The Handbook of Adult and Continuing Education
Posted on 07/26/2022
We recently learned about the 2020 edition of The Handbook of Adult and Continuing Education. Although primarily written for scholars, this handbook is also a valuable resource for educators, administrators, and policymakers and it may be a resource that your school, consortium, or library considers for purchase.
The Handbook is divided into five main sections and covers a wide variety of topics, including:
- Foundations – The developments, core debates, perspectives, and key principles that form the basis of the field
- Understanding Adult Learning – Adult learning, adult development, motivation, access, participation, and support of adult learners
- Teaching Practices and Administrative Leadership – Organization and administration, program planning, assessment and evaluation, teaching perspectives, andragogy and pedagogy, and digital technologies for teaching and learning
- Formal and Informal Learning Contexts – Adult basic, GED, and literacy education, English-as-a-Second Language Programs, family literacy, prison education, and workforce development, as well as many other learning contexts
- Contemporary Issues
You can read this Review of The Handbook from the Summer 2022 issue of the journal Adult Literacy Education from our colleagues at ProLiteracy.
