Everyday we are confronted with problems and challenges which we address by drawing on our experience and by using this experience to find ways of learning what to do in new circumstances. Learning through experience is the normal, commonplace approach to learning and we take it for granted. Whilst much is known about teaching and being taught, far less attention has been given to learning in context - in particular, to learning outside the classroom. Yet this is in fact where most learning takes place. One especially neglected area is the role which people, other than the learner, play in facilitating learning. This role is undertaken not only by teachers, trainers, parents and counsellors, but also by managers, supervisors, care-givers and friends. This book brings together the experiences of a number of practitioners; who write from often strongly contrasting perspectives; these include feminism, Marxism, critical pedagogy, post-modernism and Gestalt, humanistic, clinical and transpersonal psychology. The authors also come from a wide range of international backgrounds, including adult, higher and teacher education, community work, organisational development and psychotherapy. Each chapter is grounded not only in professional practice and in theory, but also in personal experience. Overall, then, the book provides fascinating insights into what some good practitioners do to promote learning, and how they make sense of this. David Boud is professor in the School of Adult Education, University of Technology, Sydney. Nod Miller is Professor in the Department of Innovation Studies, University of East London.
