Adult Education and Lifelong Learning: Theory and Practice

Peter Jarvis

Adult Education and Lifelong Learning is regarded as one of the most widely used textbooks about adult education.

Now part of the Routledge Education Classic Edition series, this key title combines the practical and philosophical to cover all areas related to the topic, including how we understand people as learners, how to teach adults, curriculum planning, distance education and assessment. It doesn't shy away from complexity and asks difficult questions to provoke the reader into thinking about what lifelong learning really means. Not your basic 'how-to' book, it combines practice with theory and points the way to further studies and engagement in the field.

With a new introduction by Professor Sam Duncan to contextualise the work, this is a must-read text for all education students as well as practitioners and researchers in adult education and lifelong learning.
