Adult Education

Stephen Brookfield's Understanding and Facilitating Adult Learning (1986) summarized six leading principles of adult education:

Adult Education includes all forms of schooling and learning programs in that adults participate in. Unlike other types of education, adult education is defined by the student population rather than by the content or complexity of a learning program. It includes literacy training, community development, university credit programs, on-the-job training, and continuing professional education. Programs vary in organization from casual, incidental learning to formal college credit courses.
