Handbook of Adult and Continuing Education


Handbook of Adult and Continuing Education by Carol E. Kasworm

Drawing on the contributions of 75 leading authors in the field, this 2010 Edition of the respected Handbook of Adult and Continuing Education provides adult education scholars, programme administrators, and teachers with a solid foundation for understanding the current guiding beliefs, practices, and tensions faced in the field, as well as a basis for developing and refining their own approaches to their work and scholarship. Offering expanded discussions in the areas of social justice, technology, and the global dimensions of adult and continuing education, the Handbook continues the tradition of previous volumes with discussions of contemporary theories, current forms and contexts of practice, and core processes and functions. Insightful chapters examine adult and continuing education as it relates to gender and sexuality, race, our aging society, class and place, and disability.


Serving as a useful overview of the field's landscape at a given point in time and place, the Handbook enjoys a unique status as the point of first reference when exploring the disparate theory and practice of adult and continuing education. The 2010 Handbook under the skilled editorial guidance of Carol E. Kasworm, Amy D. Rose, and Jovita M. Ross-Gordon continues the informed legacy of the preceding volumes. At the same time, it advances the academic and professional substance of the field with attention to its symbiotic nature and impact on the broader society.Published by the American Association for Adult and Continuing Education (AAACE) with SAGE Publications, the Handbook is a needed addition to the adult educator's professional collection. In one readable compendium it provides a baseline status report of where the field is today, its intellectual and institutional antecedents, and future directions. Practitioners and scholars in the field will find conceptual and applied material synthesized in a lucid fashion. The bibliographic citations provide a map to research and standards of practice over the past several decades. -- James K. Broomall, Assistant Provost * The Journal of Continuing Higher Education *
