Abstract: The study defined lifelong learning. The study was needed because of the confusion and conflict existing in the literature and in programming which carries the label of lifelong learning. The methodology involved a critical analysis of the literature related to lifelong learning. From the analysis, criteria were developed which identified essential elements to be included in the definition. The criteria provided the standards on which the definition based. This study includes an up-to-date bibliography on lifelong learning, a review of current definitions for this field, and the development of criteria leading to a statement of the resulting definition. Implications for further research were suggested.
