Product Description

By Bruce Allen Knight

Published: 2003
ISBN: 978-1-876682-45-3
Pages: xi+165
Imprint: Post Pressed


The new millennium challenges us all with increased access to knowledge, technological reconfigurations, changing patters of interaction between and among individuals and other non-human 'actors', and encourages learners to be independent and productive lifelong learners. Thus, what types of learning will prepare learners with diverse needs to not only survive but also thrive in such an ever-changing environment and what types of settings are appropriate for such learnings?

The papers in this edited collection explore the realities of a knowledge society and the implications for learning in it. They challenge traditional practice and structures, relate to high-level policy documents, create solutions to define problems, and enhance clients' learning.
