Planning Responsibly for Adult Education: A Guide to Negotiating Power and Interests by Ronald M. Cervero
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


People, politics, and variable funding all contribute to the complexity of the program planning process for continuing education. In this book, Cervero and Wilson articulate a theory of program planning as a social - rather than scientific - process. In so doing, they open up dialogue in an area where debate is badly needed. 'Must reading for practitioners and professors of adult and continuing education.' Von Pittman, associate dean, Division of Continuing Education, University of Iowa
