Description

In this era of economic uncertainty, there has been renewed interest in the benefits of adult and higher education for economic and professional gain. André P. Grace questions this perspective and advocates for a holistic view that also incorporates the social, cultural, and personal benefits of learning as a lifelong pursuit.

A detailed and thoughtful critique of the effects of neoliberalism and globalization on adult and higher education, this book examines the quality of lifelong learning in historical and contemporary contexts, with an emphasis on multivariate learner populations and education as a platform for social engagement, ethics, and justice. Weaving together academic analysis and first-person reflections, the author addresses the diverse needs of learners from Canada and around the world in a variety of social and economic situations.

An essential text for anyone interested in the development of lifelong-learning policy and practice, Lifelong Learning as Critical Action is a call to action that challenges readers to engage with lifelong learning as a critical, democratic, and inclusive process.

FEATURES:

  • incorporates theoretical analyses, narrative vignettes, and first-person reflection to develop a compelling argument
  • emphasizes multivariate learner populations and education as a platform for social engagement, ethics, and justice
  • contains inclusive and holistic examples from Canada and around the world that situate the discussions in a real-life context
