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

4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 574 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)

"Drawing on the contributions of 75 leading authors in the field, this 2010 Edition of the respected Handbook of Adult and Continuing Education provides adult education scholars, program administrators, and teachers with a solid foundation for understanding the current guiding beliefs, practices, and tensions faced in the field, as well as a basis for developing and refining their own approaches to their work and scholarship." "Offering expanded discussions in the areas of social justice, technology, and the global dimensions of adult and continuing education, the Handbook continues the tradition of previous volumes with discussions of contemporary theories, current forms and contexts of practice, and core processes and functions. Insightful chapters examine adult and continuing education as it relates to gender and sexuality, race, our aging society, class and place, and disability." "In addition to being a valuable resource for practitioners, Handbook of Adult and Continuing Education, 2010 Edition, can be used as a text for master's and doctoral level courses in adult and continuing education."--Jacket

Dialogue on issues of lifelong learning in a democratic society : working papers from a British and North American faculty exchange by Gary J., Ed Conti( Book )

2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These 12 papers are the products of an exchange of a group of promising British and North American adult education researchers, relatively new to the professoriate, for short intensive visits to the other country. These visits were to provide individuals and universities opportunities to develop linkages that might further comparative research and programmatic cooperation. The contributions from British researchers include: "Dialectical Thinking: Our Logical Potential" (Paula Allman) offers an explanation of this way of thinking that all adults have the potential to develop. "Towards an Analysis of the Curriculum of University Extra-Mural Departments in Britain" (Paul F. Armstrong) focuses on the role of both the adult education tutor and students in shaping the curriculum."Training Women Managers" (Sandra Langrish-Clyne) addresses women's training needs. "Staff Development Courses in uk Universities for the Continuing Education Field" (K. Leni Oglesby) discusses challenges to those training staff in the continuing education field. "State Intervention in Vocational Education: a British Case Study" (John V. Wallis) describes the Youth Opportunities Programme. "New Developments in Science and Technology for Women" (Miriam Zukas) argues for the development of a new curriculum area in liberal adult education. The North American papers include: "Transpersonal Psychology: Guiding Image for the Advancement of International Adult Education" (Marcie Boucouvalas) which explores an image that could guide the further advancement of the field in terms of both theory and plans of action. The next three papers are study reports: "Training Educators of Adults: a Comparative Analysis of Graduate Adult Education in the United States and Great Britain" (Stephen Brookfield); "Analyzing the Short-Term and Long-Term Effectiveness of Continuing Professional Education" (Ronald M. Cervero); and "Teaching Style and Learner Achievement: The Anglo Connection" (Gary J. Conti). The final two papers, with descriptive titles, are "The Educational Broker: An Emerging Role for Adult Educators" (Michael Day) and "Supporting Adult Students: The Role of Significant Others" (Linda H. Lewis). (Ylb)
