Dear LLinE reader,
Lifelong Learning in Europe was born almost twenty years ago out of the need to create a journal that would bridge adult education science and practice, with researchers and practitioners publishing in dialogue.
The print issue did exactly that, for some sixteen years. Then, in 2012 LLinE shed its skin, becoming an online media, free of charge. We wanted to become a faster-moving and wider-reaching media, accessible to anyone interested in lifelong learning.
While online, LLinE started producing biweekly content in addition to thematic issues and began to offer more versatile journalistic content, in addition to the once dominant academic articles. At the same time we quadrupled our core readership and introduced LLinE to tens of thousands of new readers.
LLinE and InfoNet merge
Dear reader: a change is afoot again. For the past two years LLinE has created content together with InfoNet Adult Education, a network of adult education correspondents across Europe.
After this successful cooperation, LLinE and InfoNet now combine forces and form a completely new media, under a new name. The media will be the biggest in its field on the continent.
Its mission: to support the work of the European adult education professional through sharing of good practices, informing of recent events, trends and phenomena and giving in-depth insight into salient themes.
As a reader, you will get more out of the new magazine:
- with a correspondent in almost every European country, you will get an accurate and up-to-date picture at all times of adult education in Europe
- you will hear a broader variety of European voices in the magazine: educators, Advocates and NGO professionals, learners and scholars
- you can easily connect with the various AE organizations that form the magazine’s network
- you will find new content every two weeks, plus four thematic issues yearly!
We publish a a test issue in September to enable you, the reader, to give feedback. The launch of the new media takes place in December.
What’s the name of the new baby, you ask? Watch this space! We will announce it soon!
