We tend to think of learning a new skill or “going back to school” as something you’d do when looking to change careers, or to upgrade within your current one.
But lifelong learning has incredible benefits, both personal and professional, say researchers. It makes communities more productive and innovative, and gives employees the ability to cope with constantly changing workplaces. Lifelong learning helps us stay sharp as we age, and is also important for a successful economy.
It helps us communicate better, socialize more effectively, and achieve greater success.
