This chapter highlights several macro-changes in modern societies that suggest that education has become a lifelong process. Following Glen Elder, we conceptualize five principles which determine how education unfolds over the life course, and show that educational decisions, learning environments, and competence development constitute a complex and time-related interdependence over the life course. Finally, we present some new insights based on recent research that considers education as a lifelong process.
