Teaching for Social Capital Outcomes: The Case of Adult Literacy and Numeracy Courses
Balatti, Jo; Black, Stephen; Falk, Ian
Australian Journal of Adult Learning, v47 n2 p245-263 Jul 2007
There is strong evidence that participation in education and training can produce social capital outcomes. There is also strong evidence that such outcomes are useful outcomes; they can enhance the development of other outcomes often called human capital and they can contribute to the social-economic wellbeing of the learners and the communities in which they live. Yet, little research has been done on the pedagogy and other conditions that produce social capital outcomes in education and training. This paper reports on a research project that investigated what teachers do to produce social capital outcomes in adult literacy and numeracy courses. (Contains 1 figure.)
