What should be the content of learning programs for adults and who should decide? What are the implications for the quality of learning and the current emphasis on learning for and at work? How do adults learn from experience? In an attempt to answer these questions and others, "Culture and Processes of Adult Learning" discusses the outcomes of learning, both for the individual and the community.
