This concluding chapter draws on many of the chapters in the Handbook to examine four trends: the need for continuous learning in light of economic changes, learning challenges for older workers, concern about the readiness of students to enter the workforce and remain productive, technological and cultural changes, and the increasing importance of experiential and active, self-regulated learning. The chapter concludes with a forecast of directions for lifelong learning.
