Adult Education at the Margins and towards New Paradigms. Occasional Paper Number 2.
Benn, Roseanne; And Others
This document contains four papers that examine four diverse topics from the field of adult education: multiculturalism, ageism, mathematics, and new paradigm research. In "Editorial Introduction," Roger Fieldhouse gives an overview of the papers and the experience of their authors. The first paper, "Multi-Cultural Perspectives on Adult Education: Putting Policy into Practice" (Nancy Gidley), discusses the need for multicultural education and issues of curriculum, access, staff development, resources, and management. The role of nurse education in challenging ageist attitudes among student nurses in the delivery of health care to older adults is examined in Catherine Cadman's paper "Ageist Practice in Nursing: The Challenge to Professional Education." In her paper "Transposing Mathematics from the Margins to the Centre," Roseanne Benn discusses the links between democracy, adult education, and mathematics. Allen Parrott's paper "Adult Education and New Paradigm Research" describes new paradigm research and suggests that adult education would be an especially fertile ground for new-style inquiry methods and philosophy because of their accord with adult education values.
