The sub-division of a whole course into small units of learning. Each unit has a measurable value or recognised set of learning outcomes which can be expressed in ‘credits’ (see credit accumulation and transfer) towards a whole qualification.
jatkuva sisäänotto ja valmistuminen/nonstop-koulutus (I would propose "jatkuva opintotarjonta" for continuous provision of education)
Continuous provision which allows learners to start and finish learning programmes throughout the year, not one fixed year or term dates.
Education and training that responds to learners’ needs and preferences. Flexible learning offers learners choices about how, where and when they learn with the aim of supporting motivation and persistence particularly when attendance at a college or centre is difficult, e.g. rural learners; adults with multiple responsibilities or health problems. ICT-based communication between students and teacher is a common feature of flexible learning, but it can also include physical meetings between students and teachers.
The ongoing learning encouraged, and in some countries required, for teachers and other professionals working in adult learning.
