Adult Health Learning and Transformation: A Case Study of a Canadian Community-Based Program
Coady, Maureen
Adult Education Quarterly: A Journal of Research and Theory, v63 n4 p321-337 Nov 2013
This article describes a case study of adult learning in a Canadian multisite Community Cardiovascular Hearts in Motion program. The researcher highlights the informal learning of 40 adult participants in this 12-week community-based cardiac rehabilitation/education program in five rural Nova Scotia communities. The effects of this learning and barriers are examined, along with aspects of program design and facilitation that support learning and transformation. The researcher points to the role of emotion in this transformative learning process, and links are made between individual and collective processes in the transformative learning. Transformative learning theorists and health and adult education practitioners can see in this case study how individual and collective health interests can be incorporated into program planning for the community.
