnational lives through the experience of the media? Are they becoming cosmopolitan subjects? Exploring the key questions within their particular socio-economic and cultural contexts, this book analyzes the contradictions of cosmopolitan identity formation and challenges the general assumptions of cosmopolitanism. It considers the highly visible, fastest growing, yet little studied phenomenon of women’s transnational migration and the role of the media in everyday life, offering detailed empirical data on the nature of the women’s diaspora. Drawing on a wide range of perspectives from media and communications, sociology, cultural studies and anthropology, the book provides an empirically grounded and theoretically insightful investigation into this evolving phenomenon.

Summary Book Review International Migration and Knowledge by Allan Williams:

Download or read book International Migration and Knowledge written by Allan Williams and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2014-06-03 with total page 240 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Two unconnected but important recent academic and policy debates have focussed on the idea of the knowledge-based economy and the economic consequences of increasing international migration. This book challenges pre-conceived views on the debates and argues the need to understand that all migrants are potentially knowledge carriers and learners, and that they play an essential role in the globalization of knowledge transactions. Deconstructing the concept of knowledge, and demonstrating how tacit knowledge is in fact an amalgam of encultured and embrained/embodied forms of knowledge this book considers how international migration has profound consequences, analysed, first, in terms of the economic and immigration strategies of national and regional bodies. And, secondly, the authors explore how the ‘diversity dividend’ of migration is captured by firms through their management strategies, and by individuals through increasingly boundaryless careers, continuous learning and transnational working lives. This research is a highly original contribution which provides the first overview of one of the most dynamic forces for change in the globalising economy. It will challenge migration researchers and students to engage with the management and learning literatures, and it will challenge management and economic policy analysts to think through the role of international migration. As such it will contribute to teaching and research in a range of social science disciplines, as well as to those involved in policy arenas ensuring that firms and all migrants engage in mutual learning and knowledge sharing.

Download or read book Inequality, Innovation and Reform in Higher Education written by Maria Slowey and published by Springer Nature. This book was released on 2020-04-10 with total page 330 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: An important backdrop to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals involves consideration of the impact of a ‘new demographics’ derived from the interaction of two global developments. First, high levels of internal and cross-border mass migration, stimulated by climate change, violence and disparities in wealth and social stability within and between different countries and the global South and North. Second, the phenomenon of increasing longevity and rapidly ageing populations, especially in the developed world. This book explores the central role that socially engaged higher education might potentially play in helping address these challenges, enhancing lifelong learning opportunities and facilitating more positive outcomes for both individuals and societies. The contributors to this book are scholars of higher education and lifelong learning based in twelve countries from Europe (Germany, Ireland, Slovenia, Sweden and the United Kingdom), the Americas (Brazil, Canada, Mexico and the USA), Japan, Australia and New Zealand. “This is an extremely timely and important collection focusing on growing migration and an increase in ageing populations, two major social trends that researchers in higher education often overlook. The multi-level analysis of the role that higher education can play, together with the contributions from 12 countries in the North and South make this one of the most outstanding collections on these themes.” Rajani Naidoo, Director, International Centre for HE Management, University of Bath. “Auguste Comte famously observed that demography is destiny. This superb volume examines the powerful impact of two global demographic trends, and the vital role universities can play in responding to them. The book describes a range of innovative and pragmatic responses, while deepening our understanding of why serving these populations it so important for the health of our communities and our democracies.” Matthew Hartley, Professor and Associate Dean, GSE, University of Pennsylvania. “The powerful synergy of the longevity revolution and the technology revolution necessitates a corresponding education revolution. It is clear that the educational assets acquired in youth and early adulthood no longer provide sufficient currency for longer, big change impacted lives. This timely book examines the benefits of creating an inclusive, rights-based culture of learning at every stage of life.” Alexandre Kalache, Co-President, International Longevity Centre (ILC) Global Alliance and ILC Brazil. “How can we understand the current dynamics of migrations and demographic trends to adapt HE access policies accordingly? By bringing together empirical research in different countries, this book offers an essential insight on this very sensitive issue for both individuals and their societies. A must read for researchers and policy makers.” Gaële Goastellec, Professor of Sociology, University of Lausanne, Chair of the Consortium of Higher Education Researchers. “The contributions cover an admirably wide range of countries, shedding different lights on these common themes. The book sets a challenging and informed agenda which policy-makers and institutional leaders would do well to take seriously.” Tom Schuller, Formerly Head of the Centre for Educational Research and Innovation, OECD.

Book excerpt: "This report presents the detailed findings of the 2003 Lifelong Learning Eurobarometer, which covers 15 EU Member states, Iceland and Norway. It focuses on Europian [sic] citizens' attitudes to and participating in adult learning of all kinds, paying special attention to learning related to work, employment and career but setting this family in an integrated approach to education and training throughout life. This is the first time that comparative information on lifelong learning from citizens' own standpoint has become available, which makes the data a base reference point for the future studies and analysis. The report focuses on three themes: skills for a knowledge society; the diversity of learning contexts; and the participation in and motivation for learning"--Back cover.
