Can We Do It Better? A Case Study of How Reflection within a Programme Team Supports Changes and Innovations to Practice
McTaggart, Breda; Walsh, Orla
Adult Learner: The Irish Journal of Adult and Community Education, p100-108 2013
Adult learners, and women in particular, have to combat a number of specific barriers to participate in lifelong learning opportunities. Frequently, delivery modes of adult learning programmes do not take these varying demands into consideration (McCulloch & Stokes, 2008). However, when they do, positive results ensue. This case study discusses these issues, highlighting how innovations and changes to delivery methodologies of a part-time degree programme impacted positively on recruitment and retention of the viable student cohort of students.
