Learning cities call for a connection of adult education to elementary, secondary, and postsecondary institutions along with vocational and corporate workspaces.
This volume considers how learning cities for adult learners could be created in America that promote lifelong learning and education. Encouraging a widespread approach to educate and learn across disciplines, within communities, and inside the minds of all people, topics covered include:
workplace and organizational learning,
community engagement and service learning,
public libraries and cooperative extension, and
leisure, recreation, and public health education.This is the 145th volume of the Jossey Bass series New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education. Noted for its depth of coverage, it explores issues of common interest to instructors, administrators, counselors, and policymakers in a broad range of education settings, such as colleges and universities, extension programs, businesses, libraries, and museums.
