About Prolearn

PROLEARNs goal is to achieve a greater focus on questions of European importance and a better integration of research efforts. Therefore PROLEARN will initiate and improve cooperations between various actors of academia and industry in the area of technology enhanced learning.

The project will particularly support multinational co-operation and will therefore form a new understanding of an open network within the research community.


In the context of PROLEARN we refer to the term "Professional Learning” as any form of learning in and for the professional life of a citizen including respective individual as well as organisational aspects of employers and employees.

Future professions – in the more general sense of occupation – are changing rapidly with regard to their specialised knowledge, skills and required competences. Technology has been a strong driver for shaping these societal and organisational changes and serves as the transport mechanism to enable a personalized learning experience with an integration of learning and business processes. Therefore, PROLEARN’s approach to support professional learning is characterised by the assumption that professional lives are changing continuously and require specific knowledge, skills and competences for a certain environment and in a certain context. PROLEARN assumes that the process of lifelong learning takes place in the workplace setting acknowledging the fact that the scope of respective learning arrangements is overarching from formal, informal and non formal to academic settings and vocational training environments.

What is your understanding of Professional Learning? Join the community and shape the term!
