This book provides a compelling demonstration of how the basic theory of andragogy takes on new meanings in different social settings. Rather than defying Western andragogy, this book addresses this single most popular theory from different cultural perspectives around the globe and develops different understandings of how it may be understood, contextualized, or sometimes misunderstood. Additionally, teachers, students and administrators should find the book useful in guiding their journeys in lifelong learning.
More and more scholars of adult learning look for additional theories such as the theory of transformative learning advanced by Western theorists and researchers, Mezirow (1991, 2000), Cranton (1994) and King (2002, 2003, 2005). Indeed, Comparative Adult Education Around the Globe, by examining the acts of others illustrates that we may improve our own understanding and practice of adult education.
Readers, whether they are learners or educators of others, can be equipped with new insights and knowledge when addressing adult learning in different social contexts. Comparative Adult Education Around the Globe offers an opportunity to tour the constellation of adult learning, reflect within many world communities, to critically examine our own practice and perspectives, and to gain valuable personal and professional insight.
