Adult education : evolution and achievements in a developing field of study by John Marshall Peters( Book )

7 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a companion to "Adult Education: Outlines of an Emerging Field of University Study" (more commonly known as "the black book"), a classic work published in 1964. It explores the developments, accomplishments, and changes in the field since 1964 and charts new directions for research, theory, and practice in the study of adult education. A foreword (Houle), preface, and biographies of the authors appear first. An introductory chapter, "Growth and Challenges in the Study of Adult Education" (Jarvis), outlines the nature of adult education as a field of study and some of the challenges that lie before it. The six chapters in Part 1 address in broad terms who studies the field, how they study it, and some of the outcomes: "Changing Relationships between Theory and Practice" (Cervero); "How Research Produces Knowledge" (Merriam); "Evolution of a Formal Knowledge Base" (Long); "The Impact of Intellectual Leadership" (Griffith); "Disseminating and Using Adult Education Knowledge" (Brockett); and "Growth and Future of Graduate Programs" (Peters, Kreitlow). Part 2 contains six chapters, each of which considers the relation of selected disciplines to the study of adult education: "The Psychology of Adult Teaching and Learning" (Tennant); "Educational Leadership and Program Administration" (Knox); "a Critical Perspective on Sociology and Adult Education" (Griffin); "Philosophical Foundations" (Lawson); "Relationships with Political Science" (Thomas); and "Learning from the Discipline of History" (Stubblefield). Part 3 contains three chapters that deal with special issues and forces that help shape the academic study of adult education: "International Influences on the Development of Knowledge" (Cunningham); "Social, Professional, and Academic Issues" (Deshler); and "Advancing the Study of Adult Education: a Summary Perspective" (Peters). In an epilogue, Malcolm Knowles takes a fresh look at the future of adult education as a field of study and practice. Standards for graduate programs in adult education are appended, and name and subject indexes conclude the volume. (Ylb)

Paradoxes of learning : on becoming an individual in society by Peter Jarvis( Book )

15 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As more is discovered about the powerful impact of lifelong learning on adults, educators are changing their views about how, when, and where we learn. Learning is no longer defined only in the context of formal educational settings but in social contexts as well--including families, the workplace, and religious and political groups. In this book, Peter Jarvis explores how learning is, in essence, our lifetime quest to understand personal identity, purpose, and meaning while conforming and adapting to the perceived and real confines of our paradoxical society. Drawing on more than twenty years' experience and research as an adult educator and scholar, Jarvis examines the complex social experience of learning, revealing how culture, gender, race, and other societal factors shape and mold an individual's identity and ability to function in relationships--the basis of all learning. He reveals how, during this process of developing the social self, we encounter numerous learning paradoxes--such as meaning and truth, being and having, and knowledge and change--that give rise to critical issues and implications for all educators, including teachers, clergy, health professionals, and human resource trainers. The author analyzes, for example, the contradictions of free will and self-directed learning within institutions that are controlled by others--including schools, government, and the workplace. He describes how the very institutions established to promote learning in society--including religion, education, and government--must also thwart learning potential and opportunity in the best interests of the institution--whether preserving democracy, protecting the common good, or preventing anarchy. He shows how a person's learning can be manipulated in the workplace; for instance, a manager is rewarded for learning reflectively and autonomously in order to lead and make vital decisions, yet also must use the same free will to conform to the mold of those in power. And Jarvis explores the difficult paradox of cultivating creative thinking and reflective action in a society that values tile acquisition of degrees, certificates, and titles over actual learning and growth

Towards a comprehensive theory of human learning : lifelong learning and the learning society by Peter Jarvis( Book )

23 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, the first in a forthcoming series, concentrates on the processes of human learning and considers the fact that research into learning itself has hitherto been unsystematic and, for a while, mainly psychological. In the first section of this book the author argues that learning is existential, and so its study must be complex and interdisciplinary. A number of the existing theories of learning are then critically examined, in order to see how they can be reconciled with a more complex model."--Jacket
