Learning Partnerships: Interdependent Learning in Adult Education.
Robinson, Joan, Ed.; And Others
This volume contains essays and studies dealing with learning partnerships in adult education. The introduction, written by Joan Robinson and Sharon Saberton, discusses the concept of the learning partnership, defined as a peer relationship between two people for whom the main objective is learning. The second section consists of comments of students in the Department of Adult Education of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) who have participated in a learning partnership and a report by Ross Keane entitled "A Case Study of a Two-Year Learning Partnership." Presented in the third section are an interview with Marge Denis, an OISE staff member who has participated in a successful learning partnership, and an essay by Virginia Griffin entitled "A Teacher's View of Learning Partnerships: or, Why Didn't I Think of It Years Ago?" Presented next are the following papers examining the use of learning partnerships in settings other than OISE: "Applying the Partnership Concept in Training Programs" by Sharon Saberton; "The Use of Learning Partnerships in a Five-Day Residential Lab" by Joan D. Conway; and "Notes on Assorted Applications of Learning Partnerships" by Virginia Griffin. Concluding the volume is an annotated bibliography. (MN)
