The Second Edition of Developing Programs in Adult Education will serve as an indispensable guide for current and prospective adult educators in planning, designing/implementing, and evaluating/accounting for adult education programs. Like the successful First Edition, this revised and expanded volume presents a conceptual programming model that draws from many concepts, constructs, and theories generated by adult educators and other scholars in closely allied disciplines. The updated model, field tested and validated, enhances and elaborates on the complex contextual relationships and processual actions represented in the original. The authors offer illustrative applications within varied organizational contexts and provide a panorama of both macro- and micro-perspectives and actions of a program planning process, with examples from various fields of adult education practice. This innovative text is the definitive authority on one of the few theoretical models of the programming process based in systems theory merged with the practice ecology of adult education.

Developing and Sustaining Adult Learners is the second volume in a series of scholarly publications associated with the annual Adult Higher Education Alliance (AHEA, The Alliance) conference. The title of this volume, derived from the theme of the 2012 conference cosponsored by American Association of Adult and Continuing Education (AAACE) in Las Vegas, NV, encompasses significant issues and questions at the forefront of the field of adult education. At the conference, scholars, practitioners, and adult educators gave presentations and received feedback on some of the most significant and timely issues in their praxis. The Alliance, which values collaboration, transformative dialogue, and collegiality among professionals, considers this volume a continuation of those conversations as the presentations were expanded into chapters. We are glad that you are joining the conversation. This volume confirms not only that adult learning, higher education, and both fields of research have many contexts, but also that there is so much more to learn about different perspectives and opportunities for research and practice. Opportunities for symbiotic relationship abound. We hope that Developing and Sustaining Adult Learners will be a book that you pull off your bookshelf, or open in your ereader, often. We know that as we engage in program and course planning, design and teaching, this book will provide needed refreshment and new vision. When research ideas seem too similar, this volume will also provide many seeds for new opportunities.

This book is an examination of several different curriculum models found in adult education. The approach is to focus on the primary purpose being served by the adult education enterprise, such as organizational effectiveness, liberal education and adult basic education, and to describe representational curriculum models from each. The descriptions will permit another way to view the otherwise complex field of adult education and enable comparisons of the different curriculum models. The book will provide both an overview of the field and insights into the curriculum development process within sub-areas of the field.

In Working the Planning Table, Ronald M. Cervero and Arthur L. Wilson offer a theory that accounts for planners' lived experience and provides a guide for developing effective educational programs for adults. The book presents three planning case studies that illustrate how power, interests, ethical commitment, and negotiation are central to planners' everyday work. These stories offer guidance on how to respond to the realities of practice and clearly point out that the technical work of planning is always political. Working the Planning Table reveals how people work to negotiate educational and political outcomes for multiple stakeholders. Working the Planning Table is an essential resource for all educational planners. In addressing the perennial topics of planning, Cervero and Wilson show how assessing needs, developing objectives, designing instruction, and administering and evaluating programs always require planners' ethical commitment and astute political negotiation of interests in social and organizational contexts. Praise for Working the Planning Table "These case studies are gritty and complex-- excellent for class discussion that gets beneath the usual gloss of program development." -- Tara Fenwick, associate professor, Department of Educational Policy Studies, University of Alberta "A thorough and thoughtful political analysis of useful cases from Cervero and Wilson's own planning experience." -- Thomas J. Sork, professor of adult education, University of British Columbia "The authors' unrelenting adherence to the real stories of planners as they negotiate interests and power cannot help but strike a responsive chord among practitionersfor whom the political and ethical dimensions of planning can not longer be ignored." -- Tom Heaney, associate professor, Adult Continuing, and Literacy Education, National-Louis University "Working the Planning Table illustrates well the realities of planning programs for adults within a political and social context. What is different and unique about the message is how we planners can bridge the gap between our skills and technical expertise as planners, and our abilities to address the power dynamics and the ethical dilemmas that arise, while at the same time continue to sustain a democratic process of planning." -- Rosemary S. Caffarella, professor and chair, Department of Education, Cornell University
