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.

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

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.

The second edition of Assessment for Excellence arrives as higher education enters a new era of the accountability movement. In the face of mandates such as results-based funding and outcomes-based accreditation, institutions and assessment specialists are feeling increasingly pressured to demonstrate accountability to external constituencies. The practice of assessment under these new accountability pressures takes on special significance for the education of students and the development of talent across the entire higher education system. This book introduces a talent development approach to educational assessment as a counter to prevailing philosophies, illustrating how contemporary practices are unable to provide institutions with meaningful data with which to improve educational outcomes. It provides administrators, policymakers, researchers, and analysts with a comprehensive framework for developing new assessment programs to promote talent development and for scrutinizing existing policies and practices. Written for a wide audience, the book enables the lay reader to quickly grasp the imperatives of a properly-designed assessment program, and also to gain adequate statistical understanding necessary for examining current or planned assessment policies. More advanced readers will appreciate the technical appendix for assistance in conducting statistical analyses that align with a talent development approach. In addition, institutional researchers will benefit from sections that outline the development of appropriate student databases.
