Social Change and Adult Education Research--Adult Education Research in Nordic Countries 1990/91.
Linkoping Univ. (Sweden). Dept. of Education and Psychology.
This yearbook contains papers that provide the reader with a general idea of the aspects and issues that interest Nordic researchers today and how they approach these problems. To provide a more uniform picture of the status of adult education in the different Nordic countries, four brief general surveys begin the book: "Adult Education Research in Denmark" (Bjarne Wahlgren); "Adult Education Research in Finland" (Jukka Tuomisto); "Adult Education Research in Norway" (Anna Gullichsen); and "Adult Education Research in Sweden" (Maj Klasson). Papers on Denmark include the following: "Participants' Outcome of Courses for Long-Term Unemployed" (Vibe Aarkrog, Bjarne Wahlgren); "General Qualification of Unskilled and Semi-Skilled Workers" (Knud Illeris); "Problems and Potentials in Danish Adult Education" (Bo Jacobsen); and "Seven Ascertainments of Adult Education" (Kim Jacobsen). Finnish papers are as follows: "Transforming Adult Teaching" (Antti Kauppi); "Framework for Adult Education" (Seppo Kontiainen, Jyri Manninen); "Elements of Teaching Materials in Multiform Instruction" (Kari Nurmi); "Future of Adult Education" (Pirkko Remes); "Quality Circles as a Learning Environment" (Urpo Sarala); and "Development of Trade Union Education and New Challenges" (Jukka Tuomisto). Five articles relate to Norway: "Governing of Knowledge: Case of Work-Related Adult Education and Training" (Jens Bjornavold); "What Role Do Age and Context Play in Self-Regulated Learning" (Tove Dahl); "Survey of Participation in the Municipal and County Municipal Adult Education in Norway during School Year 1990-91" (Bjorn Madsen); "Contribution of Voluntary Organization to Norwegian Adult Education" (Leif Moland); and "Development of Mother Tongue Teachers' Further Education" (Perly Norberg). Papers on Sweden are as follows: "Knowledge and Democracy" (Lars Arvidson, Kjell Rubenson); "Postmodern Learning Process--Composition of Knowledge in New Social Movements" (Bosse Bergstedt); "Adults' Life and Learning" (Lena Borgstrom, Robert Hoghielm); "Research Circle--Some Educational Perspectives" (Lars Holmstrand, Gunilla Harnsten); and "Essence of Teaching Adults--Views of 124 Swedish Teachers in Municipal Adult Education" (Staffan Larsson). Notes on contributors are appended. (YLB)
