Adult educators have a long tradition of valuing learning from experience. Collaborative inquiry (CI), a systematic process that educators can use to help adults make meaning from their experience, has attracted little attention from adult educators in North America. The contributing authors draw from collective experience and illustrate how CI is a powerful strategy for facilitating many different kinds of learning, from deep personal identity issues to innovative skills for the workplace. They bring alive the practice of CI through richly detailed case descriptions. Each project described in this book created a complex learning experience for its participants, the fullness of which cannot be captured within the space limits of this volume. Authors highlight particular characteristics of their projects so that this volume, taken as a whole, would represent the diversity of issues that we believe are important to adult educators. Each author "tells an engaging story," to evoke in the reader a felt sense of the CI experience. This book's objective is to provide guidance to adult educators while at the same time adding to the emerging discourse about this process.
This is the 94th volume of the Jossey-Bass series New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education.
