Abstract

Informed by professional practice, practitioner research represents an important contribution to public discourse and research and development in many fields. This paper presents a practitioner-based overview of lifelong learning in Australia, its historical roots, development within public policy, relationship to various skills frameworks, the impact of emergent agendas such as Industry 4.0 and the recalibration of systems following the worldwide disruption of Covid-19. With disruption comes opportunity and a critical feature of lifelong learning in emerging futures is the role of digital technology in enabling it, and perhaps in transforming how lifelong learning will soon be understood.
