Overview

In this revised second edition, Houle adds almost twenty-five years of additional experience and reflection to this classic work as he sets forth the goals and objectives of adult learning that cut across all settings and levels—uniting adult educators everywhere. Charting out the common ground of adult education program, Houle emphasizes the importance of a systematic approach to program planning as a central unifying feature of adult education theory and practice. He offers an up-to-date blueprint for planning, setting up, and evaluating adult education programs of any size—along with specific guidance that shows educators how to use his model to implement the type of program best suited to their needs and the needs of their learners.
