Adult Education @ 21st Century tackles tough questions concerning how to respond to and engage with transnational education markets and multicultural diversity in a global environment typified by disorienting changes and continuities. Researchers from different countries demonstrate various ways in which the teachers of adults mediate and mitigate the oppressive consequences of the contemporary transition to globalization and the resentment and alienation to which it gives rise. Based on analyses of their work, the contributors argue that teachers and policy makers involved in adult education are significant agents of innovation. From Germany and Norway, across Malaysia and Australia to Canada, the contributors to this book are engaging in transformative projects that are informed by globally oriented thinking and actions aimed at enhancing local viability. -- back cover.
