Summary

While 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 and 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.
