Psychosocial development of women : linkages to teaching and leadership in adult education by Rosemary S Caffarella( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Theories and models of adult development over the life span provide one of the foundational pieces for gaining a clearer understandings of learning in adulthood. Only recently have adult educators spoken more forcefully about the lack of integrated research on adult women. The purpose of this monograph is to describe those missing female voices as portrayed in the literature of the psychosocial development of women and to suggest links to the practice of teaching and leadership in adult education. Three kinds of studies are reviewed: analysis or conceptualization of the psychological development of women; investigations of developmental issues with all-female samples; and materials on the teaching/learning process with women as well as women and leadership. The first section discusses the literature from two frameworks: more traditional models and entirely new ways of thinking about women's development. Three major themes emerge: the importance of relationships, women's diverse and nonlinear patterns of development, and intimacy and identity. In the second section, suggestions are given for alternative theoretical perspectives, such as critical theory and feminist theory, alternative research designs and data collection techniques, and differing subject pools. The final two sections explore how the literature on women's development could be linked to the practice of teaching adults and on women and leadership within the framework of the three major themes of development, offering practical suggestions for instructors and leaders in adult education.

Qualitative Research on Self-Directed Learning by Rosemary S Caffarella( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Only eight recent studies clearly fit the parameters of qualitative research on self-directed learning. Four of the studies appear to fit the more traditional notion of what the qualitative paradigm is all about, in that they are exploratory in nature. The remaining four studies focus more on the expansion of earlier ideas that had been generated by previous research on self-directed learning. The number of subjects for all but one study can be characterized as "normal" for studies that are qualitative in nature (sizes ranged from 10 to 33). What is interesting is that in general they appear more broadly based in terms of the educational and socieconomic background of the subjects than the quantitative studies. The data collection technique used most often was the unstructured or semistructured interview. An examination of these studies as a group indicates that the key contribution the authors have provided to the knowledge on self-directed learning is a more in-depth picture of how individual learners go about organizing, doing, and evaluating their own learning. These findings provide a fruitful direction for future research on self-directed learning. (Ylb)

This how-to guide and resource book is designed to help in planning educational and training programs for adults in settings from the corporate sector to educational organizations.

Chapter 1 describes adult programs and discusses planners, sponsors, purposes, outcomes, and program planning models. Chapter 2 presents an overview of the model, basic assumptions on which it rests, its sources, and users. Chapter 3 addresses using the model: identifying personal beliefs about program planning, developing upfront parameters, determining which model components and tasks to use, and using technology in program planning. Chapters 4 through 15 each explain one model component and give practical tips and ideas related to concrete tasks within the component. These are the model components: discern the context; build a solid base of support; identify program ideas; sort and prioritize program ideas; develop program objectives; design instructional plans; devise transfer-of-learning plans; formulate evaluation plans; make recommendations and communicate results; select formats, schedules, and staff needs; prepare budgets and marketing plans; and coordinate facilities and on-site events. Each chapter concludes with highlights and application exercises. Chapter 16 revisits the model. Appendixes include 301 references and an index. Contains 9 figures, 40 exercises, and 73 exhibits.)
