Instructions for individual comparison
The starting point for your work on this comparative topic is the instruction for individual comparison. Please look at the documents below as a first step.
You can choose from two different instructions for individual comparison. Both have a slightly different approach to the topic of adult education and the sustainable development goals. Both give you a step-by-step introduction how to find a good comparative research question, give you a context for comparison and state some possible categories which you can elaborate on.
To work on the instruction for individual comparison, you can start with the following materials.
We selected the following materials to give you a good starting point for a comparative analysis on the topic of Lifelong Learning and the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development. These primary resources provide a first overview with the official knowledge platform by the United Nations and two critical papers by relevant international institutions on the role of adult education in the Agenda 2030.
