Adult Learning Opportunities in Nepal
Regmi, Krishna; Regmi, Sharada
Journal of Adult and Continuing Education, v14 n1 p85-94 Spr 2008
This paper presents the initial findings from a study of education system in Nepal. This paper examines the adult learning opportunities within the educational and cultural contexts by reviewing available literature relevant to Nepal. Findings show that there are wider opportunities for adult learning than those considered from education and policy research perspectives, and these include autonomous and self-directed learning as well as learning from life experiences. Study also shows that learning among adults is more than a set of basic skills to be acquired and that literacy, equality and creativity can be understood through the everyday lives and sociocultural practices of learners. The paper concludes by considering the implications of these findings on teaching-learning methodologies suitable for adult education initiatives and for professional practice in Nepal.
