Cultural Influences on Adult Learning.
Conti, Gary J., Ed.; Fellenz, Robert A., Ed.
Five projects are reported that examined factors related to adult learning in nontraditional environments. "Conrad, Montana: A Community of Memories" (Janice Counter, Lynn Paul, and Gary Conti) reports on a group of adults who for over 40 years have been active in building a better community for friends, relatives, and themselves. A 17-item bibliography lists archives, interviews, and articles, books, and records. "Investing in the Capital Assets of Adults" (Allen Moore) assesses the broad economic implications for a Southern community of its citizens' participation in educational activities. "Contrasting Foundations for Learning and Teaching: Selfhood in China and the United States" (Daniel Pratt) examines the influence of cultural traditions on learners. A model is proposed for how people develop a sense of self. "Educational Barriers to Rural Adults" (Stanley Easton) focuses on barriers to educational participation for adult learners in the rural Northwest. "Development and Utilization of Professional Literature: A Survey of Adult Education Professors" (Ralph Brockett) examines the creation of knowledge in an organizational culture. (YLB)
