Continuing Education - Lifelong Learning Market Predictions for 2012 To wrap up 2011 and tee things up for 2012, I reached out to a number of colleagues at associations, learning technology firms, and other consulting firms across the sector to get their predictions (things they think will happen) and wishes (things they think ought to happen) in association education in 2012.
