eLearning Papers - A publication
In the context of economic globalization and development of
an information society, we observe, in all economic areas, a
recurring questioning of activities and employment associated to a
transformation of competences related to technological evolution, company
structure changes and an accelerated renewal of knowledge.
Consequently, lifelong learning becomes an essential method
for permanently adapting qualifications, with a view for individuals to engage
in learning and build a sustainable career and, in parallel, for
companies to find human resources needed within the framework of
the evolution of their activities. This issue of continuous adaptation of the
relationship between learning and employment generates heterogeneous
applications for training and a need for tools, both internal and external to
companies, which can satisfy individuals as well as the masses of applicants.
Lifelong learning needs to develop flexible learning tools that can be adapted to
each specific request (modularity, capitalizable units, shaping with various
types of training and of learners...), but also to develop integrated solutions (competence
assessment, skills and learning validation ...), in order to consider all formal,
informal and non-formal learning when assessing and following-up
Use of ICT is an essential contribution to the learning environment as
it places the individual in the midst of the training process while at the same
time creates real multi-actor learning communities and helps to
innovative and enriched pedagogy.
Employees' competence acquired in vocational and personal contexts is a
reference for company productivity evolution. With this in mind, it is
important to define qualifications in a broader sense than academic programmes.
Faced with this determining stake in terms of economic dynamism and social cohesion,
the eLearning papers invite contributions on the general subject "Training and
work" with a view to presenting reflections, innovating solutions and good
to be addressed
