Abstract

Self-directed learning is a buzz term that has been used within educational circles for some time now. An educator wants their students to fulfill their potential and work to the maximum of their abilities. As with younger students, the challenge with teaching adults is to encourage discipline and focus in studying and to develop a motivation for learning as opposed to simply seeking the answers. This book captures the frustrations involved in this pursuit and provides strategy and solutions for both educator and student alike. Using the three pillar model, the foundation for life-long, self-directed learning is clearly outlined and encouraged through a focus on skills, motivation and self-belief.

Abstract

The German pension system was the first formal pension system in the world, designed by Bismarck nearly 120 years ago. It has been very successful in providing high and reliable pension levels at reasonable contribution rates. While the generosity of the German pension system is considered a great social achievement, negative incentive effects of past reforms in the 1970s and 1980s and population aging are threatening the very core of the system. This has led to fundamental pension reforms since 1992. Based on a detailed simulation model of the German pension system, this book provides a thorough assessment of the system and its reforms. It shows that the latest reforms have put the system back onto a stable path and moved it from the old monolithic towards a multi-pillar system.
