Adults Learning for Development
by A. Rogers

Abstract:
This book bridges the worlds of adult education and development. It argues that development workers and adult educators have a great deal to learn from each other, especially at a time when developmental issues have come to dominate political discussions in the West. The book should appeal to all who work in adult education and development. It looks at how adults learn and examines the crisis in adult and continuing education since the Second World War and the need for a new approach. Rogers offers a survey of development theories and practice and looks at the way adult / continuing education can re-orientate itself away from individual self-development to a national developmental model. The book surveys a large amount of literature in both adult / continuing education and development. It is aimed at students of adult education and adult education practitioners.
