Adult Learning, Adult Teaching

Adult Learning, Adult Teaching

by Carolyn Daines (Author), J.W. Daines (Author), Professor Brian Graham (Author)


Regarded as a classic text amongst teachers of adults and those working with adult groups in a variety of professional and adult community settings, Adult Learning, Adult Teaching has now been enlarged, updated and thoroughly revised for this fourth edition. This new fourth edition retains the direct and practical approach that has proved so successful with thousands of practitioners and contains additional chapters on: learning styles; equal opportunities; self-presentation; difficult students and 'reluctant attenders'; practical planning; attendance and drop-out; the observation of teaching and learning; guidance, progression and 'what next'; a real student's experiences of adult education with a matched critique addressed to her tutor.

Media Reviews
Always a good buy, Adult Learning Adult Teaching is very readable and gives the most practical help to tutors of any subject. This fully revised fourth edition, with a number of new sections, brings the book bang up to date. If there was one piece of essential reading I would want for my tutors it would be this book! -- Margaret Davey, former Principal, City Lit. ...Hellishly practical, this volume is a must for those who want theory and realism in practical grounds the esoteric in useable tips and applications -- Adults Learning. I cannot praise the publication too highly -- International Journal of Lifelong Education ...should become part of every adult educator's mental furniture -- Adult Education.
