The project seeks to develop Lifelong Learning as a collaborative project through formal and informal networks. Partners are mapping a profile of lifelong learning activities and networks in Palestine through benchmarking and community assessment to identify opportunities, struggles and supports. Seminars and workshops will develop pedagogic partnerships in different settings, facilitating a wide arrangement of adult learning across Palestinian society.
The Palestinian universities in the project are the University of Birzeit, Islamic University of Gaza, University of Al Quds and University of Bethlehem and the non-university partners of Centre for Applied Research in Education (CARE), and the Women Graduates of the Islamic University of Gaza. European Partners are the University of Glasgow, National University of Ireland Maynooth and St Mary's University College London.
LLIP is the ﬁrst ‘joint project’ of Tempus on the West Bank and Gaza that focuses on Lifelong Learning as a national system in Palestine.
It introduces a systematic approach across the Palestinian territories, encouraging a more networked way of thinking about different arrangements of Palestinian education and supporting Palestinian communities.
