Self-Education: The Founding of Adult Education--Part II.
Callender, Willard D., Jr.
After recapitulating certain problems with current conceptions of the profession of adult education and stating a design problem for the reinvention of the field, this paper argues that adult education can best be seen as "self-education." A beginning definition and concept of that term is described, along with a model and supporting guides for conducting self-education. The paper concludes with an examination of why the profession of adult education would be founded more soundly on this basis than upon its current assumptions. (Author/KC)
