In its general sense it is a form of learning in which the knowledge, skills, and habits of a group of people are transferred from one generation to the next through teaching, training, or research. Education frequently takes place under the guidance of others, but may also be autodidactic. Any experiences that have a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered educational. Education is commonly divided into stages such as preschool, primary school, secondary school and then college, university or apprenticeship.
Why a glossary?
Due to the fact that the terms related to home and hospital education vary a lot in different contexts and countries, and that in English too there are several different names to refer to similar practices (home tuition, domiciliary learning…) as a basis to ensure an effective communication on the HHE themes, a common glossary is needed.
Therefore the LeHo network developed this one you can find here as a draft. It is till under the reviewing process by LeHo Board of Experts.
