Learning is a key issue in adult education. Being familiar with contemporary learning theory, therefore, is an essential prerequisite for education scholars and practitioners alike. Virtually any adult educational effort involves learning, both on the part of the learner and on the part of the teacher. It seems obvious and necessary, therefore, to explore learning processes from a theoretical point of view. Fortunately, education researchers and theorists have produced a growing body of knowledge on learning and teaching in recent years. Internationally acclaimed scholars - such as Peter Jarvis, Knud Illeris, or Ference Marton - have provided building blocks for a contemporary outlook on learning in educational situations. This book provides an overview on the most important contributions, combining them to form a person-oriented concept of learning and teaching in adult education.
