Summary
  • "This volume is an up-to-date version of the popular Update on Adult Learning Theory published in 1993. Traditional theories of andragogy and self-directed learning are revisited, and the burgeoning scholarship on transformational learning and informal and incidental learning is reviewed. Three chapters are devoted to new developments in perspectives introduced in 1993 - women's learning, context-based learning (situated cognition), and critical and postmodern theories. Finally, three very recent approaches to adult learning are presented in this New Update on Adult Learning Theory: emotion and imagination in adult learning, the brain and consciousness, and somatic and narrative knowing. The concluding chapter assesses the contributions of the last decade in expanding our understanding of adult learning."--Jacket
