Significant lifelong learning : a framework for preparing future-ready graduates in the age of uncertainty

Student learning has predominantly been debated based on the cognitive knowledge and skills acquired. More recently, scholars have examined the concept of a deeper, more holistic learning, i.e., significant learning where learning stimulates further learning to, subsequently, create lifelong learners. This conceptual paper aims to examine how significant learning has been discussed in the past to create a framework for the future-ready graduate which educational developers can use to reimagine student learning outcomes aligned to critical interactions of the learning experience. The proposed framework is referred to as Significant Lifelong Learning and can be applied to traditional or any variation of online learning environments.


Note: Due to the spread of the COVID-19 virus across the globe, the ICED 2020 conference planning committee and the ICED Board were regrettably forced to cancel the ICED 2020 conference due to take place in Zurich in June. However: Despite cancellation, the organisers and the ICED Board decided to publish a conference proceedings. All accepted presenters and student ambassadors have been invited to contribute to these proceedings.
