HHE Glossary

Home and Hospital Education Glossary

Due to the fact that the terms related to home and hospital education vary a great deal in different contexts and countries, and that even in English there are different names to refer to similar practices (home tuition, domiciliary learning…) a common glossary is needed to ensure effective communication of the HHE themes.
Therefore the LeHo network developed a full glossary which is available in draft format. It is still under review by the LeHo Board of Experts.
