    Taylor and Francis 2011; US$ 50.95

    Adult learning matters. There is now widespread agreement that modern countries depend on the creativity, skills and knowledge of the entire population for their prosperity. Many people talk of our future well-being in terms of a ‘knowledge economy’ or a ‘learning society’ in which every person’s ability to develop new capabilities will provide them... more...

  • Improving Literacy at Workby Alison Wolf; Karen Evans

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 50.95

    Modern societies demand high levels of literacy. The written word is pervasive; individuals with poor literacy skills are deeply disadvantaged; and governments are increasingly pre-occupied with the contribution that skills can make to economic growth. As a result, the basic skills of adult workers are of concern as never before, a focus for workplace... more...

  • Orte des Lernensby Rudolf Egger; Regina Mikula; Sol Haring; Andrea Felbinger; Angela Pilch Ortega

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2008; US$ 40.15

    Damit Lernprozesse auch tatsächlich als lebenslange und lebensnahe Handlungsformen gesehen werden können, sind auch die oft unspezifizierten Lernorte der Subjekte stärker in den pädagogischen Blick zu nehmen. Gerade für bildungsungewohnte Menschen spielen informelle Lernwelten eine große Rolle. Im Bildungsdiskurs müssen deshalb die hier wirkenden spezifischen... more...

    Übergänge im Bildungssystem stellen komplexe Entscheidungssituationen dar, die in einem differenzierten Bildungssystem einen weit reichenden Einfluss auf die Bildungs- und Berufsbiographien der Schülerinnen und Schüler haben und nicht losgelöst von gesellschaftlichen und institutionellen Rahmenbedingungen zu verstehen sind. Das neue Sonderheft der... more...

  • Indoktrination und Erziehungby Henning Schluß

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2008; US$ 30.10

    Der Begriff 'Erziehung' wird von der Wissenschaft gleichen Namens schon seit längerem kaum noch erörtert. Andere Begriffe wie Bildung, Wissen oder gar Kompetenz stehen höher im Kurs. Möglicherweise weist der Erziehungsbegriff eine zu große Nähe zu seinem alter ego, der Indoktrination, auf. Die Grenze zwischen Erziehung und Indoktrination wird als fließend... more...
