Getting Our Hands on History
Heinrich, Cherry; Brown, Cynthia
Adults Learning, v20 n9 p28-29 May 2009
It all began with a discussion about storage. Rows of dusty boxes were sitting in the cellar of Vaughan College, home to the University of Leicester's Institute for Lifelong Learning. They contained papers, booklets and publicity leaflets, the outpourings of the Leicester Workers' Educational Association (WEA) branch's 100-year history. When the Leicester branch of the WEA wanted to mark its hundredth anniversary there seemed no better way than to get a class of adult learners to research and write the branch's history. The process proved both challenging and hugely rewarding.
