Universities and Engagement is a timely and insightful book that examines what universities can contribute to their communities and economies through lifelong learning, a topic which is of increasing importance to Higher Education Institutions across the world.

The book will offer an answer to the question ‘What can be understood by University Lifelong Learning today?’ by collating the work of specialists from across Europe and beyond who have first-hand experience in the field of university engagement through continuing education. With a diverse range of expertise from the UK, Ireland, Germany, Finland, Malta, Belgium, New Zealand, Austria and the USA, readers are guaranteed a varied and informative collection of perspectives on this important topic.

Taken as a whole, the book provides a theoretical background for readers, drawing on recent research and practice examples from a variety of countries and institutional settings, as well as demonstrating a variety of conceptual approaches, confirming the diverse range of possible solutions. Key topics covered include:

    • research into policy and practice;
    • engaging with business and industry;
    • engaging with communities;
    • engaging with an ageing society;
    • active citizenship and regional competitiveness.

Developed in collaboration with the European University Continuing Education Network (EUCEN), Universities and Engagement is an invaluable contribution to research in the subject of lifelong learning. It will be of value to academics, practitioners and professionals with an interest in higher education and community management, and will be particularly suited to those interested in lifelong learning, adult education and community development.

Review:

" 'Universities and Engagement' is an invaluable contribution to the wide and diverse field of lifelong learning. Moreover, this book will be a very useful source to all those professionally, politically or intellectually concerned with the role of HEIs in promoting lifelong learning, opening up HEIs to adults and older learners, encouraging learning in disadvantaged communities and countering extant regressive narratives around higher education learning which assume such learning as the preserve of certain age groups, certain communities and certain sections of the social class structure." - Dr Erik Cownie, The Adult Learner 

"This book is both timely and informative in terms of its educational value, particularly in light of the global trends in shifting demographics [...] 'Universities and engagement: International perspectives on higher education and lifelong learning' will be of particular interest to ULLL students, instructors, university administrators and marketing strategists." - Daniel H. Jarvis, International Review of Education
