Globalization, Lifelong Learning and the Learning Society by Peter Jarvis
Book DescriptionThis book critically assesses the learning that is required and provided within a learning society and gives a detailed sociological analysis of the emerging role of lifelong learning with examples from around the globe. Divided into three clear parts the book: * looks at the development of the knowledge economy * provides a critique of lifelong learning and the learning society * focuses on the changing nature of research in the learning society. The author, well-known and highly respected in this field, examines how lifelong learning and the learning society have become social phenomena across the globe. He argues that the driving forces of globalisation are radically changing lifelong learning and shows that adult education/learning only gained mainstream status because of these global changes and as learning became more work orientated.

Adult Learning in the Social Context, Paperback (June 2014)» View all books by Peter Jarvis
This title is a logical progression from 'The Sociology of Adult and Continuing Education.' The author takes a completely new approach to the subject and puts forward a model of adult learning which is analysed in depth. This model arises from the results of a research project in which adults analysed their own learning experiences.
