Study on the History of Adult Education in EuropeWritten by German
The paper “Development of Adult Education in Europe and in the Context of Knowles′ Study” offers a brief history of the development of adult education in Europe. It largely focuses on the origins of the contemporary definitions of adult education and the works of Malcolm S. Knowles, one of the scholars who helped establish the field. Teaching adults is much different from teaching children, so it is important to establish strategies and theories for the field of adult education.
Taking the time to read texts that provide the theoretical foundation for the field one works in can be useful for creating a deeper understanding of the strategies and objectives that can be implemented.
