Item Description...
Sponsored by the American Association of Adult & Continuing Education "This monumental work is a testimony to the science of adult education and the skills of Wilson and Hayes. It is a veritable feast for nourishing our understanding of the current field of adult education. The editors and their well-chosen colleagues consistently question how we know and upon what grounds we act. They invite us to consider not only how we can design effective adult education, but also why we practice in a particular socio-economic context."
--Jane Vella, author of Taking Learning to Task and Learning to Listen, Learning to Teach

"This new handbook captures the exciting intellectual and professional development of our field in the last decade. It is an indispensable resource for faculty, students, and professionals."
--Jack Mezirow, emeritus professor, Adult and Continuing Education, Teachers College, Columbia University

For nearly seventy years, the handbooks of adult and continuing education have been definitive references on the best practices, programs, and institutions in the field. In this new edition, over sixty leading authorities share their diverse perspectives in a single volume--exploring a wealth of topics, including: learning from experience, adult learning for self-development, race and culture in adult learning, technology and distance learning, learning in the workplace, adult education for community action and development, and much more. Much more than a catalogue of theory and historical facts, this handbook strongly reflects the values of adult educators and instructors who are dedicated to promoting social and educational opportunity for learners and to sustaining fair and ethical practices.

surprised by quality  Feb 8, 2010
Though this was a used book, I was pleasantly surprised to see no markings in the book and the book itself in nearly new condition. Thanks!
Higher education  Dec 13, 2008
This is a comprehensive manual for those who wish to become better facilitators of adult learners. Bought it for a Masters class, but will not resell it. Permanent spot on my bookshelf. Chardee
