Description - Globalization, Adult Education and Training by Shirley Walters

'Globalization' has become a key shorthand for the times we live in. But, fashionable as the term is, it does sum up some of the important changes which are affecting life in all parts of the world today. And adult educators are having to come to terms with the processes involved and the implications for their own work. This book looks at the impact of globalization on adult education and training generally, and on women more specifically. AET strategies, including towards women, workplace training and the recognition of experiential learning are explored, as are participatory approaches in diverse contexts and countries. The contributors also focus on the notion of life-long learning, its meaning and how to go about giving effect to it.
