Adult Learners' Learning In A University Setting by Hilkka Roisko

This book is a phenomenographic study on adult learners' learning in a university setting. Having been involved for many years in adult education at a university level I became concerned about the efficacy of adults' learning. My point of view was that we adult educators do not yet have enough knowledge and understanding of adults' learning, especially with future prospects in mind. Therefore the specific intention of this book was to find a kind of perspective which might be helpful in educating adult learners for a future that is constantly changing. A promising way to combine a study on adults' learning and methods investigating that learning was found from an integration of the ideas of learning of the new phenomenography and a phenomenographic research approach. It may be realistic to suggest that both the findings by themselves and the method by which the findings were obtained will introduce novel contributions to the field of the users of the book.

This book is especially useful to pedagogues, educators, researchers and professionals dealing with adult learners in universities and other higher education institutions as well as in organizations.
