Learning lives: learning, identity and agency in the life course
01 Jul 2008
The ambition of the Learning Lives project was to investigate what learning means and does in the lives of adults. Over a three-year period we conducted more than 500 interviews with about 120 adults aged 25-84. In addition we analysed data from the British Household Panel Survey, an annual survey of about 5,500 UK households. The Learning Lives project took a biographical approach, focusing on individual adults and their learning biographies and trajectories.
