Reexamining Theories of Adult Learning and Adult Development through the Lenses of Public Pedagogy
Sandlin, Jennifer A.; Wright, Robin Redmon; Clark, Carolyn
Adult Education Quarterly: A Journal of Research and Theory, v63 n1 p3-23 Feb 2013
The authors examine the modernist underpinnings of traditional adult learning and development theories and evaluate elements of those theories through more contemporary lenses. Drawing on recent literature focused on "public pedagogy," the authors argue that much learning takes place outside of formal educational institutions. They look beyond modernist narratives of adult development and consider the possible implications for critical adult learning occurring in and through contemporary fragmented, digital, media-saturated culture.
