Abstract "Planning Programs for Adult Learners, Fourth Edition covers the development of adult education programs in clear, specific detail. The book serves two purposes: as a resource for a synthesis of relevant literature that has influenced the practice of adult education, and as a comprehensive guide to planning educational programs. The book is an important resource not only for those who are full-time program planners but also for those who plan programs as one part of their job. Adult educators, HRD practitioners, undergraduate and graduate students, continuing professional educators, and trainers will find this book to be an essential tool. Informed by a variety of planning models and planning-related research, the new edition includes: new refinements to the 11-component interactive model a focus on the challenges to educators of displacement, climate change, economic dislocation and inequality an international perspective on planning programs with more globally-relevant examples and research templates and other practical guides to help with planning and organizing common administrative tasks a template to create programs to address emergency critical events ideas for developing programs to generate dialogue and debate about rapidly unfolding world events a focus on critical managerial tasks formats for planning programs using current and emerging digital delivery tools and techniques including virtual and augmented reality"-- Provided by publisher.
