Objectives and competences:
This course aims at introducing the basics of lifelong learning and their implications on the participants. The participants will develop a computer-based game that reveals the effects of different influences on an individual’s educational biography.
Intended learning outcomes:
Knowledge and understanding:

• aware of the existence of individual learning habits and can describe their implications for lifelong learning.
• able to describe the function of enabling competences in a concept of lifelong learning.
• able to describe the resulting consequences (of 3) to be derived for the organization of learning processes in a LLL approach in contrast to traditional educational concepts.
• able to argue for the need for different teaching styles for different target groups (e.g. adult vs. youth, hearing impaired vs. normal hearing).
• able to describe the potentials and limitations of technology-enhanced learning and online communication.
