Patterns of learning by Cyril O Houle( Book )

14 editions published between 1984 and 1988 in English and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Basic methods of learning, most of which have been used through centuries of recorded thought, are discussed, along with learning as a lifelong process, and ways to enhance and diversify modern education. Numerous learning processes are studied by examining the lives of great individuals who have exemplified innovative and multifaceted approaches to education. These individuals, Michel de Montaigne, Alexander Pope, Henry David Thoreau, and Billy Graham, used reading, travel, self-directed study, discussion groups, direct observation, and other forms of learning to enrich their own lives and lives of others. Florence, a center of culture that people have visited to learn, is also discussed. The growth of a formal educational system in the nineteenth century is considered, with attention to Edward Everett's efforts to establish systems of high-quality education for people of all ages. Also considered is the work of William Osler, a Canadian physician, who sought to promote both didactic and practical continuing education for doctors in the United States and England. A historical review of traditional conceptions and varied methods of adult education is included. Finally, implications for education are discussed. (Sw)
The literature of adult education : a bibliographic essay by Cyril O Houle( Book )

12 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Cyril O. Houle presents an up-to-date, comprehensive examination of the nature and scope of the vast literature on adult education - and includes the historical perspective and interpretation necessary to understand the links between the diverse and seemingly separate aspects of the field. In a single volume, he describes over twelve hundred books, tracing the development of basic theories and practices and identifying major accomplishments." "Houle explores the full range of publications on adult education - from those focused on the field's theoretical underpinnings to works on specific adult learning programs - to uncover the unique values and missions at the heart of adult education. He provides a valuable tool for locating information, grasping the field as a whole, and understanding emerging challenges in adult education." "The Literature of Adult Education can help teachers, trainers, administrators, counselors, and scholars in all areas of adult education find the sources of information and guidance they need to strengthen their own practice. Houle shows how all contributions to the literature of adult education have helped define the field and pave the way for lifelong learning. He describes, for instance, books dealing with the fundamental issues of adult education - such as the training of adult educators - and explores the political and economic dimensions of teaching adults. He covers works explaining how public libraries, museums, and the Cooperative Extension Service have developed services to transmit knowledge, culture, information, and enjoyment to people of every age group. And he shows how the adult challenges of patenting, citizenship and work have led to family life courses, group process training, and human resource development."

Residential continuing education by Cyril O Houle( Book )

5 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theme of this discursive essay is residential continuing education: its definition, its development along somewhat different lines in Europe and in America, and its practice in university centers in the United States. Continuing education includes any learning or teaching program that is based on the assumptions that the learners have studied some related body of content previously and that they wish to carry on the process further. Practical considerations usually make it necessary for an adult to spend only a short time away from his normal environment. Thus, residential education customarily has a compass of from one day to several months. Four patterns of residential education emerge: (1) structured so that all daily activities focus on the learning process, (2) structured so that daily activities are closely related to the learning process, (3) structured so that activities have little relation to learning, and (4) structured so that daily activities have no relation to learning. One conclusion reached in this essay is that in the 20 years since major university centers of residential continuing education appeared, they have made progress toward establishing themselves as important instruments of an old conception of teaching.
