Researching Participation in Adult Education: A Case of Quantified Distortion.
Bagnall, Richard G.
International Journal of Lifelong Education, v8 n3 p251-60 Jul-Sep 1989
Most research on participation in adult education has focused on participative presence. However, learner involvement and control are far more important in adult education, and this disjunction leads to research findings of little practical value. More interpretive or critical research approaches would yield more valuable results and make participation research more compatible with desirable adult education practice. (SK)
