Lunch seminar: Motivation to learn, age and welfare state regimes in Europe

Building on the authors' (Boeren & Holford) previous research on how motivation to participate in formal adult learning varies according to the various welfare regimes in Europe, this seminar explores the relationship between institutional environments and age-related variations in motivation to learn. The results are based partly on analysis of Adult Education Survey data, but chiefly on data drawn from a survey of 12,000 European adult learners.
