Conclusion and looking forward


Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapters


This concluding chapter is divided into two parts. Part I summarises the function of each of the book’s five sections and the contribution each section makes to the conversation around Free Learning. It then discusses how the separate chapters each contribute to their own section. Part I is not merely descriptive, summarising for the reader the content of the chapter, but also comments on and evaluates the content of each chapter, including areas about which agreement is usually reached, other areas where possible disagreement and controversy have emerged and the chapter’s contribution to the book.
Part II complements Part I by providing a perspective on what the future might hold for the growing acceptance and adoption of Free Learning. It discusses future research possibilities and other issues, including the dangers that innovations may be susceptible to when they become more universally accepted. It includes a further discussion of what Free Learning is not. Copyright © 2022 selection and editorial matter, Ross Parker, David Coniam and Peter Falvey; individual chapters, the contributors.
