Keeping the Doors of Learning Open for Adult Student-Workers within Higher Education?
Walters, Shirley; Abrahams, Mark; Witbooi, Sally
Adult Learner: The Irish Journal of Adult and Community Education, p31-44 2015
The Freedom Charter of the African National Congress (ANC), the triumphant South African liberation movement, proclaims that "the doors of learning shall be open" for all. Twenty years since coming to power, the doors of the universities are struggling to stay open for adult student-workers. An action research project into implementation of "flexible provision" at one historically black university is described in response to these realities. Rich experiences from lives of working librarian student-workers illustrate the complex issues that confront individuals, workplaces and institutions in implementing innovative pedagogies within a university.
