The chapters promote participative learning through dialogue, discussion and creative activities. With over twenty years real experience of groupwork, the author provides: A set of flexible resources that you can adapt and develop for your own learning environments A series of activities and exercises which can be linked into the stages of group development Ideas for innovative learning programme design Methods that integrate group dynamics with the learning needs of the group A comprehensive definition of key terms Adult Learning in Groups is a vital handbook for anyone working in adult, higher and post-compulsory education.
