Contributions of Qualitative Research to Adult Education.
Merriam, Sharan B.
Adult Education Quarterly, v39 n3 p161-68 Spr 1989
The use of qualitative research methodology in adult education has (1) led to the concepts of marginality, enrollment economy, and perspective transformation; (2) stimulated research in participation, motivation, and self-directed learning; and (3) increased understanding of adult illiterates. Qualitative inquiry has potential for extending the knowledge base of adult education in the future. (Author/CH)
