Mauch, Werner, Ed.; Papen, Uta, Ed.
This book highlights examples of innovative educational practices in the field of organized adult learning. Fifteen chapters present outcomes of collective research in the Innovations in Nonformal and Adult Education (INNAE) project. "Common Learning--Collective Research: Innovating Adult Education" (Werner Mauch, Uta Papen) describes the methodology and identifies five transversal or common issues that appeared in the case studies. Part II contains the case studies prepared by INNAE participants: "Innovating for Change: Women's Education for Empowerment: Analysis of the Mahila Samakhya Program in Banda District"; "Graduate Resource Advancement (GREAT): Non-Formal Exposure of Youth to Rural Development" (S.B. Ekanayake); "Question de Competences--The Competence Issue: Tool for Women" (Rachel Belisle); "And the Hammock Lingers On: Whither Theater-for-Development" (Hansel Ndumbe Eyoh); "The Community Health Workers' School of the Union of Palestinian Medical Relief Committees" (Jihad Mash'al); "Kenyan Experience on Training Adult Education Teachers through Distance Education" (Khalfan A.

Rosa Saavedra Diaz); and "The Fisherfolk Environmental Education Project: Timely Innovation in Popular Environmental Education Philippines" (M. Linnea Villarosa-Tanchuling).
