Abstract

Rolf Arnold is a renowned German professor of adult and vocational education. This chapter presents an analysis of Arnold’s systemic-constructivist perspective on selfdirected learning in comparison to international perspectives on self-directed learning and its facilitation in formal educational settings. Arnold’s thesis highlights that competence development must be considered from a holistic perspective. That is, educational experiences from birth may strongly shape one’s inclinations, preferences, and competencies in adult life. In order to facilitate the fostering of self-directed learning competence and in order to prepare learners for working and living in a modern world, it is discussed that an educational system needs to function holistically toward the goal of competence development across learners’ life course. Practical implications and further research directions are given.
