Beginning with a grant by the World Association for Co-operative and Work-integrated Education (WACE), the Waterloo Centre for the Advancement of Education (WatCACE) undertook an exploration of lifelong learning and its potential connection to co-operative education. A scale was developed and tested. The following presentations and publications resulted from this work.
Currently, we are developing this work further with the Accounting and Financial Management program at Waterloo with more development and testing of the scale and some thematic analysis of student work to look for evidence of lifelong learning.
