    This study is intended to explore the characteristics and demands for lifelonglearning of 20s and 30s highschool graduates(work-to school) in order to draw outimplications for the creation of a social environment where these employees canachieve the right balance between work and learning. A total of 2,000 employeeswere surveyed online in order to analyze based on their work and learningexperiences; their results were contrasted with those from 1,000 employees withuniversity degrees. In the analysis stage, the research subjects were divided into three categoriesfor comparison: “employees with high school diplomas only,” “employees whoobtained university degrees after having worked,” and “employees who wentstraight into higher education after high school.”The group of employees who obtained higher education after having workedappeared to more open to learning than the other two groups. This trait can beexpected to translate into pursuit of self-development through education. Moreover,it seemed to be quite consistent whether they applied for jobs or soughton-the-job training at their workplaces. As they show the highest participationrate in programs for general competency-building personal interest, or liberal arts. they are thought to be enjoying various learning activities for self-development.

Data were collected from 28 college students whoparticipated a team project in a sampled class. Regression analyses suggested byBaron and Kenny were performed. The results indicated that team climate was asignificant predictor to team achievement and team learning satisfaction. Furthermore, team climate also had positive impacts on team-related sharedmental model and task-related shared mental model. Team-related shared mentalmodel played a mediation role in the relationship between team climate and teamachievement, and team climate and team learning satisfaction, whereas task-relatedshared mental model had a significant mediation effect between team climate andteam learning satisfaction only. Based on the results, implications for promotingteam project-based learning in colleges were discussed, and the future studieswere suggested.

    The purpose of this study was to explore constitutional foundations for the legislationon worker-initiated labor education in South Korea. Above all, Korean citizens have theright to pursue lifelong learning, based on the government’s obligation to promotelifelong education (clause 5, Article 31). Specifically, the right to lifelong learning meansthat the Korean citizens have the right to receive human and material (e.g., time, space,and finance) resources to pursue lifelong education from the government.
