On Teaching Adults: An Anthology.
Miller, Marilyn V., Ed.
The bulk of this anthology treats adults as different from adolescents, in learning and in other respects, and the resultant demands which these differences make upon flexible, conscientious teachers of adults. Three essays deal with an overall view of adult education, its challenges, problems, and rewards. Other essays are concerned with the position of the university in adult education, the pressures upon it from without and within, and the philosophy of education, (the nature of knowledge, the values of a liberal education, and an evaluation of both teaching and learning). Several articles discuss teachers of adults, the types of people they are, types of responsibilities they have, and the qualities that are appropriate to a good teacher. The nature of the adult, his roles, attitudes, learning abilities -- as well as general principles of good teaching of adults, including how adult teaching differs from other kinds of teaching and the limits of pedagogical authority -- are also considered.
