The Scope of Adult Education: A Summary of Views.
Payne, Douglas
The booklet is designed to provide for a non-professional audience a summary of ideas on the scope, purpose, and concepts of adult education in Tasmania. It discusses the definition of adult education, states seven characteristics of adult education in Australia (flexibility, ethos, participation, coverage, non-class activities, decentralization, and informality), and discusses the scope of activity with respect to eight main areas of activity: further chance courses, creativity, academic studies, basic education, social education, community development, special education, and residential education. In addition, the guide touches upon the questions of location and staffing of adult education programs. A one-page bibliography is included. (JR)
