Overview

"This is the third edition of Mark Tennant's text, which examines the role of psychology in informing adult education practice. It explores the seminal traditions of key psychological theories, and discusses issues and problems in applying them to an understanding of adult learning and development." "This new edition is thoroughly revised and updated in light of the impact of globalising processes and the application of new information technologies, and the influence of postmodernism on psychology. It examines the formation of identities, and places increased emphasis on what it means to be a lifelong learner." Psychology and Adult Learning is essential reading for those who seek a critical account of how psychology informs contemporary adult education theory and practice.
